Former Hospital Chapel, St Albans Benefits from Reinstatement Cost Assessment
The former Hospital Chapel in St Albans was originally built in 1893 with many period features including gothic lancet windows and flint cladding.
Having recently been converted to offices, the current owner requested a Building Reinstatement Cost Assessment. Following RICS codes of practice, this involved detailed inspections of the fabric and fittings to assess the cost of demolition, reconstruction and associated fees.
The assessment was beneficial to the client in obtaining an accurate insurance quotation, which resulted in a significant reduction to the annual bill for buildings and contents cover.
