  • Online CPD, .

  • The CPD will examine the role of Building Surveyors in the identification and remedying of building defects. We will look at the role of the building surveyors in the context of team due diligence inspections and how our experience we can add value to the team.

    We will look briefly at BRE Digest 268 which deals will defects in low rise buildings and look at the contributing factors and common failures identified in the digest.
    Variables involved in the building process will be examined to illustrate their impact on building performance.

    The three main causes of building defects will be looked at together with other common factors that can lead to the occurrence of defects.

    Noels presentation will set out to give an entry level understanding of issues involved and will present some recent cases and examples of the more common occurring building defects.
