Mulvany Court – Tower Recladding

Client name:
Abri Group

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 this 6 storey residential tower block containing 60 flats in Southsea.

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.

One of the key challenges to this project was the proximity of the Network Rail line. This required the project team to put in place a Basic Asset Protection Agreement (BAPA).

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.
