Case Studies

Arriva bus depot, Thurmaston, Leicestershire

Having agreed construction and lease of a new £2m purpose-built premises in Thurmaston, Arriva approached Innes England to monitor the works to protect the company’s interests. Innes England was involved on several levels – from reviewing the specification and drawings for the works to identifying issues that contravened design and specification proposals. We also ensured that all works and processes were compliant with statutory and regulatory requirements, liaising with Building Control frequently and resolving all arising matters. By documenting inherent building defects and formalising these by way of agreement, we were able to limit Arriva’s repairing liabilities.
