CDM – Co-ordination Services

The aim of the CDM regulations is to integrate health, safety and welfare into the management of all construction projects and to encourage everyone involved to work together as an integrated team to improve planning and management of projects from inception. Also to Identify hazards early so that they can be eliminated or reduced at design and planning stages and the remaining risks can be properly managed. More importantly encourage communication, co-operation and co-ordination within the project participants.

Unless they are a domestic client, anyone having construction or building work carried out has legal duties under the Construction Design & Management Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007).

Party Wall Matters

Hamond Projects provides the necessary reassurance that you are complying with the Party Wall Act, 1996, or advise you if the Act is not being complied with.

When does the Party Wall Act apply? The Party Wall Act 1996 may apply if you intend to carry out building work which involves:

  • work on an existing wall shared with another property
  • building on the boundary with a neighbouring property
  • excavating within prescribed distances of a neighbouring building.

If you are carrying out work of the above nature you must find out whether or not that work falls within the requirements of the Act. If it does you must notify your neighbour. If you are a neighbour who has not been notified of such works you may want to ensure your property is properly protected in accordance with the requirements of the Act.

Problems encountered with party walls

Problems often arise where excavations are carried out without due regard of a neighbouring building. Excavation work includes installing piles as well as digging holes. If you are planning building work that may fall within the Party Wall Act it is essential that you take advice at an early stage of design. Failure to take appropriate action can lead to frustrating and costly delays.

Hamond projects are capable of providing a comprehensive service from initial assessment at design stage, including technical advice on Party Structure works. As independent specialists we are able to monitor the works on site for compliance with the Act and any Awards. This can be undertaken in conjunction with our contract administration service, thus assisting to minimise disruptions and delays to any design and project programme.

  • you identify which neighbouring properties fall within the Act
  • Serve (and respond to) party wall notices
  • Prepare and agree a party wall award
  • Produce and agree a schedules of condition
  • Monitor works to ensure compliance with the Party Wall Act

We can advise on whether or not the appropriate actions are being taken to protect neighbouring buildings.

Land Lord and Tennant Services

With experience in acting on behalf of local and national landlords and tenants, we provide advice on all aspects of commercial and residential Landlord and Tenant issues.

The range of quantity surveying services we provide include:
  • Lease consultancy – advising on the initial drafting of lease covenants, providing a proactive approach in considering the short and long terms impacts and needs of landlord and tenants.
  • Negotiations – We can provide valuation advice and undertake negotiations of rent reviews, lease renewals, lease assignments, sub-letting, freehold reversion purchases and other landlord and tenant disputes that may arise.
  • Disposals and purchases – Lease assignments, sub-letting, freehold reversion purchases.
  • Third Party Arbitration and Expert Witness – Whilst we ideally try and resolve negotiations amicably, we have the expertise to provide advice on resolving landlord and tenant disputes through third party involvement and can undertake such submissions on behalf of our clients.

Commercial and Residential Building Surveys

Building surveys

A Building Survey will report on the various elements of construction (chimneys, roofs, gutters, walls, joinery etc.) externally, and roof spaces, floors, ceilings, staircases, fireplaces etc. internally. These elements will be described and their condition reported on.  The implications of the condition and options for repair will be identified.

Services are visually inspected and reported on.  Individual testing of electrical or gas or similar apparatus will be recommended if required, to be carried out by qualified persons. The external site elements (garages, outbuildings, retaining walls, trees, hard standings etc.) will similarly be inspected and reported on.  The survey findings will then be summarised with budget costs for repair included.

Building Surveys are particularly suited for older properties, properties with  known defects and properties that have been substantially altered.

Home Buyers Surveys

A simpler form of Building Survey is provided principally for relatively modern properties, generally dating from post second world war, although occasionally of earlier construction.

Inspection on site is as thorough as for a Building Survey. The report is on a pre printed format with defects categorised as low, medium or high priority.  Explanatory background issues are not dealt with and no budget costing’s are prepared. However this is a simpler and cheaper option than a full Building Survey.

Targeted Surveys

Occasionally a specific defect within a property requires examination (e.g. cracking, damp) but not a full Building Survey.  These are known as Targeted Inspections and are confined to particular identified areas.

Principal Element Surveys

On occasions clients do not require a full Building Survey of all the elements of a building, merely the principal elements of the building (walls, floors, roofs etc.) These surveys are particularly suitable when extensive alteration, refurbishment or renovation is proposed.

Commercial Surveys

Templars carry out full Commercial Building Surveys, Schedule of Dilapidations and other surveys and reports concerned with commercial, industrial, recreational and retail facilities.
