Patrick Ryan Associates has been carrying out facade and envelope surveys since the start of the company in 1998. Often these surveys are for other professionals, where we work as part of a professional team whether it be in regard to sale of the building, purchase of the building, determining dilapidations at the end of the lease, or planned maintenance. We are proud of our record in this area and strive for a very high standard in our written reports. Our aim is to make the technical content of our reports clear and easily understood to those who are non-technical and pass on the essential information in an intelligent way.
Fire safety of cladding is of great concern to building owners and occupiers. We work closely with fire safety consultants to ensure the safety those who work and live within buildings with external cladding. We also offer fire testing of external cladding materials and systems as well offering assessment of existing facades.
We also investigate facade and cladding defects including leaking facades & overhead glazing, structural fixing problems, issues with coatings and corrosion as well as other building performance issues.
