QUANTITY SURVEYING & EA LARGE-SCALE RESIDENTIAL

PROJECT NAME: THE DOWNS QUARTER

Location: Altrincham, Manchester

Description of Works:

The Downs Quarter comprises four blocks of new buildings incorporating Residential Accommodation and ‘Live to Work’ Offices/Workshops. Underground parking beneath the residential units and a mezzanine walkway made this project unique. 

Saunders Quantity Surveying Practice worked closely with the project team ensuring the works were managed correctly and valuations undertaken and properly reviewed before certification.  Project complications arose from the part-built nature of two of the blocks and historical poor construction, as well as long-term weather damage to the partially constructed timber frames.  This resulted in several tests being undertaken post-contract and execution and management of provisional sums. The project was begun on semi-constructed buildings which were undeveloped following exchange from a previous developer.
