Crane Hits Building

Further education clients of Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors were having heavy equipment delivered to their premises when a 40 ton crane reversed into their theatre teaching building.

Our survey revealed substantial damage to the end wall, including cracks through which daylight was visible into the staff mess area and a substantial portion of the end wall was distorted and needing rebuilding.

Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors were appointed under the terms of the insurance policy to assess the damage, specify the necessary remedial works, procure suitable tenders, to supervise the work in progress and certify payments from the insurance company to the contractor.

Works were successfully completed on time and within budget and the building was back in use with the minimum of delay.
