Building Survey Case Study by Arc Building Consultancy Ltd Picture Works Nottingham

5 year old residential development beside Nottingham train station.

A Pension fund was looking to acquire the freehold from receivers as an income stream to supplement their spread of assets.

Significant defects were noted due to the property not being fully completed prior to the developer going into receivership. Problems included poor balcony fixings, loose cladding panels and general snagging.
