8M Building Expert Witness and Inspection Service

Transparent Pricing for Inspection and Expert Witness Services

Welcome to 8M Building where expert insight meets dedicated service.

Our initial service, encompassing a thorough site inspection and a comprehensive report, is priced at $400β€”an investment for a half-day increment. We’ve opted for this structure as it accurately reflects the complexities of our work, where traditional hourly rates may fall short, especially considering waiting and travel times.

For the inaugural inspection and report, typically conducted for a progress payment (determinable by an expert’s opinion), we can efficiently cover the essential aspects during this half-day session at your Perth site.

When it comes to crafting a final report for a court or tribunal’s conclusive hearing, the intricacies of the building dispute play a crucial role. This stage usually requires at least a full day, ensuring we delve deep into the specifics and provide a comprehensive document tailored to the nature of your unique case.

At 8M Building, we prioritize transparency, efficiency, and delivering results. Your satisfaction and a thorough understanding of your case are our top priorities.

I was at my wits end dealing with an impossible client avoiding payment, ducking, diving and weaving this went on for months with him claiming one excuse after another to avoid making payment of some substantially well overdue outstanding funds owed. Gordon @ 8m Building came to the rescue with a claim under the CCA 2004 WA legislation and within weeks (it would have been sooner if it weren't for the game playing from client ) we were paid in full. Gordon informed me of a process 'rapid adjudication' that he was very knowledgeable about, from his wealth of experience in construction with steadfast wisdom in the industry and passion to see justice prevail he helped shape, compose and present my case to result favourably. This was due to the ongoing persistence that Gordon is gifted with, the never give up, never say die attitude and willingness he posses to fight like David against Goliath for good to win over evil. You're an absolute Legend thank you Gordon.

Gordon at 8M Building has provided me with extremely valuable support with issues I would otherwise not be able to handle effectively. His wealth of knowledge together with his strong and professional approach have proven invaluable every time. Today it is very difficult to find a person who has a great deal of knowledge, integrity, and passion to assist people to fight for what is fair. When you speak with Gordon you will find all of the above! Thanks again Gordon and I look forward to working with you into the future. Vaughn Roberts

We engaged in Gordon for assistance with an ongoing client refusing to make payment for completed works as per their contract. We found 8M Building to be not only knowledgeable in the construction systems and the legal system but just a great person to speak with and run things through. 8m Building was always willing and able to assist us and has shown a commitment to get the right result from day one. Having 8m Building behind us has really enabled us to feel we can fight for what is ours fair and square. I can't rate 8M building highly enough for what they have done and continue to do for our business. If you are looking for help and don't know where to turn, I recommend 8M Building.

I am a small business owner. Throughout my professional as well as private life I had my share of legal encounters and I only wish I had met Gordon Morton much, much earlier. The man is simply outstanding. In my recent dispute it took him a couple of emails to put some white collar all knowing people straight! Experienced, knowledgeable and unbelievably sharp and to the point. I HIGHLY recommend his service. With Gordon in your corner you can relax.

When a misleading false claim was made against us claiming we were responsible for work that was carried out by others, it was very stressful and such a nightmare. We always take pride in our work and workmanship, the team at Shami Renovations are all equipped with the best tools and materials on the market and always up to the highest standards. We were outraged to have something like this blamed on us! Gordon came on board highly recommended to deal with such building issues. He was really thorough with his research and knew how the building law works, the knowledge he has is absolutely amazing and very very helpful. We really appreciate the time and effort Gordon had put into this issue and now it is finally off our chests.

Had a probate problem with a distant relative putting a caveat on a property. Gordon obtained the facts necessary to have the caveat removed. Great job.
