Upcycling and Remodelling Commercial Buildings

Upcycling and Remodelling Commercial Buildings … In Episode #24: Broken Buildings Expert, Dimitri Livas explores Upcycling, because… At some point, we must look at existing sites for the purpose of finding space for new projects. And yet the impacts of total knock-down-rebuild-style developments on the environment and the community are huge. Demolishing and rebuilding a new building – no matter how sustainable that building is intended to be upon completion – typically creates far more carbon emissions than upcycling an existing property. Upcycling really is the way to go – designing and building smarter for better long-term outcomes. Sounds too good to be true? With the right team, it’s possible. In fact, people are doing it all over the world. #FixingBrokenBuildings #CreatingHealthyBuildings #BuildingBetterBridges #WeDoStrata

Is your Building a Lemon?

Is your Building a Lemon? … In Episode #21: Broken Buildings Expert, Dimitri Livas explores lemons, that’s right, a lemon, because… Sometimes... life gives you lemons, but I’m not talking about the kind that makes lemonade. I'm talking lemons that put you and your owners committee under massive amounts stress, with never ending complaints, building issues and extra costs causing you headache after headache in remedies and repairs. When a lemon is where you live, or an investment property that you own, the cost of these repairs can skyrocket, leaving you with a property that's dangerous and unsellable if the issues aren't resolved. Now that's not something anyone wants. The good news is, these lemons can be avoided! Strata building specialists, like myself, can quickly and easily spot the warning signs of a lemon. With an action plan, we can identify and fix issues early, which can end up being a whole lot cheaper or can prevent problems altogether. #FixingBrokenBuildings #CreatingHealthyBuildings #BuildingBetterBridges #WeDoStrata

Mould and your Health

Mould, Strata and your Health - In Episode #19: Broken Buildings Expert, Dimitri Livas explores Mould - the mould that lives and grows in our very homes and apartments, cause it’s a problem that is increasingly coming under the radar of health professionals, architects, designers, builders, building regulators, insurance companies, tenants and property owners, and strata managers alike. You name it, anyone who has a vested interest in property right now has mould on their radar, and right now when it comes to mould related issues, we’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg. So, what is mould? And why should we be worried about it? Why is everyone talking about it? and most importantly, what can you do to fix this problem?

Dodgy Building Certifiers

Dodgy Building Certifiers and Inspectors - In Episode #18: Broken Buildings Expert, Dimitri Livas explores Private Building Certifiers – If you’ve kept an eye on the news over the past few years, the topic of dodgy buildings being signed off has been getting a lot of airtime. Some have been cases with high rise complexes being completely evacuated and abandoned due to safety concerns, though this issue has hurt people on projects of all sizes. These ‘private certifiers’ are stuck in the middle of this. When you’ve got someone in charge of keeping things safe, but there’s a bunch of money involved, conflicts of interest pop up heaps. Plus you and I both know that the blokes signing off on nightmare buildings usually get off with just a slap on the wrist.
