A number of very hazardous and costly factors related to buildings, roofs, structures and properties have been identified and warned about repeatedly. 9
11 DESPITE THE PRESENCE OF REGULAR FIRE CONSULTANT INSPECTIONS, COMPLIANCE CERTIFICATES, FIRE EXTINGUISHERS ETC. MOST BUILDINGS CONTAIN UNSEEN VERY HIGH RISKS OF MAJOR FIRES AND BURNOUTS!
Many Billions of Rands are being lost by corrosion and weathering losses and damages 12
Dangerously and Expensively FAILED box gutter !!! This was caused by SUBSTANDARD repair work !!! 14
Risk of collapsing buildings and roofs due to illegally non-compliant structures 15
Severe risks to life and health, due to the widespread use of biohazardous asbestos… 16
As well as the extensive presence in many buildings of very flammable insulating and other materials that burn very aggressively and spread major fires rapidly!! 17
And which in many cases can release life threatening quantities of deadly hydrogen-cyanide gas!!! 18
This very common roof and building insulating foam has killed hundreds of workers… 19
Other very dangerous elements found to be very common in buildings include: Overlooked legal transgressions which could result in prosecution, fines and jail sentences !! 20
Roofs (old and new), being ripped off in high winds!! 21
Extensive leaking and flooding of buildings and properties 22
Essential roof and building remedial and maintenance skills have long since declined to the point where hiring non professionally-screened contractors can be a major disaster and risk/loss factor in itself! 23
These very hazardous elements are very frequently found in roofs and buildings that have been regularly inspected and signed- off by “experts” as allegedly safe and legally compliant. 24
26 The Star “The extreme costs, inconveniences, safety (issues), risks, and other liabilities associated with long-term … neglect and a “false economy” roof (and building) maintenance policy, are no longer acceptable… This situation has, from a company profitability and sustainability point of view, reached critical proportions”. ARTF quote from the “The Star” newspaper, front page, Property Section – 16 June 2008
Extensive senior level research has also shown that the majority of solutions being offered on the market place are in fact NOT resolving these risks, losses and problems safely, affordably and sustainably. 28
29 DANGEROUSLY FAILED AND COLLAPSED ROOF AND STRUCTURE, FROM NEGLECT AND PATCH -FIXING!
As we technologically advance so do the solutions needed to fully resolve those problems. A quick-fix is just that – a Quick fix. Then that Quick-fix becomes the next immediate serious and very costly problem to resolve. Problems are only resolved by in-depth investigations to get the exact solution to that specific problem and then ensuring that the exact solution is correctly and fully applied. 30
32 THIS VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION HAS BECOME GREATLY WORSENED BY LONGTERM SPIRALING BUILDING MATERIAL, CONTRACTING AND ENGINEERING COSTS – TO THE POINT WHERE MOST COMPANIES CANNOT AFFORD TO CORRECTLY REPAIR AND MAINTAIN THEIR ROOFS AND BUILDINGS – BUT TO NEGLECT OR PATCH FIX THESE PROPERTIES WILL BECOME EVEN MORE UNAFFORDABLE AND PROBLEMATIC IN THE END! THIS SEEMS TO CREATE AN UNSOLVABLE CRISIS FOR A GREAT MANY COMPANIES TODAY, IN THESE HARD ECONOMIC TIMES!
