by Todd Porter

When your current or potential clients visit your premises, they would really rather not see building faults.

When you cast a discerning eye over your office, do any problems or imperfections arise? Many faults are simple to correct and attention to detail will almost always impact positively on your business. Any issues concerning OH & S should be directly dealt with, and many faults are the result of deferred maintenance.

Make use of this quick checklist below, and get relief from the stress and worry after their correction from the experts, Built Rite Constructions:

Exterior Surfaces - Any holes, breaks, deterioration, missing or unsecured sections?

Plumbing System

OH & S
Your are required by OH& S regulations to maintain your working areas so that they are free of defects and are safe for your employees and any visitors or contractors.

Some building repairs require permits, such as structural repairs or plumbing , electrical , and mechanical installations.

Information about which repairs require a permit is available from our office.

Remember, when something looks like an amateur did it, that usually means that's exactly what happened. When dodgy workmanship is present, the materials are often improper for the intended purpose or of cheap or poor quality.

Preventative building maintenance keeps your working areas safe for your employees, visitors and impresses potential clients when they come to visit.

By the way, this list is not complete, other issues may need your attention.
