Building pathology is the study of a building with the intent of determining any defects it may contain and, more importantly, the causes and consequences associated with such issues. After defects have been identified, solutions can be developed and administered in order to extend the life of the building.
Effective building pathology relies not only on an accurate and knowledgeable assesment of the building, its flaws and strengths, and its intended use, but also on the development of creative, collaborative solutions to discovered problems and effective treatment and supervision of the changes that need to be made. Proper pathology will help save time and money since it ensures that a building’s space and resources can be maximized and that existing structures can be used into the future, all without the commitment of expansions or new buildings.
