Woolpit Health Centre


We were required to carry out quantity surveying and contract administration services.

The client did not have the internal capacity to carry out quantity surveying and contract administration services to RIBA stage 5. We were selected to undertake these areas of work to alleviate pressure on the client.

Quantity Surveying + Cost Consultancy


It was necessary for this project to include a ventilation and air conditioning strategy.

We provided support to the health centre by assisting the design team to create a CQC compliant building. An early discussion with the contractor, lead designer and client enabled us to realise quickly there were issues with some of the specialist design elements. Being part of a multi-disciplinary unit, we were able to provide the resource required to resolve the problems and complete the design quickly and cost-effectively. We were able to prove this by market testing the quotations we provided for the additional design elements.

Due to the project being at a live doctors’ surgery, the health provision needed to be maintained throughout. This made access difficult. We overcame this by adding a preliminary phase to resolve the access route issues and liaising closely with the contractor and client to replan the works. The original programme dates were still maintained. Furthermore, we assisted in rearranging the health centre’s activities to maximise the use of available space. The works were coordinated with planned holidays to minimise disruption and ensure continuity.




Our team helped the client gain additional funding and cost savings.

By maintaining a positive working relationship during this challenging project and through negotiations with the contractor and design team, including an analysis of the key areas of design, we have provided significant benefits. These include saving approximately 10% of the build costs in the reduced extension of time claims, avoiding abortive works and reductions in variations. We delivered more than our original role asked of us to achieve both value and quality.
