Investigation is an important tool used to ensure the safety of building structures. Community concern regarding safety has increased following publicity surrounding the issues with construction of buildings such as Opal Towers and Mascot Towers. Our presenters will outline the benefits of using investigation techniques to achieve the maximum safety of buildings and structures. A number of case studies will be used to demonstrate the investigation tools used during the rectification process and the benefits they bring.
