Guttering System

When it comes to the maintenance of our buildings, this is always a keen topic for discussion. As we need to consider carefully how to spend the money that is generated. Upkeep and maintenance is of course of great importance and as such we do spend a significant amount of time on this. One of the most recent jobs we needed to look at was that of the guttering systems of our buildings. All of the buildings are old and therefore the guttering is too. We wanted to consider a solution that would provide minimal ongoing maintenance yet be cost effective. Our choice is for Aluminium Guttering as this appears to provide the best all round option.

The aluminium guttering can be made to fit in well with the design of the building, is relatively light, durable and will last a significant amount of time with little to no maintenance required. The aluminium can handle all weather types – extremely useful for the United Kingdom’s climate. The aluminium is good when it comes to rain and snow as it can handle this without rusting. It is quite a unique metal as once it is exposed, aluminium doesn’t corrode with the weather, it actually oxidizes and forms into a more powerful barrier which prevents against corrosion. The aluminium guttering that we chose has a black finish and looks like iron. In our opinion it has been an affordable option that looks exactly like what we had and has little to no maintenance.

When it comes to improvements of our buildings and site, we take great care in the selection process and all the stages involved. We take everything into consideration from the materials used, the way the product will look, the maintenance involved, the costs involved, the environmental impact and so on. We believe every aspect has been accounted for and are open to any questions with regards to this latest spend on improving our buildings.

Land Survey

With a recent project that we are planning on creating within the Hardirans Wall grounds required us to get help from an environmental consultant. Danny from Adeptus provided us with our required phase 1 desktop study which revealed everything that we needed to consider in terms of affect on the land.

The guys at Adeptus provided us with a clear and comprehensive report of the potential effects on the piece of land that we were looking to use. They carried out the report in compliance with government guidelines to ensure suitability for submission when it comes to us submitting our planning applications.

The main point in carrying out a phase 1 report is to reduce potential work load in the future and rule out an unnecessary work. Each section in the report let us know where no further investigation was required. Where additional site investigate is suggested, the report provides valuable information that helps with cost effective phase 2 investigation if required.

Why we need a Phase 1 Desk Study Land Report

It is an environmental assessment that collates specific information that is required in order to determine whether land has the potential to cause environmental risk.

The report included the environmental setting of the surrounding land and ecosystems. It takes into account the expected geology, hydrogeology and the proximity to controlled sources of water. Next reports the flood risk, previous site history, any contaminant source that are potentially present near the site.
