This small new build commercial unit development in Buckinghamshire was made up of nine air-conditioned self-contained offices. It occupied the site of an historic paper mill, immediately adjacent to the Glory Park development near High Wycombe. Set in its own landscaped grounds, the modern, open plan offices were built to a high specification. The accommodation was arranged over ground and first floors with a 2nd floor mezzanine in 7 of the units.
In large projects of this nature there is always a risk of it over-running, going over budget or suffering from quality issues. The client and architect team were keen to ensure that the project would be closely monitored and so CLPM were brought in by the architects to work with them on behalf of their developer client.
CLPM acted as Contract Administrators for the construction works. This involved keeping all parties up to date with how the project was progressing and ensuring the architectural details and programme were adhered to. We visited the site regularly and held meetings to check the accuracy and quality of all works on site with the main contractor and to ensure that any issues are dealt with promptly. Once the bild was completed we helped with the snagging and defects resolution. Our team also supported our clients from a financial perspective, checking invoices for payment and helping keep a close eye on any cost variations and helping with the final release of retention figures to help ensure the project was kept within budget.
We’re pleased to say that having a strong project team including CLPM as Contract Administrator meant the building project progressed smoothly – with no major issues or delays.
