Employer Agent

Project update – Unit 6, Pendle Court

Lea Hough has been working as Employer’s Agent on a new-build unit at Pendle Court, Nelson.

Unit 6 will be a new-build engineering factory with two-storey offices, standing at 35,000 sq foot.

Our role as Employer’s Agent has involved overseeing the contract between the developer and the appointed contractor. We are also working closely with the purchaser (Sugden Ltd) in relation to the internal fit out of the offices.

The building has been bespoke designed and built for Sugden Ltd – a bakery equipment engineering firm, currently based in Barrowford.

The project has reached a landmark stage, with the steel frame having been erected during January and the roof installed in February.  The next stage is for the walls to be cladded, and thereafter, the internal fit out can begin.

The project is due for completion in early summer – it is currently on time and on budget!

“We had a Schedule of Condition carried out on a Commercial Property. From vacant possession to our proposed completion date we were really tight on time. Gary managed to carry out the inspection and write a very thorough report in the time needed to ensure we hit our completion date. The price of the report was also extremely competitive. I would recommend Lea Hough to anyone looking for a Professional Surveyors with excellent service & communication at a competitive price.”
