McWhirter Locke Associates is a firm of Chartered Surveyors and Chartered Building Surveyors, based in London W1.

Defects Diagnosis

At our core we have expert knowledge of both current and historic building technology and an understanding of how buildings were actually built or altered.

As required, we inspect, organise tests, arrange laboratory analysis, undertake research, consider plans and other documents and provide comprehensive reports with recommendations.

Typical defects diagnosis instructions relate to:

  • Defective workmanship
  • Water ingress - leaking or dampness
  • Distortion, cracking or decay
  • Suitability of building fabric for retention or repair
