Building Pathology is the method used to analyse buildings, and in particular building defects, failures and performance. It takes into account various variables including the construction and how materials were used to both establish and rule out the cause and effect.
Building pathologists use a variety of techniques including thermal imaging, ultrasound and vibration assessment techniques so can be called upon for a variety of problems.
