We carry out a measured survey which is the drawn up and sent to the customer for approval.
Once approved this is sent of to structural engineers to calculate the beam and timber sizes which are to be used .
The drawings and structural calculations are then sent of to building control to be checked and approved .
So in conclusion it is impossible to cause a colapse by just drawing a loft! As you can see works are not started before approval.
Once any structural work is carried out an appointment is made with building control and an inspection of the work is carried out and checked before moving on to the next stage .
Before the work commences on site .A pre-commencement meeting is made with the Contracts manager who discussed all aspect of the build , checking drawings and any alteration that are required this is then upload onto our communication App.
So that the customer can view and make any comments or further changes.
In this case the works were in progress and not in the completion stages.
Put simply there were discussion regarding the rear platform having initially been built at 2.4m instead of 1.4m, but because the works were not finished the platform was easily capable of being reduced.
It was specifically confirmed that you wanted the room larger , we confirmed that if we did this it would be at your own risk.
Another couple of m3 were found and once we incorporated this into the build along with your request for extra head height we agreed that we could build it to 1.6m with a higher room .
It followed then after various discussion that you decided you would terminate the contract and not allow us to cover the roof properly and indeed carry out any further work.
I personally spoke with you and our final call when i offered to come to your property to check the work, previously checked by building control ,and also discuss how to move forward was rebuffed
by you and was refused access .
I was concerned as you had previously stated that the build was unsafe and that your children were at risk, which i wanted to confirm as i did not accept or admit too.
Soon after you emailed us to say we were in breech of contract and demanded a full refund of all monies paid to date.
Then you constituted a seven day notice to rectify which was replaced by an explicit statement you wanted a full refund of all monies paid which terminated contract .
Confusing as both wanting rectification and termination at the same time , without allowing any access .
We have instructed solicitors to act on our behalf .
It is sad that a project that could have been completed by now and be lived in has been terminated on a whim without any proper mediation
