Innovation in Dilapidation Services

Innovation in our dilapidation services is a key element that we provide and offer to all of our clients at McDonald Surveys

Innovation helps us to do our work more efficiently, accurately and effectively, which not only contributes to distinguishing our team and offerings as leaders in our field but also support the organisational and operational goals of the businesses we work with. 

Within our dilapidation services, our team is delivering a 92% condition survey completion rate on projects spanning thousands of assets. 

One of the factors which contributes to this success is our investment into proprietary technology, people and processes. This extends to the adoption of third party platforms where appropriate.

Let’s discover how innovation in our dilapidation services is offering an unrivalled quality of service and value to our clients. 


Introducing: Lizard Q technology to innovation in our dilapidation services

LizardQ is a smart and productive solution to high resolution 360°×180° HDR panoramic imaging. It is essentially a robotic camera mount for creating high-resolution panoramic or full spherical HDR images. 

Our dilapidation team is currently completing a large number of Spherical jobs on rail across multiple projects using this technology. 

Through Lizard Q, the team and our clients can enjoy faster, automatic and reliable operation from capture of imagery to stitching and viewing of spherical images (up to 500 megapixel). 


Low cost high value outcomes with Inspective

Inspective™ is our proprietary cloud software solution, developed to leverage our dilapidation surveying methodology and achieve low-cost, high-value outcomes for our clients.

The solution primarily incorporates easy management for community liaison, accurate asset reporting and financial risk mitigation to deliver projects in the most effective manner possible. 

Our success through the utilisation of Inspective has led to McDonald Surveys being nominated for a Property Council Australia Innovation Award.


Integrated Property Visualisation 

Through our relationship with third party vendor Matterport, we are able to offer integrated visualisations through fast and simple 3D site capture resulting in an interactive online experience.

By utilising the 3D site capture, ‘tags’ can be created to identify specific attributes inside and outside built environments in order to offer an enhanced level of visual and factual detail including, but not limited to, areas of potential defect or concern.


Self Survey Approach: Innovation in Dilapidation Services

During the height of the global pandemic in 2020, our dilapidation quickly innovated against the challenges presented within their line of work. This led to the Self Survey Approach which enabled us to provide tuition and support for home occupiers to conduct some of the basic surveying themselves in their home, whilst under supervision at a safe social distance.

See how our Self Survey innovation works. 


A team that goes above and beyond 

Innovation refers to more than just our investment in new technology and systems. It resides first and foremost within the culture of our team members who love problem solving and are always going above & beyond with every client and project. 

This is very evident through the recent feedback survey with our Dilapidation clients, that saw a common theme of how hardworking, diligent, and professional our staff are.
