Dilapidation Surveys & Audit Reports
Inspections of properties adjoining major construction works
Asset Economics performs dilapidation surveys for independent inspections of properties adjoining major construction works that could be affected by the ground movement involved in the construction. We have carried out inspections in properties adjoining development earthworks, bridge & road construction, high rise developments, shopping centres and government infrastructure.
We inspect prior to construction commencement and again at the completion of the project, provide a written dilapidation survey with photographic evidence, to ensure any existing damage is not falsely claimed against the contractor involved in the construction works.
Example: On many projects, property owners have lodged a claim for damage that was supposedly caused by the construction work, but the damage was evident at the time of the first inspection, prior to the commencement of the works, and was documented with photographic evidence, in the initial survey. Needless to say the companies involved were able to have the claims dismissed.
