Our senior surveyor, Shaun Blake, recently prepared a Specific Defect Report for a client in relation to an issue with dampness affecting two adjacent commercial units on the North Woolwich Road. A Specific Defect Report is written to the same level of detail as an RICS Level 3 Building Survey but focuses on one to two particular issues. Our client had been approached by the owner of the adjoining unit with a complaint about dampness in and adjacent to the party wall.
The two properties comprise side by side two storey units set directly beneath the A1020 Silvertown Road expressway structure. An inspection was undertaken, with methodical dampness testing conducted to identify any similar problems and sources of dampness on the client’s side. Shaun was able to pinpoint areas of leakage from pipework/fittings, allowing the client to take prompt action and mitigate liability for damage in the adjacent unit becoming significantly worse.

North Woolwich, located just north of the Thames, sits within the London Borough of Newham in East London.
One of the more interesting buildings in the area is the former North Woolwich Station on Pier Road. Constructed in 1847 to a design by Sir William Tite, the brick building with stucco quoins and dressings is Grade II listed. It was a railway museum between 1984 and 2008 but, at the time of writing, it remains boarded up. The nearest station is now King George V which is part of the DLR.
North Woolwich is connected to Woolwich by the Woolwich Ferry and Woolwich foot tunnel. Originally established in 1889 as a free method of crossing the river, the Woolwich Ferry evolved from a paddle steamer to a pair of motor ships in 1963. It has been operated by Transport for London since 2021.
The area also hosts City Airport which opened in 1988 as part of the development of the Docklands area. In 2019, before the pandemic, the airport handled over 5 million passengers and serves several European destinations.
