Parr Bridge Commercial Scheme

Back

The Parr Bridge Commercial Scheme phase 1 has provided the construction of a new detached two-storey Nursery and a single storey shell and core food retail building. The scheme is sited on 1.11 hectares, surrounded by industrial properties, a warehouse, active metal recycling yard, an on-going housing development and Mosley Common Road with residential properties. Working for our client Flexdane ltd the team provided Principal Designer and Quantity Surveying services on the project covering a range of areas Including:

  • External works
  • Drainage
  • A new sub-station
  • 118 car parking spaces
  • A new access road,
  • Fencing
  • Soft and hard landscaping
  • External services

Our Quantity Surveying services were appointed at an early stage to provide the client with a budget estimate of the works and updated cost plans throughout the design development.

Working closely with the design team and the Employer’s Agent, the team ensured the project was delivered to meet the stakeholder brief and objectives. The team had a range of direct responsibilities throughout the pre-contract to post-completion stages including, analysing initial cost estimates, advising on development budget and preparing an updated cost plan to provide a basis for cost control.

The team managed the tender process including negotiations and the appointment of the main contractor, continuing their work throughout during the Covid-19 pandemic. In addition to this, the team also advised on the most appropriate procurement route for the scheme and prepared contract documentation.

Added Value

Vextrix provided the client with complete peace of mind throughout the project, providing a stress-free approach, taking away any concerns and removing the hard work from the process of cost managing the scheme.

Our experience of managing costs kept the project moving on time and on budget. This also facilitated a smooth and straightforward process when agreeing the final account, avoiding disputes and contract claims. Our commitment to leaving the client with a quiet mind allowed the team to provide a calm and controlled project delivery.

Clarity and open communication at all times meant that the team were able to offer open consultation and undertake a key role in this development, that will offer the local community of Parr Bridge a revamped site with modern and accessible facilities.
