Bishops Stortford Station


Existing AG Surveying Client, W R Harrison Brickwork, was contacted by a main contractor working on behalf of Greater Anglia to tender for the brickwork and builders works package for a new build ticket office, retail space and staff facilities.

The works

AG Surveying (AGS) provided commercial support from start to finish, initially undertaking a detailed take-off of the works from drawings, preparing a pricing schedule, calculating material costs, discussing the labour allowance and finalising a price for the works.

AGS and the client attended a pre-start meeting at Bishops Stortford station in Hertfordshire to negotiate terms and make sure that everyone was clear on inclusions and exclusions from the price, what needed to be done by others and the methodology behind the works.

After being awarded the works, AGS reviewed and negotiated sub-contract terms on behalf of W R Harrison Brickwork.

When works started, AGS assisted with the procurement of materials and subcontractors, and also prepared all payment applications and priced any variations that arose as works progressed.

The outcome

All works were completed within the original programme and both the client and station staff were very happy with the result. W R Harrison Brickwork improved on their tendered margin and were extremely pleased with the end result.
