We have recently carried out a Measured Defect Survey to one of the most Iconic Buildings in Birmingham – Baskerville House.

Baskerville House, completed in 1938, previously called the Civic Centre, is a former civic building in Centenary Square, Birmingham, after serving as offices for the Birmingham City Council, it was extended with additional floors in 2007.

This is the third time our expert Rope Access Building Surveyors have been tasked to undertake a defect survey to all elevations on the building.

A Visual and tactile defect survey, undertaken by experienced industrial rope access surveyors, which should always include using an IRATA Level 3 Supervisor, is one of the safest and cost-effective methods to determine the condition of a building or structure.

Undertaking a Rope Access Measured Defect Survey is only as good as the evidential reports that are undertaken during the survey. Supplying a report which includes photographic evidence can often be a bigger undertaking than carrying out the physical survey itself.
