North Road, Hertford

Summary

Existing AG Surveying Client, W R Harrison Brickwork, was contacted by a main contractor working on behalf of a developer to tender for the brickwork package for two new build houses with a very bespoke appearance.

The works

The scope of works for W R Harrison Brickwork included basement retaining walls and the construction of a number of different wall makeups, with lots of corners and returns to create the modern fa├žade.

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

Both AG Surveying (AGS) and W R Harrison Brickwork attended a pre-start meeting on site in Hertford, Hertfordshire to negotiate terms with the main contractor. After being awarded the works AGS reviewed and finalised the contract terms.

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 the works progressed.

The outcome

W R Harrison was extremely happy with our performance on this contract and they continue to use AG Surveying for all of their estimating and quantity surveying requirements on projects throughout Hertfordshire and Essex.
