Effluent Escape of Water – Wem, Shropshire

A large sewerage escape of water affecting 2 ground floor flats in a converted chapel, followed by a 2nd claim for a leaking bathroom pipe to a first floor flat in Wem, North Shropshire.

Dashwood Project Management were instructed in 2014 by a private client to prepare schedules of work and oversee strip out and reinstatement works following a large escape of effluent water affecting 2 ground floor flats within a converted Chapel in Shropshire, under an insurance claim. We were also appointed as the CDM-C. Our involvement has been to project manage and contract administrate the repairs and to liaise with all parties including loss adjuster and loss assessor, client and builder.

Strip out works were completed by ‘Sherratt Builders’ and following a period of specialist drying by others, local  ‘Sherratt Builders’ have also undertaken the reinstatement works using specialist tanking & breathable plasters.

Logistics to undertake works and compliance with CDM Regulations were complex given the lack of external areas to site plant, materials and deliveries to the property. Works  were successfully completed in May 2015 to reinstate at an approximate contract value of £140,000 exc vat.

A further 2nd claim has also been instructed following a first floor escape of water requiring replacement of rotted joists and flooring and strengthening of structural studs with an expected contract sum of £90,000 exc vat. Completion and handover early July 2015.
