Insurance- Dimitri Livas - Fixing Broken Buildings #28 Why do we need Insurance… well unfortunately, none of us can tell the future. You see, you never know when there's gonna be a bump in the road that could impact your property, revenue and livelihood. This is one of the reasons we have insurance policies, so if and when something does go wrong, we can rest assured that we’ve covered all our bases. Some claims can be smaller in scale, an isolated incident affecting one property, but insurance can also cover those big-ticket disasters, fires, floods, earthquakes, events that are widespread and often devastating. How can we make sure we’re getting the cover that we need?

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

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.
