The population of Derbyshire is approaching 750,000 including the city of Derby, Matlock and large towns like Chesterfield, Swadlincote, Glossop, Buxton, Alfreton and Bakewell. The county of Derbyshire has outstanding natural beauty and has some arresting stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. The Peak District national park has amazing scenery beloved of tourists, walkers and the more energetic cyclists.
Derby tends to enjoy a fairly warm summer season, followed by a much colder winter. Between June and September, the highest temperatures can go above 20°C, hottest in July, often over 25°C. From late spring, daytime temperatures start to rise as daylight hours increase, and the area is less precipitation.
Older rural properties in Derbyshire will need to be prepared to resist water ingress through rising damp, penetrating damp and condensation. There may also be a need for building repairs, timber treatment and wall stabilisation. The mixed ‘industrial’ and middle-class housing in the towns of Derbyshire need to be guarded against dry rot, wet rot, woodworm and black mould that may result from dampness.
In 2015, Peter Cox were engaged to undertake a lengthy bird fouling removal contract for Derby’s historic Roundhouse site which entailed up to 18 staff working throughout the site for a period of 5 weeks due to the building having been left derelict for 20 years and had become infested with pigeons.
As well as the city of Derby, we have also covered projects in North Derbyshire and the city of Nottingham. One of these projects included a large scale basement waterproofing contract in a major redevelopment of one of the city’s shopping centres.
