GHPC Group Ltd worked on behalf of a national Housebuilder to project manage a portfolio of seasonal defects claims relating mainly to water ingress across around 14 separate developments.
On the Client’s behalf, GHPC Group Ltd independently project managed the programme of remedial works to each property including acting as CDM Co-ordinator, assessing each property individually, recording defects identified, instructing contractors, specifying remedial works required, arranging access and co-ordinating all liaison between homeowners and contractors. Homeowners remained in-situ for all works, so access and works were co-ordinated around their availability and requirements.
During the works themselves, GHPC was on-site on a daily basis to monitor works and quality to every property, assess further damage as it was identified once certain areas had been opened up, recording works carried out and any issues encountered. Finally, GHPC would sign off works when satisfactory and report progress & completions to the Client on a regular basis.
The project at Basingstoke is one of a sample of the 14 projects worked on across Kent, London, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. This development was a mix of terraced, detached and semi-detached 2 and 3 storey houses of various sizes, all of traditional brick and block cavity wall construction, built within the last ten years.
Around 27 properties were suffering from water ingress caused by a range of problems including defective cavity trays and flashings, causing damage to walls, ceilings, fixtures and fittings and some flooring.
Defects Claims Services Overview
We have provided some examples of projects we have been involved with from a Defects Analysis and Claims Management perspective.
Full details of these projects cannot be provided due to the sensitive nature of the projects, which by their very nature involve remedial work to defective structures under insurance claims.
