Regal House - The Build Begins

How places are designed, planned and built effect everyone. Every development has the potential to transform the lives of those that use or live in the building and those that work or live around it. With that in mind the processes of design is critical and time consuming.

We at Knapman & Sons employ the most experience architects and surveyors to reach the goal of construction of a building that not only serves its purpose but enriches the lives of those that use or surround the property.

That stage of design is now complete on our Monsoon Road project, as is the setting out and foundation work. Over the next months we will be posting up to date pictures of Regal House as it is built, starting with this first set of photos above and below.

These project posts will end with a time lapse video of the build from start to finish.

Knapman & Sons continues surveys for London & Quadrant

Knapman & Sons continues with its due diligence surveys for London & Quadrant at Apollo Court London.

apollo court

Due diligence is essentially an audit to assess the quality of intellectual property assets owned by, or licensed to, a company, business or individual. It should also include an assessment of how intellectual property is captured and protected by the relevant company or business.

Typically, IP due diligence is carried out by a prospective purchaser in relation to the IP assets of the target company or business.  However, IP due diligence can also be carried out by a company on its own IP assets in preparation for a transaction, such as a business sale or a major licensing deal and that is exactly what many of our clients employ us to do with regard to their current housing stock.

London & Quadrant have employed Knapman & Sons to undertake the surveys over the last 20 months and therefore have complete records of each unit within the Apollo Court complex with regard to the property maintenance. This is invaluable information for the client and the purchaser when the property units become available for sale on the open market.

If you require more information on this service please contact us at our office and we would be please to meet with you to discuss your requirements.

Knapman Ltd has recently partnered with Regal Green Homes for their first design and build contract together. The contract, which is to design and build 6 flats, began in May 2014 and is scheduled to run for 9 months. The project is to be one of many to be built under the partnership.

Knapman Ltd has presented Regal Green Homes with an excellent design and their first class service by employing teams of trained people with exceptional communication skills that continuously organise and manage their operatives, sub contractors, suppliers and deliveries very carefully and meticulously as to not delay the contract and completion date, and also to ensure there is as little disruption as possible to the local area and residents.

Steve Bell, Project Manager at Knapman Ltd, says “So far, we are on schedule to complete the works on time and within budget. I can’t wait to see the finished product!”

The flats are set back from Monson Road in Redhill, Surrey and are due to go on sale in the near future.

Construction’s Most Famous Photo


2011 version 

Construction’s most famous photo has been re-taken in London. The new version of the photograph was taken by 61-year-old Michael Crompton from Southampton, who persuaded 11 workmates to climb out along a girder, 800ft in the air, to eat their lunch – just like to iconic 1932 image Lunch Atop A Skyscraper of New York steel erectors taking a break.

Mr Crompton told The Sun newspaper: "We changed it slightly — one of the workers had a can of cider in our shot, while in the original they had a bottle of whisky. And underneath our coats we all have harnesses and lanyards. But it was almost minus 10°C out there on the 48th floor and a few of the lads were telling me to hurry up."

Site bosses from main contractor Skanska were kept in the dark.

Top compliance accreditation for Knapman & Sons (Builders) Ltd



Knapman & Sons (Builders) Ltd is pleased to announce that they have successfully achieved exor accreditation, demonstrating their ability to meet the rigorous pre-qualification requirements within the private and public sectors.

panoramaThe Kent based firm recently received accreditation from exor, whose standards are recognised as being amongst the highest in their industry. Terry Knapman, Managing Director, of Knapman & Sons pictured above said “We are very pleased to have reached the ‘Gold’ standard of accreditation through exor and will continue to develop from strength to strength, offering our clients a second to none service within our industry”.

Exor-RoundelEstablished in 1997 to supply an efficient, outsourced supply chain service, exor understands that the management of risk is a central issue in the procuring of goods and services, adopting a thorough and robust approach to independently check and validate supplier information. Only suppliers and contractors that can attain and maintain these high standards will gain admission to the approved exor supplier database.

John Kinge, Technical Director of exor said, “Organisations need to be able to ensure that their supply partners are reliable, financially stable and compliant with all relevant legislation. A third party accreditation scheme can be an efficient way in which to manage complex compliance issues such as these.

With robust supplier management in place, the company at the top of the supply chain will have the confidence they need to outsource vital services, which removes the hassle of verification and gives piece of mind that they are adhering to regulation and industry best practice.”

Accreditation is a process in which certification of competency, viability and compliance with legal requirements and current codes of practice is presented.

The exor accreditation scheme assesses, reviews and audits suppliers’ procedures and documentation; suppliers can then be included on a database which demonstrates they have met the highest standards in the market place in procurement risk management.
