Case Studies

Client: Former Durham County Hospital

Services: Specific defect analysis

Building Surveyors Ltd was appointed in respect of a substantial refurbishment of the former Durham County Hospital Harding building. The building demonstrates historic importance to the area and is constructed in a traditional manner. We were appointed as lead project surveyors to provide independent and expert advice on building defects including detailed inspections of timbers, the roofs, roof structure, floors and walls including timber decay, rot and damp surveys. We undertook extensive, destructive inspections over the course of the project to assist in advising the most appropriate refurbishment methods in order to preserve and protect the building and its historic merit.

We also conducted a detailed drone survey of the site to establish the condition of roof coverings and high-level building materials. A sample of the survey can be viewed below:
