Our main objective as a specialist in water and rain leaks is to test and analyse water intruders for commercial and residential buildings. 

We are an independent third party testing firm that conducts several different water tests to simulate leaks in floors, walls, shopfront glazing, roof decks, building envelopes, grading, fenestration items and much more. These tests include the AAMA 501, AAMA 502 and ASTM tests, such as the E1105 tests.






The history of Rommel

Rommel Ltd (Rommel) is a multi-faceted consulting company that specialises in the non-destructive identification, investigation and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial , industrial and institutional building.

Rommel was founded in 2018 on the premise that New Zealand can do better. The reports of the state of New Zealand housing stock in terms of quality, affordability, and quality thrust the founders’ skills into high demand as they delivered innovative solutions to complex problems in a simple way. The founders believed NZ can build better buildings, can use better engineering tools, can be a world leader in building design. To do this, we need more expertise than just engineers, which is why our team includes architects, engineers, tradesmen, draftsmen and others that give us a well-rounded knowledge base to draw from.

Rommel soon became focused after a few years on identifying the cause and origin of the observed water intrusions using thermography equipment. In 2019 we started providing diagnostic services for water intrusion, using advanced spray-rack equipment designed to meet ASTM & AAMA testing requirements. By 2020, we rapidly became market leader in diagnostic services for water intrusion.
