TBE Solutions is a Sydney-based company able to provide solutions for residential and commercial building and engineering issues.

TBE Solutions began as a small contracting business in 2007 and has been gradually expanding its client base to all of New South Wales over the past 15 years.

We manage projects and clients from Newcastle all the way to Wollongong and have handled hundreds of successful projects. The team has a combined experience of 35 years in the building, civil and structural engineering field.


Both old and new buildings can be riddled with difficulties — from common building concerns such as render cracking, concrete spalling and efflorescence, to total dilapidation. On top of providing detailed photographic reports on these and any other building issues, we can also handle Project Management, Tender Management and Heritage Restoration Reports.

We have the resources to create detailed photographic reports with accompanying recommendations for any rectifications. If the defect or fault needs further specialist investigation or testing, the appropriate professional expertise or testing methodology is noted. Our recommendations strictly follow the current Australian Standards and Tolerances Guide which means they are of a court-approved standard. TBE Solutions cover a broad range of project types and can provide you with building solutions for any of the following common issues :

  • Cracking and drummy render
  • Concrete Spalling
  • Waterproofing
  • Structural Repairs
  • Brick Cracking and Deterioration
  • Water Penetration
  • Dampness
  • Mould
  • Efflorescence/calcification
  • Magnesite flooring

Yes we do. A Thermal inspection is an inspection conducted by a qualified electrician with the latest FLIR infrared camera technology on any residential or commercial property. Recently, a thermal imaging survey has become an important part of the Commercial Premises Fire Risk assessment tool now required by many insurance companies. As well as addressing common building concerns in our defect reports, part of our team includes a qualified electrician experienced in thermography. The most important reason to have a thermal inspection done is to ensure fire safety, which reduces insurance premiums and future costs and damages. Electrical distribution systems are the third leading cause of home fires and the source of an estimated 51,000 fires each year, causing 500 deaths and $1.3 billion in property damage. In a thermal inspection we use the latest FLIR infrared camera technology to non-invasively spot ‘hot joints’ invisible to the human eye and compile a photographic report for you. There are many other benefits of thermal imaging including the fact it takes less time, money and mess than invasive procedures, and it is incredibly specific and reliable. Other things a thermographer can detect in buildings include:

  • Electrical faults: discovers oxidation or overheating of high voltage switches and connections, insulator defects, high resistance or corroded connections, internal fuse damage, and internal circuit breaker faults.
  • Mechanical faults: highlights any lubrication issues, misalignments, overheated motors, suspect rollers, overheated pumps and motor axles, and hot bearings.
  • Pipework: identifies leakages in pipes, valves and pumps, insulation breakdowns, and pipe blockage.
  • Other applications:  flare detection, tank level detection, inspection of mould, pests, and rising damp, and checking the temperature distribution in asphalt pavement.
