Our role as Cost Manager involved the preparation of initial high-level estimates through to detailed elemental cost plans, extending to value engineering exercises and cost checking of the design development as the scheme progressed through the RIBA design stages.
The project involved complex phasing proposals and was completed in three separate sections, allowing CLAAS UK to continue with their normal business activities for the full duration of the three year contract.
The works included 150,000ft² of new industrial buildings, including high bay warehouses, offices, showrooms and major parts storage and workshops. Plus 215,000ft² of concrete hardstanding for heavy vehicle testing and material/container storage.
Almost immediately following the demolition works, we encountered significant contaminated ground issues beneath the slab of the existing building. Oxbury worked closely with the design team and main contractor to reduce the potential additional costs and saving the client nearly £500,000 with minimal disruption to the overall project programme.
