Dilap – or dilapidation reports are special purpose property assessment reports undertaken to provide a visual assessment of the existing condition of the surrounding buildings and structures before the commencement of a demolition, construction, or development of an adjacent new store/building/infrastructure project.

We at PQI Group undertake these reports prior to any demolition or construction.

All prominent defects in the form of cracks, settlement, movement, water seepage, spalling concrete, distortion, subsidence and other building defects are recorded and can serve as proof for damage and liabilities as a result of the new construction works.

A post construction survey is undertaken, and a building inspection and comparison will be made with the Dilap report to accurately ascertain what if any building issues may have arisen as a result of the neighboring construction.
