We were appointed by the client as Clerk of Works well into the construction phase. This brick pier was at ground floor level and the building was by then at 3rd floor. The pier continued in this fashion for its full height. It had actually been set out like this from DPC – the joints had then spread as the pier was built. Horrific.
There was a sample panel on site and this looked nothing like it. By the time this was bought to the attention of the PM and client it was deemed to late to take down and re-build therefore, the client will just have to live with it.
