Noel Jellyman Building Consultants Limited brings a wide range of technical, managerial and practical skills to your project.
The benefits we bring to your project include –
- Open on-going communication
- Good working relationships
- Clear goal setting
- Cost effective and expert time management
- Cost control
- Clear Scope of Works
- Appropriate selection of the Team
- Negotiation skills
- High quality management
Obtaining professional advice is well worthwhile and offers significant benefits over dealing with sub-contractors directly. (For example, making the decision on whether it is appropriate to carry out a targeted repair or whether a re-clad of the building is more appropriate?)
A professional approach is to first have a thorough assessment of the building carried out, a detailed scope of works and a quantity survey including an estimate of costs prepared. This is followed with a project plan including formal documentation to form the basis of the contract, a professional procurement process, site observations, financial management and finally a completion process.
The extent and size of the project will go some way to determine the degree to which experts need to be involved. Projects are not “One size fits all.” Noel Jellyman Building Consultants Limited will tailor its services to meet the needs specific to each individual project.
Notice to Fix and Certificates of Acceptance
This can occur when work that required a Building Consent has been carried out without one, or alternatively, work has not been carried out in accordance with the Building Consent.
A Certificate of Acceptance provides a limited assurance in certain circumstances that Council has inspected the non-consented building work or work undertaken urgently, or is satisfied on reasonable grounds that building works comply with the Building Code.
Noel Jellyman Building Consultants Limited assists home and building owners by analysing the particular breach of the Building Act 2004, putting together solutions, reports and documents to rectify the breach, and enables application for the Certificate of Acceptance.
Pre-Purchasing Inspections and Reports
A pre-purchase inspection followed with a comprehensive report helps to ensures you are making an informed decision.
Noel Jellyman Building Consultants Limited, armed with Professional Indemnity Insurance, has over 40 years building industry experience. Our Pre-Purchase Building Report will ensure you are confidently able to purchase a building fully aware of the condition of that building.
We operate anywhere in the Waikato. Contact Noel Jellyman today – and you will be provided with an inspection and comprehensive report.
Weather Tightness / Exterior Claddings Assessment and Report
The introduction of untreated timber, poor or non-existent flashing details, monolithic cladding systems with no cavity and drainage behind them, are but a few of the causes of weather tightness problems which became apparent.
These leaking buildings require recladding (as a general rule of thumb) in order to properly address all the issues. As the problem was identified and became more published, these types of buildings carried a stigma and the perception of the market was that they had a lower value. Alternatively, owners have needed to tackle the issues and remediate the house.
The issues surrounding remedial work on leaky buildings are complex; they require careful consideration and planning along with a comprehensive record of the issues.
Noel Jellyman Building Consultants Limited, over the past decade, have assisted many home and building owners through the processes required to remediate their buildings. The processes begin with a full visual inspection using non-invasive moisture metres, invasive testing when deemed necessary, as well as timber testing, photographic evidence and a comprehensive report.
