Service: Quantity Surveyor and CDM Co ordinator
Value: c. £6,750,000.00
Client: Brunton Shaw
Status: Completed June 2014

Brunton Shaw required major improvement work to their existing factory along with the construction of new warehouse and office facilities. The site was a live factory so phasing works were crucial for minimal disruption and to maintain productivity.

Phase 1
Major excavation works and removal of a 20,000m3 sand and earth bank prior to the construction of a large piled (and precast concrete) retaining wall with capping beam following NEC3 Option A.


Phase 2
Minor demolition of a section of the existing live factory with preliminary asbestos removal; internal refurbishment and single storey extension of the existing live factory, with external works to the yard area comprising reinforced concrete for storage of wire rope bobbins. Phase 2 was completed under the JCT Intermediate Building Contract with Contractor’s Design 2011.


Phase 3
Demolition of the former 1950’s office block and workshops. Construction of a new 2000m2 office block and warehouse storage facility with dock leveler loading bay. HV Cabling Diversion works to the yard with new car park to the front elevation including new retractable entrance gate following JCT Design and Build Contract 2011.


Phase 4
Construction of a 4500m2 warehouse with socketing tower including all groundworks to accommodate the new bespoke machinery and new 200t cranes. Groundworks included 4 large machine pits, heavily reinforced ground floor slab and machine crane rails.


Throughout all phases of the project, the following services were provided; Production of cost plans; Preparation of NEC3 and JCT tender documentation; Tender analysis and reports; Preparation of NEC3 and JCT contract documentation; Interim Valuations and monthly financial reports for client; Negotiation of variations; Final Account negotiation and completion; Working closely with the CA/ EA/ PM with the contract administration.


Careful traffic management plans were put into place during all phases of works as the site was in the grounds of a live 24 hour working factory. Discovery of contaminated earth meant works needed reprogramming to mitigate delays with the EA visiting due to contamination found in the canal. During construction, there were high levels of water around site and in machine pits which needed to be managed to avoid delays.
