CHALLENGE:

 Two challenges were identified in the early stages of understanding the clients brief on this project, this first was time.

The project required a comprehensive survey of all external and internal areas of the site highlighting defects and recording the condition of every area and element of the building fabric. Due to the client's requirement to keep the site fully operational while the surveys were ongoing, and the challenges associated with it being a congested site, the Wide Horizons specialist surveying team was appointed to offer a service which would meet the client's objectives while safely overcoming the challenges present.
