Business Strategy

TEG Consulting

was able to provide resources to undertake 3 to 4 assessments today comfortably; reports were issued within 4 days of inspection.

 

TEG Consulting has substantial experience from dealing with clients, project managers and contractors as well as the underwriters. In order to ensure that consistency and clarity was maintained in our work we sort clarification on the levels of damage and the applied ruling as to what would be covered. We in addition sort technical advice from Building Suppliers on technical bulletins relating to their projects:

  • Bluescope Steel – colorbond sheeting
  • CSR – FC sheet

 

Project Outcomes

TEG Consulting established a database where client information was able to be easily found and could be filtered to provide specific reports relating to damage assessments. TEG Consulting noted that in a number of cases poor maintenance, and workmanship did contribute to damage sustained to structures.

 

As a consequence TEG Consulting Engineers is advocating the benefits of clients undertaking engineering assessments of their buildings to ensure that the building frame meets requirements for integrity, condition and compliance with construction standards and codes. The report would be accompanied by a certification by TEG Consulting that the building meets compliance which would therefore reduce risk to the underwriter. It is envisaged that the report would be valid for between 5 and 10 years. The report would include a scope of work of any items to be addressed. In which case an additional visit would be undertaken to inspect works and provide certification that the works have been completed.
