Basements. Cellars. Buried structures. There’s nothing worse than having the ground work team arrive on site on a tight programme and immediately hit something unforeseen – simply because the demolition people didn’t care enough or fully adhere to their scope of works. Now you’re facing unplanned expense, costly delays, and negotiations with a contractor who’s moved on.
Our background in both building and civil engineering means that you can rely on our experience to take care of every aspect of your ground work.
It’s amazing how often this happens. It always means extra unnecessary work and cost. Yet the answer is so simple, if the plumbing and heating requirements can be properly anticipated and planned for at the ground work stage.
It happens all too often. The contractor may even have gone out of business in the time that’s elapsed between the original ground work and the estates completion stage. Worse still, there may not be enough retention money left in the remedials pot to cover the cost of all the work that needs to be done. As usual it’s your customer care coordinator who gets the flak. And the adoption process is held up until the remedials are complete.
It’s just as annoying when they’re late. Or when they arrive in scruffy clothes with no ID. Or when the wrong trade turns up - like a plumber for a boiler problem. Or when they don’t treat your customer or their property with the courtesy and respect that matter so much to your reputation.
