I have had the following information from the City of Edinburgh Council Estates Department. The companies that are conducting this weekend’s inspections are as below. These companies are independent of both Amey and the Edinburgh Schools Partnership (ESP).
1. Summers Inman are carrying out the ceiling inspection. (http://www.summers-inman.co.uk). The plan of works is Internal – all high level areas including but not limited to ceilings, lighting, projectors etc.
2. Pendrich Height Services will be carrying out the inspection of the roof.(http://www.pendrich.com). The plan of works is External – Roof – tactile inspection – video and report.
Both of the companies are already employed by the Council to carry out similar checks across the Council’s non-PPP estate, so we (the Estates Department of CEC) are confident this will give us a consistent approach to ensuring the building is safe.
