London Borough of Newham / Newham Homes

In 2015 Newham Council appointed us, after a competitive OJEU tender, as the single consultant on a 10-year long-term contract to provide all of the following services:

  • Project monitoring / Employer’s agent
  • Project management
  • Building surveyor
  • Principal designer
  • Building services engineer
  • Cost consultant
  • Structural engineer
  • Architectural
  • CAD technician
  • EPC production
  • Asset feasibility reporting
  • Stock condition surveying
  • Party wall surveying
  • Latent defect reporting
  • Expert witness
  • Preparation of lease plans for right to buy applications

We have worked with Newham for over a decade already, and this appointment demonstrates their faith in us to provide a complete one-stop-shop service whenever they have a project to be fulfilled.

For Newham’s £20m per annum Decent Homes programme we provided a multi-disciplinary service, including project and cost management. We scoped 2,300 properties—finding that 50% of them did not conform to Decent Homes standards—then managed internal and external works to bring them up to standard.
As cost managers we negotiated contractor claims down from £3,000,000 to £2,400,000.
