- Have inspected and prepared general and expert reports for deteriorating and premature damage in buildings and construction throughout my career.

- Provided approximately 4,000 building inspection reports for all Class buildings and structures.
- Expertise in Class 2 residential strata unit buildings, regarding defective waterproofing, water ingress and spalling concrete issues. Some examples are:
- Reinforcement steel without proper concrete protection to cantilever balconies drip-groove in the soffit;
- Waterproof balconies and flashings at balcony doorways, and roof slab waterproofing;
- Water ingress causing corrosion of internal surfaces and late-life extensive spalling concrete;
- Improper attempts to rectify the ingress of corrosive salts in concrete, allowing spalling concrete to return include outbreaks occurring elsewhere;
- Facade painting that does not have proper prepared concrete surfaces prior to undercoating and apply waterproof protection coats, allow water ingress;
- Protective coating thickness during the application not tested by supervisors;
- Premature failure of waterproofing membrane (both liquid and sheet applied) caused by lack of supervision during the process of the work.
