Brief – FSL Projects provided quantity surveying services on this project. Our role commenced at award of contract and commencement of works on site. This project was divided into two phases of work to refurbish the eight storey building to provide office accommodation in the centre of Bristol.
Challenges – Being a refurbishment project, we uncovered a number of issues that could not have been foreseen, these were managed robustly against the contingency pot. With various tenant demands being placed on the CAT A works to accommodate their specific requirements. The extent of scaffolding and subsequent road/footpath closure needed tight management to minimise impact to the occupied building.
Outcomes/Results – Phase One of the project witnessed a number of variations and contract extensions. Originally set on a 12 month contract, overall period spent on site was 28 months.
Phase Two has just commenced on site with a 45 week construction programme.
