According to Bruce Battersby, Remedial Works Manager at Advanced Buildings Queensland Division of Remediation and Assets, the answer is ‘a lot’!
Advanced Buildings (Qld) established this specialist division around 6 years ago to respond to the need for a more professional approach to building restoration and remediation in the insurance industry.
The division is made up of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals including: remediation specialists, quantity surveyors, project managers, contract administrators, loss adjusters, restoration technicians, and tertiary-qualified Builders.
According to Bruce:
“Our experienced team provides a broad spectrum of experience across many facets of the construction industry, particularly in the fields of Remediation, Restoration and Heritage.
“This sets us apart from the typical new-build construction companies who often don’t have the technical expertise, knowledge or experience in the remediation of existing concrete and steel structures”.
Bruce is supported by Peter Innes, the company’s Site Manager.
“Over the years, we’ve built-up serious expertise in the areas of asset maintenance advice, condition and defects audits and dilapidation surveys. We’ve developed thorough and accurate technical and options reports for clients so they can effectively plan the maintenance expenditure on their buildings over future years. This helps owners and managers protect and maintain these key assets”, said Peter.
“Advanced Building’s expertise also lies in our ability to work with external professionals such as remediation engineers, architects and specialist consultants. We collaborate closely with them to provide cost-effective solutions for our clients. We carefully evaluate the products we use, our repair methodologies, materials handling and access to make sure we meet our clients’ budget”.
