Understanding the Defect

BRP Engineering

How Clear Is The Issue?

It is not always clear what constitutes a defect. For example, if the specification is not clear, or if the contract does not set out what testing is necessary or what the consequences will be if a test is failed.

What is the Cause?

It is not always clear what has caused a defect. For example, it may be a combination of design and workmanship deficiencies, or an apparent defect in finishes may actually be caused by a structural problem.

How Extensive is the Problem?

The remedial works necessary to correct the defect may be very extensive, complex, costly, time consuming or out of proportion with the nature of the defect.

Whose Fault is it?

It is not always clear where the fault lies. It may lie with more than one party, such as the contractor, consultant, sub-contractor or supplier.

How Extensive is the Work?

The remedial works necessary to correct the defect may be very extensive, complex, costly, time consuming or out of proportion with the nature of the defect.
