This project was a 20 week programme of works, which we started back in April 2017. The project consisted of external repointing and remedial works to Castle House in Castle Hill Avenue, Folkestone.
Martello acted on behalf of the managing agent – Smith Woolley, as Contract Administrator, CDM Principal Designer, Quantity Surveyor and Building Surveyor and we worked with local building company Redec – the Principal Contractor for the project.
The large commercial office block required full external scaffolding for the repointing of brickwork, replacement of the cavity wall ties and replacement concrete lintels, as well as other minor remedial and redecoration works.
There was an added challenge to the project in that the building was fully occupied and we needed to deliver the programme of work causing minimal disruption to the tenants wherever possible.
We were able to deliver the project on time and to budget with a happy employer, managing agent, and equally important – a happy tenant too!
