Project Brief

We were invited to submit a tender for this project and subsequently gained approval.

We undertook the dilapidation works on behalf of the landlord which was managed by a Contract Administrator under a JCT contract. The unit was a typical mid terrace market town shop that had had a large flat roofed extension added on.

Our remit was to strip out all previous tenants fixtures and fittings, undertake remedial works to make the unit weather tight and create a clean bank canvas ready for a prospective new tenant.

An interesting project that took a bit of planning in terms of logistics and waste removal due to its central location.
