COST MONITORING & QS LARGE-SCALE RESIDENTIAL

PROJECT NAME: ROYAL OAK RESIDENTIAL APARTMENTS

Location: Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire

Description of Works: The Royal Oak Apartments development is located within the Poulton-le-Fylde conservation area on the corner of two of the town’s main roadways.  The building has 16 self-contained 1 and 2-bedroom luxury apartments including several duplexes.  Works were completed by a local contractor under a 2-stage procurement route with full designs.  MEP design and installation was completed by a local sub-contractor.  Saunders provided Quantity Surveying and Cost Monitoring on this construction project, to a client who was based in London. 

Services: Cost Monitoring & Quantity Surveying

Challenges:

The project had its Cost Monitoring challenges, due to being constructed during significant material price rises which we had to manage fairly between the client and Contractor to ensure no delays to programme were incurred.  Significant changes to the statutory requirements during construction put heavy pressure on the project budget.  With detail cost examination and control the scheme progressed with minor cost and programme increases
