Defect Investigation – London
CM Services Used:
Client: Confidential Asset Manager
Project Break Down
Challenge: Cardoe Martin were appointed to investigate an ongoing water leak into a basement level commercial unit used as a recording studio, suspected to be coming through the podium waterproofing. As the building was recently constructed, we needed to conduct a visual inspection only so not to create further damage or invalidate warranties as the property was only three years old.
Solution: Cardoe Martin carried out a thorough inspection of all the podium deck and identified defects further away from the internal leak affecting the upstands and detailing of the deck and were able to advise the client on a full scope of appropriate repairs which could be discussed with the supplier of the warranty.
