A 52 bed Extra Care scheme for One Housing, Pretoria Rd showcases our expertise delivering housing for older people schemes. Designed by our architectural colleagues, the scheme was constructed by Galliford Try under a fixed price D&B contract. We were appointed as EA, QS and CoW. The site had a number of challenges including mature trees, difficult access and existing services that needed diverting. All of these constraint put significant pressure on the budget. The scheme was competitively tendered and we then managed a value engineering exercise to make the scheme viable. This involved close liaison with our architectural colleagues to identify areas to simplify the design.
