MCS investigates problems with swimming pools and spas many of which are fibreglass lined and exhibit unique problems from cracking to hydrostatic uplift. The underlying causes are highlighted together with remediation recommendations.

Technical Information

MCS Reports are provided in an easy to understand format and typically identify damage, cause and effect, cost effective remediation and dissected Scopes of Work that identify event related damage separately from pre-existing damage or non-event related causes.

MCS also undertakes post-repair inspections to confirm repairs have been completed in compliance with the NCC (National Construction Code) and relevant Australian Standards.

MCS offers desktop reviews, audits, review and analysis of quotations and invoices as well as inspections and reporting on incomplete or disputed works.
