  • Recent case law on contractual disputes: Practical tips and advice for
           surveyors when managing a dispute
    • Abstract: In this paper, the author considers what surveyors can learn from a selection of cases from the Technology and Construction Court over the past 12 months and concludes that the message from the Court is clear: a little time and care at the start of an endeavour should save time and money in the long run. The last 12 months have produced several cases from which a clear theme can be drawn: diligence at the start of an endeavour, be it at the start of a construction project, the start of proceedings or the start of an adjudication, can yield great benefits in the long run. It quite literally pays to plan ahead for the worst, while, of course, hoping for the best. This paper will consider these cases and the lessons that can be taken from them and should be of assistance to surveyors when they are contemplating or managing a dispute.

  • An introduction to compulsory purchase valuation principles spanning 150
           years
    • Abstract: Compulsory purchase compensation law is an enormously complex, increasingly specialist, but very relevant area of law. It is an area of law that is unfortunately not well understood. With major public projects such as HS2 on the horizon, Members of Parliament and local councillors have had to engage with compulsory purchase concepts that have been in urgent need for reform for some time. The widespread application of compulsory purchase principles as a result of the enormous HS2 project is unprecedented. It is hoped that, whilst compulsory purchase has the attention of so many MPs, that the Government will at long last consider some of the reforms suggested by the Law Commission in its excellent report.

  • What is behind the mouse click? Technology is driving physical changes
           in the space occupied by the industrial and office sectors
    • Abstract: The world of business is changing rapidly. It is truly global and the speed of change — driven by the Internet and the amount of data that is being created and analysed to provide new and better services — is astonishing. Technology is driving disruptive innovation in the ways that business is conducted; the channels, both physical and virtual; and the partners involved in the process. This is having a fundamental effect on the way real estate is used across all sectors — retail, office, manufacturing, warehousing, and research and development. This paper takes a look at just some of the changes that are occurring, focusing on two areas: the e-commerce world and the impact it is having on warehousing and logistics, and the changing nature of work and the role of the workplace. In both areas, the role of the physical space is becoming more important despite the increasing importance of technology. On the one hand, warehouse design, operation and the supply chain is critical to online retailers (e-tailers), who want to be able to deliver products to consumers at the click of a mouse. On the other hand, businesses are waking up to the fact that the way the workplace is used and managed is critical in enhancing the effectiveness of the organisation in terms of collaboration and attracting talent.

  • Condensation in loft spaces: Myths and realities
    • Abstract: Both European and national governments see the insulation of the existing housing stock as an effective method of reducing energy use across the UK and the EU. Although the proportion of insulated ‘hard to treat’ properties remains low, a variety of government initiatives has resulted in the insulation of a high proportion of accessible lofts and cavity walls. In relation to the insulation of lofts, anecdotal feedback from residential surveyors indicates an increase in condensation problems in loft spaces. Although this problem has been described and solutions proposed in a variety of publications, the defect is still misunderstood by many in the surveying and contracting sectors. In this paper the author draws on a range of published guidance and research and separates the myths from reality. The paper discusses the factors that cause condensation in loft spaces; describes how condensation can be distinguished from other forms of dampness and outlines how loft space condensation can be reduced to manageable levels.

  • Flood damage: The surveyor's challenge
    • Abstract: These thoughts will not be new to the experienced building surveyor, but a professional reputation is often influenced by those with less experience. This paper has been written to assist those who are new to surveying. Those who may consider its comments to be too obvious may need to exercise some patience. These are the author's opinions and they are not necessarily shared by the RICS. This paper is an extended version of a short piece produced for the RICS on flooding, for circulation during the spring floods.

  • Rights of light: Parasitic injury and damages — a review
    • Abstract: At a time when the Law Commission has initiated consultation on the law relating to rights of light, this paper focuses specifically on one aspect of associated surveying practice – the treatment of ‘parasitic injury’ in the measure of nuisance, associated compensation figures and outcomes at trial. It concludes with suggestions as to debate and reform of surveying practice that seemingly resonate with reasoning underlying the Law Commission consultation project.

  • Repair work and the Party Wall Act: Who decides what is notifiable?
    • Abstract: Undertaking repairs to party walls, party fence walls and, in certain situations, other forms of party structures such as a floor separating different occupancies, is a fact of daily life. However, does it mean that every time an owner decides to undertake some repairs to a party structure they are obliged to serve a notice upon a neighbour under the Party Wall Act? If not, who decides what is notifiable and what is not, and what factors influence the decision as to whether repairs become notifiable or simply routine operations? The following paper aims to clarify this common but somewhat perplexing issue, which is seemingly innocuous in most instances but periodically can be mischievous.

  • Project reflections: The Florence Institute, Toxteth, Liverpool
    • Abstract: This paper reports on the saving of an historic Liverpool landmark for a local community. It focuses on how the condition of the building, which was in a state of near collapse, and the client's wider ambitions for community engagement, both strongly influenced the procurement and construction process. It also highlights aspects of these issues that might repay more in-depth investigation for the benefit of the heritage sector in general.

  • Above ground damp proofing: How to improve detailing: Part 1 – Solid
           plaster frontal masking systems
    • Abstract: It's not usually too difficult to spot locations of failure in damp proofing masking plaster. There is commonly staining, salt damage, rusting of embedded beads etc. Such failure is extremely frustrating for clients — usually home owners. It requires additional gears of knowledge and experience to be able to exactly understand the causes of failure — and getting to the bottom of the defect may sometimes require localised opening up. Having understood the cause of failure, the next hurdle is devising a remedial package to put things right. Putting things right is of course more difficult than installing a more reliable system in the first place. The sketch details in this paper show examples of failure and also of good practice. When commissioning damp proofing, the author strongly advises that a client insists on obtaining as much information as possible concerning detailing of the installation — so the sketch details and advice contained in this paper should prove invaluable. You will also come to appreciate when studying the various detailing options, that achieving more reliable damp proofing will require a more skilled approach, closer supervision of the work, and will take longer — and of course be more costly.

  • Are business rates fit for purpose?
    • Abstract: This paper is a précis of a paper presented to the RICS Rating Conference on 28th November, 2013. During this speech (and hence in this paper), the business rates system was reviewed, with specific reference to whether the current approach is fit for purpose and the changes that could be adopted to create a better business rates system. The paper outlines a number of issues associated with business rates as they currently stand, and proposes solutions to these problems that would enhance fairness while reducing administration and lowering costs for all parties. The paper also briefly analyses the announcements made regarding business rates as part of the recent Autumn Statement.

  • Renewable energy: The pros and cons of its use for retrofit in domestic
           and commercial settings
    • Abstract: Renewable energy is one of the most exciting technologies of the 21st century, held aloft as the panacea to take us out of the energy and carbon crisis and into a place of energy resilience. The ‘trilemma’ of ‘keeping the lights on’, being cost-effective, and reducing carbon emissions is met in part by this technology. Businesses and domestic customers alike are increasingly interested in what renewable energy has to offer, but are often confused by the available options, pitfalls and potential complications of becoming involved in renewable microgeneration. This article aims to address this issue with an overview of each of the technologies, their relative merits and the incentives available to help make renewable energy a worthwhile investment. Case studies are also included as examples of the use of the renewable energy and the investment opportunity that it holds.

  • Recent legislation in building conservation and its impact on building
           surveying for traditional buildings
    • Abstract: Changes to heritage protection policy contained in the National Planning Policy Framework (2012) and the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act (2013) follow a decade of historic environment policy reform. Significance-based assessments are now the established way of measuring and managing change to heritage assets. Improvements in the way protected places are designated, and how changes are recorded, have streamlined the listed building consent process. Within the heritage sector, there is an appetite for further reform, to ensure the best of our built heritage is sustained and enjoyed for its contribution to our culture.

  • The role of the advising engineer under the Party Wall etc Act 1996: Is
           there one?
    • Abstract: There is a growing tendency for adjoining owners’ surveyors appointed under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 to ask almost as a matter of routine for the building owner to meet the cost of another engineer to advise the surveyor. This practice adds the burden of yet more fees on the building owner.There seems to be no direct authority for this in the Act itself but the practice is supported by inference in a leading judgment and directly in guidance published by some of the professional organisations in the field. What is clear is that such an additional appointment should be made only in exceptional circumstances and that responsibility for the appointment needs to be carefully considered and defined.Surveyors relying on guidance from ‘their own’ advising engineer should also be aware that in so doing they and their engineers may become involved in the design itself and acquire liability of which they and their professional indemnity insurers are unaware.

  • Building controls: Making the right choice in energy management
    • Abstract: When managing energy in the built environment, controls should be one of the first tools out of the tool box; hence the importance of understanding what they can do and making the right choice. The control of energy in buildings is generally poor, despite the availability of a range of tried and tested systems. Specifications are often limited to the minimum requirements; innovative technologies, such as Building Energy Management Systems and Demand Control Ventilation are rarely applied. Building controls, whether stand-alone units or full building energy management systems, are designed to provide a comfortable climate for building occupants while ensuring this is delivered with the lowest possible energy consumption. Energy can account for about 40 per cent of the running costs of a building over its lifetime. Anything that can be done to help manage this effectively is a benefit to building owners and occupants. Any decision on what to specify should be based on lifecycle costs, not short-term thinking about the initial capital cost. Controls can be applied equally successfully to a new or refurbished building.

  • Dilapidations: Repairs and the supersession thereof
    • Abstract: This paper does not attempt to cover all aspects of dilapidations but focuses specifically on issues associated with the point when a landlord's chosen method of repair might become classified as an alteration; whether the landlord’ intentions are relevant; and different forms of supersession, all after the end of a tenant's lease.
