Do you have what it takes to tackle the challenges facing the construction industry?
The property industry faces challenges in addressing quality concerns raised around building envelopes installed during past construction projects. High on today’s agenda is building owners wanting certainty about the quality of workmanship and materials used in external wall build-ups, as well as interior spaces such as ceilings and surface voids.
The project types are varied but most prolific are hospitals and more recently build-to-rent schemes. While different in usage both of these building types share the type of defects most commonly found, being incomplete, substandard or non-compliant passive fire protection and separately envelope construction, particularly cladding including fixing system, insulation type and fire resistance. This may involve a need to verify the presence, location, type and continuity of fire barriers or to check compliance of fire and acoustic sealing within internal voids.
