During the 1950s and 1960s a number of different types of local non-standard properties were used, predominantly by the local authorities. These include concrete frames, steel frames and concrete panels.
There are some designs of non-standard properties that fall into the category ‘designated defective’ under the housing defects legislation.
What we do is undertake an assessment of the structure to identify the type of construction and advise upon the present structural integrity of the load bearing elements and what the likely lifespan of the property is.
Depending on the type of construction the investigation can involve exposure of the load bearing elements.
