Morello
How did we do it?
£37,787.20 savings made up of £9,435.31 and £25,531.89 from the developer for construction water and electricity use respectively. £1,500 towards the gates motor failures and £1,320 towards window cleaning not done before leaving site.

College Street
How did we do it?
The former accountant had expensed a utility company security deposit and therefore it had got lost at account transfer. We uncovered this and retrieved £4K for the Client, 4 years after this had got missed. A nice windfall.

Avante Court
How did we do it?
Built about 2002 this block of 100 flats was suffering from badly stained pigmented render due to the absence of coping stones to throw water clear. Our role was to cost the options of (1) cleaning (2) painting and to overcome expensive access issues.

St Dunstans Canterbury
How did we do it?
£10,626 which rightfully was due to St Dunstan's Canterbury had been lurking on the balance sheet unaddressed for many years prior to Ringley being appointed. Ringley set about obtaining proof that this was in fact an EDF refund that Peverel or FirstPort as they are now called were sitting on.

Millharbour
How did we do it?
When 3 experts recommended mechanical cooling to deal with common parts temperatures of 32.3 degrees celcius Ringley introduced passive ventilation techniques.

Temperatures have reduced by up to 6.8 degrees celcius, £128,000 was saved against mechanical options, with no expensive plant to maintain.

St Dunstans
How did we do it?
Ringley took over the management of a multi-block site in 2011 and as part of the handover, Ringleys inherited phase one of a two phase external refurbishment scheme from another Chartered Surveyors. Ringleys managed the project in 2013 and managed to save approximately £30,000 by carefully tendering and administering the contract.

Streatham Common North (21)
How did we do it?
When pigeon proofing for this awkward building with lots of nooks and crannies came in at £5,000 we knew that was too much for 20 people to afford. We worked hard to track down other solutions to traditional pigeon spikes and got the whole building treated for £2,800 + access.

Brecon Heights
How did we do it?
We believe in local is often best. It's greener too.

We saved 75% on gardening by re-tenering locally for a gardener/handyman.
