November with the RTP Surveyors Team

Posted by & filed under News.

The nights are darker and the mornings chillier now we are out the other side of November. As Christmas continues to creep closer, RTP have been out and about, and busy as always. Here is a snippet of what our team got up to last month.

Nathan Dean at our Bodmin office spent November quite busy with survey work. He visited a complex of barns nestled in woodland with a private water supply. The clients were looking to finish converting the barns and it is likely RTP will take this project forward with them. He has also have been negotiating with contractors for completion of another barn conversion which shall be starting shortly, as well as liaising with Building Control assisted by Harriet Parkin, our Bodmin Graduate Surveyor, about a new build property in the area.

Our Falmouth Graduate Surveyor, Alistair Strachan, has been working on a Planning Application for new Pizza restaurant in Falmouth with help from John Darbyshire. He has also been working with Andrew Miller to produce condition reports on internal communal areas of a Falmouth housing complex, as well as working with Sue Wilton on CDM projects in Truro.

Sue Wilton has had a busy month for maintenance works and CDM. Sue and Harriet have been visiting St Ives regularly to inspect opening-up works where water ingress had been occurring in an apartment block (see featured image above). In addition to suspected water paths being confirmed, defects were also found in original detailing, which enabled the team to give advice on repairs and solutions to the problems. In addition, CDM projects continued to progress in the public and private sectors, ranging from schools and health sector premises, to conversions of commercial premises and residential apartments, stretching from Falmouth all the way to Suffolk. The focus of the month seemed to be travelling!

Lastly for this month, Grenville Tresidder received Planning approval for a Grade II Listed property in Truro which is to be converted into flats from office space. He was also pleased to receive Planning Approval for a roof conversion and extension project in Penryn. On going work for proposed alterations and upgrading of a Fish and Chip Restaurant in Falmouth has also kept him occupied, with Grenville efficiently preparing for the works to commence on site in January 2015.

What a busy end to autumn for the team!
