Technical Specification

Remedial Technical Specification Services

A technical specification describes the specific requirements that should be met in order for a building repair project to be completed in accordance with the BCA and Australian Standards. The purpose of a Technical Report is to provide contractors, suppliers, and other stakeholders with information regarding the materials, components, and equipment that will be specified in the project phase.

During the pricing phase, a technical specification can assist designers, contractors, and clients to work together on a cost-effective basis as it ensures that each party knows what is expected in the construction phase. MJ Engineering Projects are able to provide you with extensive technical specifications once an inspection report has been completed.

A formal technical specification would need to be drafted in order to outline all contractual obligations between the contractor and the client, as well as the scope of the work, and minimum requirements that will need to be met. As this step is crucial to ensuring the client’s peace of mind as well as that the work is done to a high standard, it should be carried out to ensure that the client has a worry-free experience.

An engineering technical report should be included with any remedial works project and a detailed scope of work should be documented so that there is no ambiguity regarding the type and quantity of work that is required. If a remedial project commences without the assistance of a remedial engineer and technical specification, there are bound to be disagreements. If you do not have a detailed technical specification, you are more likely to have your project completed at a lesser quality which could potentially result in voiding your warranty and adding additional costs to your project. Hence, prior to finalising the technical specification, it is important to obtain the advice of a remedial consultant engineer that has the necessary expertise to complete the task.

It is important to ensure certain elements of the building work are agreed upon contractually before commencing remedial works. These include:

  1. Detailing of rectification works to ensure accordance with relevant legislation
  2. Contractual obligations required by the principal contractor
  3. Clauses voiding the ability for the principal contractor to claim unwarranted variations
  4. Timing requirements including mobilization and demobilization onsite
