Subsidence and Settlement: Getting it Right Short course


Property professionals need to be able to correctly diagnose and remedy the causes of subsidence and settlement – so staying up-to-date with current best practice is of the utmost importance.

On this short course, you'll learn about damage to buildings resulting from movement. This important issue remains one of the principal problems affecting buildings, but it's commonly misunderstood, with a history of misdiagnosis and implementation of excessive or inappropriate remediation works.
