Retail Premises, Orpington


Defect Inspection & Contract Administration


Initially, APA were instructed to undertake defect inspection of a commercial high street retail unit located on Orpington High Street, following an episode of water ingress.

A new built up roof system had been installed over the existing asphalt roof coverings in 2010. We identified the new system had been poorly detailed, allowing water ingress in all sorts of locations since installation. This caused significant and wide spread wet rot of the timber roof structure, requiring replacement.

APA were instructed to undertake Contract Administration for the subsequent roof replacement works. The works included, strip out and replacement of the defective roof structure, including insulation and reinstatement of a cold liquid applied waterproofing system.

Contract Value:

The contract value was £80,000.00+VAT
