August 2016

There has been no apparent let up in the flow of enquiries received during the holiday month of August and counter-intuitively during the current heatwave, much of H+R’s project work has revolved around damp issues, principally in London. Specialist damp investigations for commercial property managers have been undertaken in Oxford Street, St, James’ Street, North Audley Street, Eaton Terrace, King’s Cross, Pelham Crescent, Marylebone High Street, Wells Street and Acton High Street

H+R’s growing involvement in providing consultancy and specialist investigations of facades in support of façade engineers and other design team members has resulted in appointments for a large hotel development in Covent Garden and at an iconic pre-war apartment block in Westminster

Further afield, H+R have been working in Lyme Regis, Chichester, Somerset and Hertfordshire

Of particular interest in the month has been the provision of high level consultancy on the largest vacant property in Hampstead for a commercial agency and also at the Royal Exchange development in Kingston

H+R’s recruitment drive continues and Dr David Watt has received the accolade of being appointed a specialist assessor for the British Council’s Cultural Protection Fund
