Residential surveyors are generally well versed in the problems of Victorian construction and all surveyors know everything they think they need to know about ‘modern construction’. Generally ‘modern’ is considered to start around 1960.
Building maintenance activities, including repairs, account for 42% of construction-related deaths and serious injuries according to past HSE statistics. With heritage buildings having a significant amount of roofing and external work, there's greater risk of falls from height and precarious environments.
