Byron & Linden House – Tower Recladding
Client name:Abri Group
Services:Employer's Agent, Cost Consultant, Principal Designer, Clerk of Works
We were appointed by Abri to provide Employers Agent, Cost Consultancy, Principal Designer and Clerk of Works services on their fire safety works. The scope included the removal of existing cladding and terracotta wall tiles, the combustible insulation behind and replacement with a non-combustible insulation to these 13-storey residential tower blocks containing 192 flats in Slough.
The D&B Contractor had undertaken some of the investigatory work and put together the Contractors Proposals (CP’s). We worked closely with the client to create a set of Employers Requirements outlining what the client wanted to achieve through the project. We then negotiated with the contractor to ensure their CP’s replicated the ER’s.
The works are now completed and within the rectification period and the project out-turn cost is below the contract award sum due to careful monitoring of Provisional Sums and several Value Engineering proposals.
