Mike Fox is a Expert Witness/Specialist Roofing Cladding Consultant and Director of MAF Associates Ltd since 2010. He has been employed in the construction industry for 29 years, working with major building materials manufacturers. These roles involved working with specifiers of building materials such as architects, consulting engineers and building surveyors.
Mike also has expertise when he formed Auditing Workmanship and Materials Ltd (AWM). A specialist risk and defect company working within the construction industry; whose main roles are to assist the risk management for insurance companies, main contractors and professional teams.
As the managing director his main role is to work closely with our clients to ensure robust risk and quality management of building installations is carried out. This involves advising building warranty insurers of the risks posed by the product, workmanship and design both during installation and through the buildings life. He also has experience developing cost effective solutions to defects, which occur within the building envelope and to advise insurers the best course of action when developing their conciliation reporting. A major part of this role is to provide the technical support during the loss adjustment period and settlement of claims.
MAF Associates holds specific Expert Witness Professional Indemnity Insurance, together with Public and Employee insurances. MAF Associates also holds insurance backing where invasive works needs to be undertaken during the inspection and investigation phases of the Expert Witness reporting. MAF Associates is fully equipment to access any type of building, this can include mechanical access and rope access techniques and is available a world wide service.
Due to the work and investigations that MAF Associates undertake prior to reporting it is highly unlikely that legal proceeding will follow.
My experience has grown since 2004 and I have undertaken continued professional development to compliment my knowledge of roofing and building systems.
