We were appointed by Leeds-based Clarion Solicitors to act as Expert Witness on behalf of The Community of the Resurrection who were in dispute with a contractor in respect of defective workmanship within their church building in Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

The Community of the Resurrection had invested in a major refurbishment of the church to modernise it internally, but were experiencing issues with the new tiled flooring.  We investigated the issues and provided a detailed report on the defects, how they occurred and how the problem could be rectified.

We were instructed to carry out a detailed review of the tender specification and particulars of claim. We then carried out a detailed site investigation which included specific and careful opening up works. Doing this and following a methodical approach lead to determining the cause of the defect. Our reports are compliant with the Civil Procedure Rules format as expected by the courts

In this case our Expert Witness report enabled the property owners to make a successful claim against the contractor and recover costs for the defective works.
