Buildings and structures are becoming ever more complex, requiring broader based skills and greater knowledge. Materials such as glass, stainless steel and geogrids are commonplace, with more traditional materials (steel, concrete, timber and masonry) being used in more innovative ways.
This guide will benefit engineers and surveyors already familiar with inspecting, appraising and reporting on buildings and associated structures. It provides guidance on overall methods to the approach and reporting of inspections, including the safety and legal considerations surrounding them. Extensive checklists are provided to give on-site support while carrying out an inspection.
Ring-bound for ease of use and printed on durable, water-resistant paper, it's a succinct and user-friendly pocket-sized guide for use before and during an inspection/survey.
