Project Management 
Definition: ‘Project management is the application of processes, methods, skills, knowledge and experience to achieve specific project objectives according to the project acceptance criteria within agreed parameters. Project management has final deliverables that are constrained to a finite timescale and budget.’* 
Successful project delivery requires attention to detail and effective organisation throughout every part of the process. Understanding all aspects of the project lifecycle comes naturally to our experienced team.

Building Pathology: 
Defect & Accident Investigation 
Building pathology is simply a holistic ‘blinkers removed’ approach to defect and accident investigation. 
Our experience has shown us that this is the only way to ensure the correct determination of causation and thereby enable appropriate advice to be provided. 
We approach all investigative instructions without preconception irrespective of what the immediate evidence may suggest. 
Example 1: 
Spontaneous Glass Panel Failure 
Fire damper settings on a damper 35m away from the point of failure were proven to be the cause of three separate spontaneous toughened glass panel failures, each suspended overhead and measuring 1.8 x 0.9m 
Initial causation suspected as NiS inclusion. 
Example 2: 
Substrate Failure 
A length of stainless steel angle measuring 1800x45x45mm, subsequently found to weigh 3.1kg had fallen approximately 15m from the escalator atrium onto our Clients sales area during trading hours. 
Reports from the store and attending contractor were that the angle was fixed in place only with velcro and that the velcro had failed. 
Our subsequent investigations confirmed causation as substrate failure, the velcro had performed as the designer and manufacturer intended however this had been applied to a newly painted surface.
