The shops floors were affected by the water ingress and a Quatrefoils were the project lead in managing and implementing the reinstatement works. The works were part of an insurance claim and involved various loss adjusters and loss assessors representing the various parties.

De-humidifiers were immediately installed once the buildings were declared safe to enter and the units were dried out for a number of weeks whilst all of the reinstatement works were  being designed, specified, tendered and organised by Quatrefoils and the various parties involved. The works including an element of making good and reinstatement works to the ground floor shops, as well as a completely new tanking system by a specialist to the basements to enable the reinstatement works.
