Due to delays in the progress of the claim, we were appointed by the homeowner to carry out ground investigations and prepare a scheme for remedial underpinning and superstructure repair works. A full specification was prepared incorporating a mass concrete underpinning scheme within the basement, structural repair works to all floors to the property and partial re-building of the front brickwork. The scheme was complicated by the discovery of a previously failed piled underpinning scheme which had to be isolated from the newly installed underpinning.

 

The homeowner appointed an interior designer and additional works outside of the insurance claim were arranged. We were appointed to coordinate these works alongside the insurance claim and provide full cost management services. We undertook interim site visits and certified all works and payments. The project was completed to budget and the finished works were complimented by the homeowner.
