Defects Diagnosis

Elvet Construction Consultants is a professional chartered building surveying practice able to demonstrate a wealth of knowledge and experience in the application of building pathology and defects diagnosis. We adopt a robust and holistic approach during every survey ensuring that defects are accurately identified and appropriate remedial works prescribed. Incorrect diagnosis can be a costly in terms of both time and money, where abortive works are specified in error, and it is therefore critical that you receive expert advice from professional consultancy with a proven track record. We rely on a hands-on approach to eliminate vague and ambiguous text from our reports, ensuring that you receive clear and concise information which addresses all pertinent issues. Where invasive works or specialist testing is required to provide unequivocal evidence of a defect’s origin, we provide a detailed brief outlining the extent of the works and any associated fees. Moreover, we are experienced in acting as an independent Expert Witness, to represent both claimants and defendants in disputes relating to Housing Disrepair Claims where our professional and unbiased approach has delivered a fair, practical and quick resolution.
