Plumbing and Boiler Issue for Beauty Salon Refurb

Postby ctosler2342 » Wed Feb 26, 2020 6:07 pm

Hi! I have a beauty salon opening in a couple weeks. I hired the same builder to do floors, ceilings, walls, plumbing, carpentry, demolition, etc. and have a question about the quality of their work. It will depend on whether I need to employ some DIY or can push for them to fix.

The plumbing throughout the shop includes 5 pedicure benches, 3 utility sinks, and a bar area. Despite being hired 2.5 months ago, he just told me now that the boiler does not work—a couple weeks before planned opening and while I’m at the end of my budget. Firstly, how much of an issue can I make of it that the builder didn’t check the system far in advance of now, and secondly, is the boiler his responsibility (we agreed to him handling plumbing and this is for a £20K+ full shop fitting renovation) or mine? Of course, I should’ve thought to check when I signed the lease, but lesson learned. Thanks for any help!!!!
