Sussex Heights: Design & Project Management for Roof Works in Brighton

Cost of works:
Circa £130k

Completion date:
January 2013

What was the client looking for?
After experiencing problems with water ingress in the building, the client was looking for a long-term maintenance solution for the asphalt roof which runs around the perimeter of the penthouse.
The hope was that a new roof covering would also stop the roof leaks reported by residents.

Over the course of the project we

  • provided a detailed specification that included works to the lightning conductor, risk assessment and all necessary preliminary clauses
  • worked closely with others involved in or affected by the works; for example, the firm who altered the lightning conductor
  • went up the building in cradles to inspect the quality of the work
  • negotiated the final account with the contractor upon completion

And finally
We would like to say thank you to the board of Sussex Heights (Brighton) Ltd who were very helpful and ensured that works were able to take place and be completed satisfactorily.

If your building is within our catchment area, and enough residents show support by registering online, we can connect you t

Living with the Metropole

Were you upset by the number of lorries and cars in St. Margarets Place over the last week? Even the council’s parking attendants were unable to cope. Something needs to be done. Apologies from the Metropole are not enough. It was overwhelming. This is a residential street not a lorry park! Your inconvenience is their profit! In this case £65,000. The organiser of this exhibition was shocked at the chaos and abuse from drivers. He was so appalled he said he would never come back.

You can do something about it? Join me in complaining. You can also attend a public meeting on 24th November where our ward councillors will be taking questions from the public. See below:

claims for water or damp ingress

According to Sussex Heights Living

Aviva (our insurers) have reserved it’s position and declined to effectively consider or to settle claims for water or damp ingress until such times as SH(B)L have provided our insurers with evidence of timely and proficient maintenance or to offer credible explanation for the events that have caused unacceptably high claims for the consequences of water damage.Aviva have been requesting such information for almost three years now; and due to concerns by many that specific directors such as Julian Laing have been negligent in performing statutory and fiduciary duties without favour or malice, we are all now faced with massive hikes in our insurance premium.
