Major Building Works
Major Building Works is the coordinating the delivery of a combination of complex services provided by a contractor to maintain, refurbish and repair the exterior of any building, and in so doing protect the asset value. When considering Major Work to be carried out on the exterior of a building it is important, indeed vital, that the contractor possesses the necessary multi-discipline skills, experience and expertise and credentials to carry out the required work efficiently and cost effectively.
We have the inhouse specialisms and experience that can tackle any issue. When we are called to complete a Major Building Works project, we work in specialist teams on a project to address all issues in one go. No matter the substrate or specification, our team is agile and capable in completing the project to the highest standards.
Our Major Building Works Service
If it’s the exterior of a building that needs major works refurbishment, we have got the inhouse specialisms and experience that can tackle any issue. For a number of clients, every five years we move in several teams to address all issues in one go. We coordinate who goes in and when for best efficiency, saving time and budget. All major works are always conducted under the direction of a building surveyor who ensures the work is specified and completed correctly. Our refurbishment experience for clients is centred in conurbations and recent projects have been mainly in London, and within the M25 and in Bournemouth.
When assessing any Major Building works there is not, a standard formula as the state of any building differs one to the next and the refurbishment requirements are determined by the survey and so the services offered are bespoke.
We work closely with a surveyor, jointly assessing the requirements, methodology and processes from which a scope of works is agreed with the client, to deliver a major works service that is cost effective and exceeds the client’s expectations. To assist the Surveyor, we equip our Technicians with camera helmets with a link to a screen at ground level, such that by using rope access and radio contact between the operative and the surveyor, detailed inspection and survey can be conducted efficiently.
As our Technicians are IRATA Certified combined with our patented equipment we can carry out specialised services on any height of building without the need for scaffolding.
Eliminating the need for scaffolding saves tens of thousands of Pounds and saves time on any project.
In addition, it minimises disruption to both building occupants and the surrounding community, in fact in certain building locations scaffolding would be impossible either because of busy thorough fares or proximity to other buildings.
We undertake continual training for our operatives with special emphasis on safety issues which is always at the heart of our Staff Development programme.
