Large portfolio inspection of mixed properties in Brighton. Inspected on electric bikes to quickly travel to numerous sites.
Posted: Tuesday March 21, 2023
Dabinett wheeled out their new electric bikes to get around Brighton to complete surveys on a large portfolio of mixed buildings.
Brighton offers some challenges, aside from the contours of the town, there is for instance the widespread use of bungaroosh. A mix of lime mortar and a combination of various materials. The materials ranged from pieces of brick, shells, pebbles to flint.
Additionally there is also the quite regular use of mathematical tiles, which mimic brickwork.
Carrying out research of the area was important. This gave an insight of what defects, which may be of a minor nature in masonry construction, could pose a significant structural risk in bungaroosh.
The inspections involved more than forty properties, each requiring detailed building surveys. The surveys identified the structural condition, advised on the habitable conditions and made recommendations for works, together with budget costs. Insurance assessments were also undertaken, providing the construction costs for accurately ensuring appropriate insurance cover.
If you are looking at investing in a large portfolio of properties Dabinett have great experience in inspecting quickly, in a detailed manner, to minimise risk and complete in a fraction of the time of many competitors.
Inspections can be carried out for acquisitions, or for owners to understand the condition of their properties and protect themselves.
