Building Failures and Leaky Buildings

Buildings fail for a multitude of unexpected reasons.
Failures may involve:

• Design 
• Foundations 
• Basement waterproofing 
• Flooring 
• Uncontrolled differential movement
• Claddings 
• Roof membranes 
• Building products 
• Noise control
• Leaks

Architect Associates can become involved in resolving building failure problems at any stage -- from analysing what went wrong... to rectification... right through to litigation. We bring long practical experience, industry overview and lateral thinking to the process.

Graham Strez understands leaky buildings. He has provided advice to DBH/BRANZ on the remediation design process for leaky buildings.
