Guarantee structural security
Managing costs is crucial to ensure the profitability of construction projects. With the rate of return in the construction industry averaging between one and three percent per development, the two percent estimated cost of rectifying defects can often wipe out any potential returns on investment.
Construction defects can also lead to legal disputes and project delays, resulting in considerable financial losses for developers and investors. Consequently, paying close attention to the civil and structural engineering services of your assets is vital for their sustained future value.
Civil and structural engineering services are two separate disciplines. Whereas civil engineering tends to focus on the built environment such as buildings and bridges, structural engineering focusses more on designing and maintaining the structures and frameworks within such constructions.
As every building requires meticulous and multidisciplinary technical know-how to fulfil various financial and legal requirements, third-party civil and structural services can prove incredibly beneficial for your business.
Such third-party services are also essential when objective and independent expertise is required during dispute cases and with regards to documentation support for bills of quantities.
Independent third-party expertise can help ensure that a building stands the tests of time, weather and utilisation. A multitude of standards for construction and building projects have emerged over the past few decades covering areas such as structural stability, structural safety, fire protection, as well as a building’s technical installations.
These standards can help developers create safer and more reliable structures and environments for their occupants. Third-party testing and analyses according to these standards can also minimise damage rectification costs, extend the life of a structure and increase its value.
