Adair were instructed by a public body to produce a CPR Part 35 compliant report in relation to planned maintenance works which had been carried out to a number of council-owned properties as part of a cyclical external redecoration programme a year or so earlier. The first task was to establish the contractual mechanisms and obligations, then inspections of over 1000 properties across the borough were undertaken over a three-month period in order to identify any evidence of poor workmanship, lack of supervision or breaches of contract. The properties inspected varied, from small terraced Victorian houses, to large blocks of over 100 flats. The client required the CPR Part 35 compliant reports completed with accompanying schedules of photographs of all the defects observed across the various properties within a short timeframe. Adair were able to mobilise qualified and experienced professionals from various departments within the company to assist in undertaking the inspections, identifying defects and breaches in a timely manner to allow the dispute resolution team to focus on producing the client reports, cost the remedial work and meet the required deadline.
