Brandon Country Park

“The Engine House and adjacent Bothy were full of historic interest. To retain their character, a range of conservation and administrative skills were required for the overall success of the project. The involvement of Concertus in cost control and project management assisted greatly in the building works being completed on time and to budget.” – Tim Buxbaum, Conservation Architect

The Brief:
The Engine House and Bothy at Brandon Country Park were in desperate need of repair. These derelict buildings (containing original equipment) needed to be restored whilst retaining as much of the original structure as possible. The Engine House surrounds a well and the Bothy houses the site’s office. Brandon Country Park wished to provide an area for educational purposes within these buildings.

The Scope:
Our Quantity Surveying team was asked to prepare tender and contract documents. Reviewing and reporting of the competitive tenders to our client led to the appointment of a contractor. We were also commissioned to monitor the build on site, prepare interim valuations, undertake contract administrative duties and sign off the final account.

The Result:
The refurbishment was carried out sympathetically to repurpose the building for a modern approach. A link extension connects both buildings and accommodates modern facilities.
