CASE STUDY

  • Initial Contract Value: £82,063.12

  • Final Account Value: £86,000

  • Project Duration: 8 weeks

  • Actual Duration: 10 weeks

The main focus of the work at Frognal Way was the conservation of a retaining wall, which was failing as a result of too much pressure from soil build-up and four large oak trees. The cause of the emerging cracks and fractures was determined to be from the movement of heavy plant machinery at a residential redevelopment project nearby.

On behalf of the London Borough of Camden, HardingBond was appointed to manage the scheme, including:

    •    - Assessing and appointing an engineer

    •    - Preparing budget costings

    •    - Specifying, tendering and completing all necessary administration of a building contract

    •    - Construction and Design Management

 

The project involved planning works around the underlying gas, water, electric and telecom services in the development area. This dramatically altered the programme of works and, ultimately, the entire project. Additional obstacles presented themselves in the form of a buried live manhole and a gas main that were not recorded, all of which required further design solutions to ensure they remained active and were not compromised by the works.

This is just one example of what our team here at HardingBond Property Consultants are capable of producing. Our goal is to work with our clients providing a flawless service, in order to achieve their ultimate goals during their project. We ensure that each aspect of the project is co-ordinated, and we produce a strict programme of works for each project we attend.

Whether it be Defect Analysis, Feasibility Studies, or full-blown Project Management and Monitoring, our team at HardingBond Property Consultants will use our wealth of experience combined with our innovation and ingenuity to bring your ideas and dreams into reality.
