“Michael Dyson Associates Ltd has unrivalled experience of assessing the structural condition of high-rise blocks; since 1999 we have been providing innovative and cost effective solutions to repair, maintain and expand the life of these structures, improving thermal performance and aesthetics to the benefit of our clients and their residents”.

Our service includes supporting clients in assessing the structural resilience of both large panel systems (LPS) and concrete framed/masonry blocks against accidental loading and effecting  interventions to minimise the risk of disproportionate collapse, this issue having come very much to the fore following the Grenfell tragedy in 2017 and subsequent advice from Government, not least the Building Safety Bill.

Our Structural Engineers and Technicians are skilled and experienced in establishing the construction details and condition of all types of high-rise blocks. We take a managed risk approach to ensure we develop the most appropriate solutions to repair and improve high-rise blocks in technical and financial terms; and we work closely with stakeholders to provide innovative and  sustainable outcomes to improve the operational life, appearance and “street appeal” for this often unattractive element of our clients’ housing stock as well as satisfying increasingly stringent regulation and technically aware residents.

We provide many types of high rise assessment tailored to our clients’ individual needs, including:

  • Construction Audits
  • Structural Surveys
  • Investigation & Reporting of Building Defects
  • Concrete durability assessments
  • LPS assessments relating to the potential for disproportionate collapse
  • Solutions to achieve EWS1 certification
