Rickard Engineering has been providing engineering diagnostic services in Australia since 1984 and has strong ongoing relationships in the public sector, in particular, the NSW Department of Education.
Every year Rickard Engineering inspects an average of one school every calendar week. Rectification of cracking in
old buildings requires pragmatism combined with a sound understanding of soil mechanics in relation to masonry and timber frame structures.
We also look at issues to do with residential strata when the enquiry is specifically to do with engineering. Such experience is also invaluable when evaluating the cause of building defects which become a matter of a building dispute.
