CASE STUDY

Lancaster Court

Lancaster Court, Central London

Project:

Lancaster Court, Central London

Client: RD&D Associates
Contractor:

AC Beck & Son (Contracts) Ltd

Contract value:

£80,000

Programme:

3 months

Services:

Scaffolding to exterior elevations
Roof repairs
Stone repairs and cleaning
Re-pointing to brickwork
Lead flashing details to ledges and cornices
Window repairs and redecorations to building exterior

Challenges:

There was a tight programme and a demanding budget. Lead prices had increased but we held our price firm. In the erection of scaffolding to the front and rear of the property, our scaffold lorries had to negotiate Red Route one-way systems. And to ensure pedestrian safety, we set critical start and finish times for work on pavements.

Results:

We were very pleased with the results, in particular the lead work to the ledges and cornices. The overall finish was of a high quality - and all the work was completed on time.

Feedback:

"Once again AC Beck has completed a challenging project both on time and to a high quality under difficult circumstances. The weather was particularly unkind with snow and below freezing temperatures during the end of the contract."
