Preparing schedules of condition in conjunction with the 2017 major refurbishment
Our client had a contract to undertake a refurbishment of the famous Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Central London in a rolling programme while the Hotel continued to operate as normally as possible.
As each area was released by the hotel for refurbishment, it was necessary to make a record of the condition prior to work commencing. Set Square Surveyors were appointed to prepare schedules of condition.
- Working hand-in hand with the contractor, we were able to undertake condition surveys of the existing hotel in advance of the construction programme to record the condition of parts of the building fabric to be retained
- Our surveys were often undertaken at short notice to avoid delaying the construction programme
- Our surveyors were required to blend into the hotel environment when accessing guest areas and needed to observe hotel house rules
