ST MARY MAGDALENE ACADEMY
Project: St Mary Magdalene Academy, Islington, London N1
Client: St Mary Magdalene Academy
Services provided: Advice on building defects
Contract value: Undisclosed
Daniel Connal Partnership was instructed by St Mary Magdelene Academy to offer advice in respect of various building defects that had manifested following the completion of new buildings in 2007 under the Government’s Academies Programme.
In 2011 the Academy suffered flooding during a torrential downpour which caused substantial internal damage. We carried out a forensic survey to identify the cause of the problem and negotiated the extent of the remedial works required with the Academy’s Insurers. We then undertook the role of project manager for the repair and rectification works.
We were also able to advise the Academy on various defects that came to light in respect of the design and construction of the new buildings to enable them to enter into a constructive dialogue with the contractor who undertook the works and their design team.
