Essential Safety Measures

If you’re going to construct or modify a building; it needs to be done right, and it needs to last.

Whether it is a new development, a landmark project, a change of use or a sophisticated fit-out, the legal and regulatory bar is an important hurdle to clear, both now and into the future. We understand that it is better when there are no unforeseen hurdles or headaches.

Do you need expert compliance advice?

Annual Assessment for AFSS

If you find yourself having to defend your work, an independent expert is a must-have.

We’re experienced in providing expert opinions and reports for use in a full range of legal proceedings; from consultations with lawyers and liaison with building regulatory authorities to providing expert opinion testimony in court on behalf of our clients.

Some of the most common things an Expert Witness will be called to do include:

  • Assessing the compliance of a building structure
  • Resolving disputes
  • Carrying out site assessments, and
  • Providing forensic analysis of the design and regulatory adherence

Our experts haven’t just served as witnesses; many continue to advise on changes and improvements to the National Construction Code and Australian Standards (they’re the experts that the experts go to).

Maintenance Schedules

If you feel that you’ve been given an unfair verdict or that the building laws and regulations haven’t been properly applied to your project based on its class, construction or design, you can appeal.

What you need for a favourable judgement then, is an expert who can put together a definite case of compliance.

Building Surveyors and Building Certifiers advise that most State and Territory building legislation contain provisions, building appeals, building modifications or departures, that allow for an authority or building surveyor to vary particular requirements of the regulations and the Building Code of Australia (BCA), especially in the case of existing building upgrades.

Annual Certification Statements

Did you know that over 4.4 Million Australian’s (1 in 5) have some form of disability? Add with our ageing population, and you can see why buildings must cater to everyone, with equal access for everyone in and around your building.

Failing to follow the law here can be very expensive, with high rectification costs to bring buildings up to scratch under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992. Despite what some fear, equitable access solutions won’t hinder your design, they can even enhance it.

Maintain & Operate

Sometimes you need an expert on your side, providing sound advice based on Australian regulatory requirements.
