Here’s How One Company’s Ground-Breaking Software Is Changing Dilapidation Surveys
Dilapidation surveys have historically been difficult, time consuming and expensive. They’re an essential part of any major construction project, and yet they often end up being one of the most challenging aspects to do right.
They don’t have to be.
McDonald Surveys have developed a unique solution to this exhaustive process: Inspective™. Inspective is our proprietary cloud software solution. We recognised that there was a need for improved technology in the dilapidation sector, so we took it upon ourselves to meet that need.
What is Inspective?
Inspective is designed to remove manual, paper-based process from dilapidation surveying. Its success led to us being nominated as a finalist for the Property Council Australia Innovation Award in 2018.
Inspective is a proprietary cloud software platform that functions as a management system for pre and post-dilapidation inspections. At its heart, Inspective represents our dedication, passion and innovation. Inspective specifically targets three main areas:
- Community liaison
- Accurate asset reporting
- Financial risk mitigation
Inspective allows surveyors to manage company contact information, manage projects and create a unique stakeholder engagement website for each project. It also offers an offline desktop management tool, which allows surveyors to carry out surveys and securely record the data, which is then uploaded to the project database.
The value of the platform
We recognise the value of technology for our clients. Digital transformation is integral to the future of the surveying sector – and we want to lead the way. Our software is simple, effective and easy-to-use.
At McDonald Surveys, we’re innovators – and we want unquestionable client satisfaction. That’s why we created Inspective. It’s more than just a platform. It represents who we are as an innovative, forward-moving company – and it shows our dedication to always giving the best service. To further ensure client peace of mind, we also provide 3D integrated visualisations through our partner Matterport, which you can read more about here.
Inspective is being used on an ongoing basis for various client projects, including Laing O’Rourke and BGC, for pre and post- dilapidation surveys for the residential housing around the North Link 2 project.
