Home Builder Awards 2017

Home Builder Awards 2017 Build 11 KR’s aim is to provide all its client with accurate RICS compliant floor plans and ft² calculations. In order to achieve this, they regularly liaise with both the RICS and Trading Standards, thus ensuring that they are up-to-date with their current thinking and guidelines. Additionally, the liaison with Trading Standards ensures that BKR comply with the various relevant estate agents’ acts, so that any information they supply is not misleading. The firm’s portfolio of work includes residential floorplans, commercial floorplans, due-diligence, commercial EPCs, portfolio and management plans, collective enfranchisement plans, residential leaseplans, commercial leaseplans, elevations, residential EPCs, arbitration, planning applications, lettings floorplans, hotel plans, cinema plans, sections, sq. ft. arbitration, land transfer plans, and boundary changes plans. Recently, a major UK house builder built and sold 200 units off-plan in central London. They then commissioned BKR to measure all the units, in order to verify that the ft² on the built units matched those quoted on their brochure, thereby ensuring that they had accurately stated the ft² of each flat. This in turn meant that the selling price GBP/ft² was accurate and that no renegotiation with the purchaser was required; BKR verified that all properties were built to the ft² stated in the brochure. BKR has also recently worked on a portfolio of 270 residential properties, spread throughout East Anglia. Throughout this process, BKR had to contact each tenant to arrange access within a specific timescale, which in turn meant that trying to coordinate appointments in the same locality was challenging; despite this, BKR completed the work to budget and on time. The firm are based in London, although they work nationwide. Specifically, the London new homes market is having to adapt to challenging market conditions; part of this challenge is some off-plan buyers are looking at possible reasons to withdraw from their purchase, which is one of the reasons contractors are carrying out due-diligence on the built units. Everyone involved at BKR understands that communication is the key to any successful project. It is important for the team to understand the client’s Best Residential Floorplan Company - UK BKR are a nationwide company providing residential and commercial floorplans and Leaseplans to the country’s leading property companies.

It makes little difference if this is on a single unit or a portfolio of hundreds of units.
