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.

Our Solution

We formalised an inspection and documenting approach for reporting and resolving matters with the contractor, local authority and tenant. This enabled us to unite all parties, while protecting Arriva’s best interests throughout the process. Today, we continue to find bespoke solutions to Arriva’s needs, challenging and directing the approach of construction professionals to ensure our client’s requirements are always met.


Our monitoring and guidance meant Arriva was fully informed throughout the build process. By liaising effectively with contractors and local authority partners, we helped the project run smoothly to completion, protecting Arriva’s future interests via reduced liability.
