The project involved the complete demolition of a steel frame block and the re-development of the site with a three-story block of apartments including a basement for underground car parking. The site was adjoined on three sides by buildings requiring consent under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 (the Act).
Apart from the potential damage to their own properties the adjoining owners were very concerned about noise and vibration.
Scott Surveying was commissioned by the Developer to administer his obligations under the Act and to advise on associated boundary matters.
Ensuring both building and adjoining owners discharged their statutory duties under the terms of The Party Wall etc. Act 1996.
Checking that suitable methods were adopted in order that the stability of the adjoining properties was always maintained throughout the re-development and that any disturbance and inconvenience to the adjoining owners was kept to a minimum.
Ensuring that the proposals were designed and implemented in a manner that the future redevelopment of the adjoining properties would in no way be prejudiced.
