Cracks & Movement Engineering

Building Cracks and Movement Solutions

Queensland and New South Wales' cracks and movement engineering experts

When it comes to dealing with cracks in buildings and providing effective movement engineering services, JHA Australia has the expertise you need. Cracks commonly occur in existing buildings and the Australian Standard acknowledges that all buildings may move during their lifetime, resulting in cracks within a dwelling.

However, there’s always the possibility that cracks may be caused by underlying issues with the foundation of the building. To make sure there’s no confusion over the cause of cracking, our structural engineering team at JHA Australia can inspect your property and determine the cause of any problems. This will help to identify any current issues, as well as to safeguard against any future problems that may occur.

To accurately advise our clients on the cause and future potential movement of a dwelling, we’ve developed a system that allows us to produce a detailed report.

JHA engineers go through the following process at your property

  1. We will perform an accurate laser level survey of the dwelling to determine the extent and position of any movement
  2. Based on this information, an accurate engineering report can then be produced, indicating:

a. The cause of the problem
b. Whether the problem is long-term c. If the cracking is going to continue
d. If remedial works are required, what they are (including alternative options) and what the estimated cost of the works would bed. If remedial works are required, what they are (including alternative options) and what is the estimated cost of the works.

Concrete Spalling

Once this information is obtained, it’s much easier to determine the best course of action if buying or selling a home, or if you simply want peace of mind about your property’s safety.

For more than 25 years, JHA Australia has been conducting these surveys and preparing building reports, with many local council and state government departments including the Building Services Authority, recognising our skill and using our services. So, if you need help with cracks and movement engineering, get in touch with our experts today.
