Building Site Visits

If you would like us to visit your building whilst it is in progress please let us know. Let us make sure that the Builder is following your plans and isn't making mistakes that could come back to haunt you.

'Walking the plank' Claire checking on progress on a renovation in Jukskei Park, Randburg, an exceptionally cold and rainy day - November 2014

 

 

Double Checking measurements prior to ordering floor slabs....

Floor slab cast - so far the builder is doing a very neat job.

House Atkinson - Roof being installed for a Covered Patio - August/September 2014

Randburg House

Concrete foundations being poured... fortunately the soil conditions were good so a basic trench foundation with no extra steel was OK for the lightweight Covered Patio.  House Atkinson

Lintols propped with a gum pole, a conventional steel prop - 2 across this span would be better, however the gum pole did the job!

Site meeting with the Client, the Builder and a consultant before work on site commenced. - House Atkinson

My Roof and Building Inspector - John giving the builder instructions prior to the start of the main build...

Laying the floor slab, note the conduit installed for the LED lights in the floor.

 Foundations - Brickwork

Plastering started, and the roof is on, note the uneven spacing of the rafters... This is due to lack of supervision on site, however the structure is not unsafe and the rafters will be hidden by fascia board and a gutter.

House Rosenberg - Maropeng, Krugersdorp

Manager's Cottage - Maropeng

Before - the owners had  a land invasion and a house was built on their land and subsequently abandoned.  The decision was made to knock down the derelict structure, reinforce the existing foundations and build again.
