Heading & Associates have extensive experience in Dilapidation Surveying.

The importance of a dilapidation survey is often underestimated during the initial stages of a construction project.  A comprehensive record of the existing condition of adjoining structures, buildings, roadways, paths and other infrastructure can save thousands of dollars in potential damages liability. Often the existence of a dilapidation survey is sufficient to ward off opportunistic claims.


Our dilapidation surveys include high-resolution digital photographs, video and an exhaustive report which together provide a benchmark or reference point for determining whether defects resulted from construction activities or existed prior to commencement.


Heading & Associates have provided dilapidation surveys for the following projects:


  • Southbank Cultural Precinct Redevelopment at Hamer Hall
  • Metropolitan Remand Centre, Deer Park
  • City West Police Complex, Melbourne
  • Melbourne Underground Rail Loop tunnels
  • Various residential projects


Dilapidation surveys can be undertaken for any structure or property including but not limited to:


  • High-rise & commercial buildings
  • Public utilities
  • Educational facilities
  • Historic and heritage listed properties Infrastructure.
