Extensive fire and water damage repairs – Brickfield Close, Ipswich

Building Size:
Four storey building, comprising nine apartments and a penthouse

Start date:
September 2010

Completion date:
February 2011

Project Status:

Project Situation: A four storey block containing nine flats and an additional tenth penthouse apartment suffered extensive fire and water damage.

Project Brief: Remove all fire and water damaged construction materials and re-construct back to the original condition.

Project Solution: The existing roof was completely removed as were all the existing Flooring, Insulation, Mechanical and Electrical installations. All existing Plasterboard and plaster finishes were hacked off. A temporary roof was built whilst the work was undertaken.

Points of interest: The unusual double barreled roof was a challenge as the existing drawings were not available.
