While circumstances such as age and environment do affect how often a building should be inspected, we recommend that strata managers have their buildings inspected at least once every five years to ensure that they are in a sound and liveable condition.
Age plays a huge part in determining how often a strata building should be inspected. Both newly built and older buildings should be assessed regularly. Newer buildings should be inspected regularly to ensure that any defects identified can be rectified as early on as possible and similarly older buildings, which are prone to longer term deterioration issues should be inspected regularly to ensure that material failures do not result in the creation of hazardous environments. Early detection of any condition affecting the structure or amenity of the building is developing, allows an engineer to assess and recommend measures to rectify and conserve the building element.
Heritage buildings are of particular interest with regard to regular assessments and Bellmont are highly skilled in this field having worked on some of Sydney’s most prestigious Heritage structures.
If you are a manager or owner who wishes to have your building inspected by a professional, the team at BellMont would be more than happy to assist! You can get in contact with us below.
