At a public meeting held by residents in our estate in 2011 regarding the presence and indications of pyrite damage, A presentation and question and answer session conducted by Aidan O’Connell was most enlightening.
We later engaged AOCA Ltd. to examine our home. Following a comprehensive examination an indication of the presence of pyrite and other issues with regard to health & safety were revealed and a recommendation that a test bore should be made to confirm a presence of pyrite.
A detailed report (which included photographs) of the exam was later issued to us. On our request a firm of geological surveyors was recommended who completed the test most satisfactorily, sent samples to the UK for analysis and issued a full report of the results which indicated the presence of pyrite in the sample.
In the meantime we have maintained contact with AOCA who have been most helpful in keeping us up to date with developments.
