1) BCA PERIODIC INSPECTION OF BUILDINGS
All buildings in Singapore, except for detached, semi-detached, terraced or linked houses which are used for residential purposes and temporary buildings, need to be inspected at regular intervals by structural engineers in accordance to Section 28 of the Building Control Act.
Such inspections ensure that structural defects due to lack of maintenance can be detected and rectified early to keep buildings structurally sound for continued occupation. Through such inspections, appropriate measures can be taken to prevent further deterioration.
Besides inspecting your building for structural defects, our structural engineers will be able to assist with the purchase of your building’s structural layout plans from BCA.
2) WATERPROOFING TROUBLESHOOTING & SOLUTIONS
Absolute Inspection offers waterproofing services to solve water leakage issues, including ceiling leakage, leaking bathrooms, balcony, floors, etc. As part of our waterproofing service, we also provide waterproofing consultancy including thermographic scanning, diagnosis and problem solving for water leakage issues. This is often accompanied by site visits and rectification proposals.
3) MOULD INSPECTION & REMEDIATION
With the help of our certified mould inspector & remediator, Absolute Inspection is able to investigate the origin and cause for mould, test for species’ toxicities and provide specialist advice to property owners. In addition to testing and diagnosis, we also provide remediation works for mould-infested areas.
4) DEFECTS INSPECTION FOR NEW, RESALE & RENTAL PROPERTIES
Absolute Inspection conducts comprehensive assessments on properties, including:
- Inspections for newly TOP projects
- Pre-purchase inspections of resale properties
- Post-renovation inspections
- Pre-tenancy and Post-tenancy inspections for rental properties
We will identify defects and unacceptable workmanship finishes within three specific fields – architecture, mechanical (plumbing) and electrical systems. Our findings, which are based on the quality standards adopted by BCA and the industry, will be documented and used to initiate the rectification process by the builder. Once rectification is done, our inspector will inspect your property to ensure all rectification works are done satisfactorily and according to the prevailing quality standards.
