Report

Ingenta, 2 Poland St, Manchester M4 6BR

• Overall cladding to building poorly fitted and incorrectly fitted where terminated to the brickwork with no sill detail and varies from sat on brickwork to overhanging in places – because of this poor detail any water running down the cladding can possibly enter the building at multiple locations and needs to be investigated further.

• Down pipe drainage is poorly designed and runs through the cladding on a 90 degree angles causing debris to collect blocking the water flow putting pressure on the joints and over time cause leaks at joints – Clean down pipes / possible pipe re-route for better long term solution.

• Capping detail to top main roof poorly completed leaving exposed timber and degrading vapour barrier – this need another survey to work out a good solution to seal exposed area.

• Clean all debris from main roof area and would recommend ELD roof test to highlight future issues with the membrane.

• Replace damaged cladding and check fixings across building because in places fixing where loose and could call cause issues in adverse weather.

• Roof detail above smoke detector is really poor and need detailed inspection on build up and long term solution option.
