With experience across the full breadth of Building Consultancy and Project Management services we pride ourselves on our proactive and pragmatic approach to help deliver solutions.

We offer a number of core services to our clients although we are able to offer much more based on the unique skill sets and experience across the team. For any Building Consultancy related or Project Management advice, do please call us.

We act as Project Managers on construction projects of all types. We manage extensions, refurbishment, repair and new build construction projects. We are able to simplify the procurement process for you, assisting with every stage of the project, from inception to handover. By drawing on our extensive knowledge, we are able to appoint suitable consultant teams on your behalf, selected on a project by project basis. Our proactive approach and solution based advice will maximise the chances of successful completion. The key to our success lies in being able to communicate clearly with clients, design teams, contractors and end users.

We have a specialist Party Wall team who act for owners who are either wishing to carry out work or are an Adjoining Owner who will be affected by a building project. Working on party wall issues across London and the UK, we act as the Building Owner’s Surveyor, Adjoining Owner’s Surveyor or often on an ‘Agreed Surveyor’ basis.

We review proposals at an early stage and offer advice on how to ensure compliance with the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. Depending upon the nature of our role, we can identify Owners who require Notices, progress discussion with Adjoining Owners and their appointed Surveyors both informally and formally, prepare Schedules of Condition, put Awards in place and resolve disputes and carry out final inspections to discharge the liability under any Awards.

Party Wall etc. Act 1996

The Party Wall Etc. Act 1996 (the Act) is designed to facilitate building works to Party Walls and major works positioned closely to adjoining buildings. The Act only applies to England and Wales and affects all building types. The Act is intended to enable development in a timely manner whilst protecting neighbours (Adjoining Owners) and occupiers.

In addition to being RICS regulated, we are members of the Pyramus and Thisbe Club and the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors, the principal organisations for party wall related matters. A selection of some of our recent instructions as well as our explanatory guides and recent case law summary can be found below.

How to Comply with the Party Wall Act

In addition to preparing interim and terminal Schedules of dilapidations and repair notices, we are retained by numerous blue chip and institutional funds to prepare Schedules of Condition and projected dilapidations reviews to allow accurate assessments of likely dilapidations liability prior to lease expiry.

We provide comprehensive Feasibility advice as early as possible, organising design team members, producing designs, outline cost plans and providing clear advice on any potential risks. We aim to provide reports that identify any potential risks and give you the information needed to progress the project and / or seek funding for the work.

We monitor Construction Projects to give project funders and end users peace of mind and reassurance that work is carried correctly, within budget and to ensure that quality standards are maintained. We begin by advising on the adequacy of development briefs, specifications, consultant team appointments, warranties and pertinent legal documents. We aim to identify any development risks for you as early as possible, minimising risk and ensuring that you are aware of progress throughout.
