Our professionals were appointed by Waltham Forest Council to undertake a robust analysis of options to assist them in determining their preferred investment route, for example whether to refurbish or redevelop their Avenue Road estate buildings.
We were invited to tender for the provision of condition surveys and planned maintenance surveys to record defects requiring attention for Waltham Forest Council on a 20% sampling of the 258 flats spread across five separate buildings on the estate.
We detailed key aspects of our approach, methodology and experience within our bid in order to demonstrate the successful delivery of the project outcome and key client requirements.
We inspected and produced three different costed planned preventative maintenance reports; a-minimal maintenance option for the retained buildings, a full refurbishment option and a minimal maintenance option assuming site redevelopment, each covering a 30-year period. These reports were integrated into the main strategic business case report alongside an architectural proposal for redeveloping the estate with the aim of enabling the selection of a commercially viable proposal whilst optimising value for money.
