Following a fire at the property, Keegans were originally involved with making safe and demolishing the damaged structure. Further to this Keegans were then instructed to prepare a specification of works, obtain tenders and then to administer the works on site for the rebuilding of 19no. flats with the refurbishment of a further 3no. flats. These are to be constructed as per the original design (prior to fire damage) allowing for all relevant changes necessary to comply with the current Building Regulations.
Keegans prepared the specification and appointed a contractor via a competitive tender. Prior to works commencing on site there was a high level of vandalism to the property so as part of the works it was necessary to ensure the required security was in place to protect new works on site.
The works involved the erection of part of the 3 and all of the 4 storey flats, constructed in timber framework with infill brick and block panels. To the existing properties works were also required for the decontamination of mould growth under controlled conditions.
