CHAPTER 5.0: CONDITION SURVEY & ANALYSIS5.1 Methodology
There were several methods being used in order to obtain an accurate data of defectanalysis. Usage of equipments is needed during the surveying process, as it helps in obtainingdata.
Figure 18: Flow Chart of the Defect Analysis Process
The surveying process is being done accordingly, stage by stage. Firstly, images of defecton the regarded elements were captured as this helps in giving a better view to analyses. Secondly,defect spots were jotted down on the floor plan, as it shows the exact location of each defect.Samples of defect on certain elements were taken to ensure the main causes of each defectoccurred. At the final stage, the obtained data’s were transferred on measured drawings, elevationsand floor plan, and an analysis of defect report is produced for the usage of clients and futurepurposes. The main purpose in producing an analysis of defect faultiness is to check whether theregarded building is safe for future usage or it needs a refurbishment in terms of maintenance,extensions or restoration so that the length period of the building last long.

Each equipment tools being used has their own function. E.g; Moisture Meter is being usedto check the humidity reading on a specific elements. This will determine whether the humiditycauses the defect failures to occur. Meanwhile, a Vernier Caliper is used to measure the size of crack and depth of crack failures in the specified elements.
5.2 Coding Systems
For professional view and purposes, each defect that is being detected is on each elementwere labeled with a standard coding system. This is for reference usage in the defect checklist, as itis also noted down on the floor plan accordingly on the grid lineage.Example of a defect checklist is being attached below for a clear view;
AT
is the abbreviation of thebuilding, which is
Aula Timur 
, whereas
TMBR
stands for the element involved which is
 
timber 
,
numerical
001
shows the defect number accordingly, and lastly
J3-1
shows the grid line which canbe referred on the floor plan.

Description of defect
Timber was found in the state of decaying. It has becomerotten; as shown white elements which are the fungi and bacteria had appear on the surface of the timber. It has become dirt. As the timber is exposed towards sun andrain, these become an influence for the fungi to grow.
