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.
But there is an easy answer. By involving us early at the ground work stage, you can be sure of our long term commitment to your development. We can help you to keep costs down and avoid many of the problems. We take responsibility for our workmanship, and simply put right without argument anything that’s down to us.
Whether it’s repairing road surfacing or footpaths, replacing kerbs or pavings, or attending to any issues with sewers, drainage systems or manholes, we can help you to get through the pre-adoption process more quickly and cost-effectively.
This can include administrative tasks such as road opening licences, liaising and negotiating with Clerks of Works to meet on site, understand the work involved and prepare estimates. We’ll also work hard on your behalf to reduce the scope and cost of the remedials for which you’re responsible.
