Service: Quantity Surveying (QS) / Cost Management
Project: Bio-sciences Laboratory strip out and refurbishment
Details: In May 2013, Horizon PCS Ltd were commissioned by SHU to provide QS / Cost Management services on the Bio-sciences Laboratory Refurbishment in the Owen Building (L8). With our input, the project was divided into 2 Phases to ‘de-risk’ the programme. Phase 1 dealt with the strip out of the existing laboratory and plantroom, which also contained asbestos and contaminated equipment. These had to be removed separately by specialist Contractors. This was carried out whilst the design and procurement of the Phase 2 ‘fit-out’ was progressed. The fit-out commenced on-site in December 2013 and was completed during March 2014. The final account was circa £300k (for Phase 2) and the Contractor was NRC Services Ltd.
