Arun Associates were instructed to facilitate the reinstatement a block of 6No. industrial/retail units  following a fire within a commercial estate located within Southall, Middlesex.

The fire had cut off electric supply to other industrial units within the congested estate and we were initially instructed to oversee the reinstatement of the mains supply. Arun Associates engaged a specialist electrical services engineer and were involved in co-ordinating and overseeing a mains cable replacement through the estate access road with a contractor, the electric supplier and various tenants.

A full architectural design was prepared by Arun Associates and we obtained all planning and building regulation approvals. We also prepared and tendered a detailed specification of works and monitored the works through to completion.

Other vital roles were that of CDM Co-ordinator under the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007 and the careful handling of matters relating to the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, to ensure minimum disruption to the adjoining owners.

Arun Associates multi-service expertise and ability to respond quickly assisted the client in minimising disruption to their commercial tenants and ensured a quick return of rental income to them.
