Experience

Michael A Fox Associates has extensive experience in auditing and inspecting buildings around the world, from major sporting stadiums to single houses. In fact, to date, we have conducted in excess of 3,000 surveys and inspections.

This means we can draw on an extensive database of standard details and historical data to gauge how a building fabric should react to weather, environmental pressures and building usage. This, in turn, allows us to provide clients with an accurate forecast of how a building may degrade in the future. Building owners are as a result much better able to make credible and cost-effective longterm decisions.
