A detailed electrician’s report on Sunny Days nursery building in Bridport reveals that the building is safe to reopen.
Landlords Palmers Brewery had the building in West Street thoroughly inspected and found no evidence of danger from the electrical system.
‘The report was commissioned because Sunny Days had closed the building, without referring to Palmers, because of alleged water ingress into the electrical system. The report found no evidence of this. A twin 13amp socket on the ground floor next to the damp wall was dry and showed no signs of dampness or water ingress when removed. This was the case throughout the property,’ said Nigel Jones of Chesterton Humberts, property agents for Palmers.
‘Palmers were surprised and concerned to hear that Sunny Days believed there was a problem. As a responsible landlord, the company takes all safety matters very seriously. After a prompt and detailed inspection, they were relieved but not surprised to find that the building is not unsafe,’ added Mr Jones.
Palmers has made some minor repairs to the roof and a leaky downpipe as part of works that were scheduled before the nursery closed.
