Buildings are a complex series of inter-related elements
Each element has their own behaviours and characteristics when exposed to both external factors and natural degradation.
Often the symptoms of a defect have their roots in a breakdown of one or more of these elements, some of which may be concealed.
Effective defect diagnosis requires a holistic understanding of the way in which buildings are constructed, so that the most effective solution can be arrived at.
