Independent Reporting and Expert Witness Services

Litigation within the construction and building services industries is a growing trend in Australia.

PJ Wright & Associates has a long-standing and a well-regarded reputation for providing independent reporting, forensic analysis, and investigative reporting. Our clients include architects, builders, insurance companies, legal firms, strata managers, and corporations.

Systemic failures of plumbing and hydraulic service installations result in costly repair and maintenance costs. Where these failures continually reoccur, property managers and insurance companies are required to investigate the failure to establish the probable cause and remedial actions that must be undertaken.

PJ Wright & Associates are conversant with the current legislation, industry research and technologies. We can provide an unbiased and thorough assessment of the installation, the service design and advice on non-compliance issues found and outline options for rectification or replacement.

PJ Wright & Associates has extensive experience in the investigation, assessment, and reporting. This experience and knowledge have allowed us to develop a comprehensive product and resource library that includes a database of current and past standards, codes and legislation applicable to plumbing and hydraulic services.
