Murray Birrell has been appointed via several managing agents to undertake external repair and redecoration contracts on a number of buildings fronting on to the dock.
The projects have all involved site inspections, preparation of detailed specifications of work and subsequent tendering and contract administration.next project
Because of the particular location of the external walls, it has been necessary to obtain licences from the Port of London Authority and ‘working over water’ rules have applied to all operatives involved. It has been necessary to locate scaffold directly on the dock bed or where it is present, on the existing jetty in order to safely carry out the work.
Typically, the work has included roof repair or renewal, repointing and re-rendering where relevant above ground drainage repairs and full external redecoration. The projects have all brought their own particular challenges in respect of survey, access and working with residents in occupation.next project
