Philip Goacher Associates works closely with many Managing Agents to deal with term maintenance and essential repair issues on purpose built or converted blocks of flats. With expertise not only in structural issues, but also in damp investigations, roof defects and repairs, window problems, and contract administration, Philip Goacher Associates offers a full diagnostic and repair solution for all property defects.
Case Study: A 5-Year Plan
Philip Goacher Associates prepared an initial report detailing the defects to the property and ranking the defects in order of priority. A Schedule of Works was prepared and a budget price obtained from a builder.
In conjunction with the Managing Agent, a 5 year plan for upgrading the property was produced. The plan took into account the urgency of the works, available funding, scaffolding requirements, etc.
A meeting was held with the residents to explain the proposals and an agreement was reached to implement the plan. Schedules of Works on a year by year basis were produced and the work was carried out under our Contract Administration. The property has been transformed from a building known locally to have serious problems to a much sought after apartment block.
