Project Overview

External redecoration works required to windows of the front and side elevations. Also involved pointing to parapets and timber decking repairs.

LcBC’s role was Contract Administrator, working closely with both client and contractor to deliver project to a high standard on time and on budget.

Project began with LcBC understanding the client’s requirements. Once obtained, a specification was drafted and tendered to several large decorating companies.

Recommended contractor was appointed to undertake the works and pre-start meeting was held on-site, to make sure that all parties understood the project. Weekly site inspections and snagging were undertaken by LcBC and the contractors and the project was completed within 12 weeks, within schedule and under budget, with minimal disruption to the tenants.
