Highlighting potential problems
We are constantly helping customers by actively looking for potential future problems and putting strategies in plan to prevent the closure of a building. Below is an example of corrosion of heating pipes at Woodfield Infants which was uncovered by their mechanical surveyor, Ian Pengilly.
Ian took immediate action to remedy the situation by:
1 – Arranging for an Asbestos survey to be carried out.
2 - Asbestos contractor removed asbestos and made safe the duct.
3 - Safety Certification was issued on completion of the area concerned.
4 - Mechanical Contractors instructed to replace defective pipes.
5 - System filled and tested.
6 - Heating system operational.
This process took about 8 weeks and if this had been in the depths of winter the school may have been closed for a minimum of 2 weeks.
