Acle Bridge

“I just wanted to say a very big thank you for your help with the architectural competition. Your calculations and advice were crucial in us understanding the costs and the scale of what we are getting ourselves into. Thanks for turning it round so quickly and producing a very readable report.” John Packman, Broads Authority

The Brief:
The Broads Authority will be commissioning an Architect to build an outstanding visitor centre for their site at Acle Bridge. This building will provide a new visitor attraction for the National Park. A competition for the initial concept designs was organised and our services were required to give an overview of the costs of implementing the shortlisted concept designs.

The Scope:
The works our Quantity Surveyors undertook included an overview of the site (involving a background investigation), reviewing the concept designs and collating a comprehensive report which we presented with the client. A list of potential risks was compiled to address any issues which could occur. An estimate of cost for each specific risk was also noted.

We were asked to join the selection team for the interview process. This involved working alongside the Broads Authority (who found our input hugely beneficial).

The Result:
The feasibility report helped the client to narrow down the submissions to a suitable shortlist. The costings within this report enabled the Broads Authority to focus on their overall budget effortlessly.
