JLR Preston (Employers Agent, Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designer)
A green field site just off Junction 31A of the M6 motorway provided our client, Inchcape with a new site to bring their separate Jaguar and Land Rover sites together under one roof. Due to time constraints, it was agreed to negotiate this project. It was decided to use the contractor who had successfully just delivered another dealership for Inchcape, won in competitive tendering.
An ‘open book’ process was utilised using the same key subcontractors from that previous scheme.
The project was a success and opened in April 2018 after a 42-week contract period with a £9.2M build cost.
JLR York (Employers Agent, Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designer)
A former demolition site at Clifton Moor in York provided an excellent location for a new JLR dealership. A relatively flat site provided an excellent build once the restrictive planning issues had been resolved.
This project had added complexities with the completed project to be sold to a pension fund. As Employers Agents, we had an extra layer of involvement with the pension funds representative.
Through developing a teamwork approach with all parties a high quality project was delivered on programme and on budget to the complete satisfaction of both our client and the pension fund.
JLR Chester (Employers Agent, Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designer)
Built on the site of a former VW dealership, this project included a two storey showroom and rooftop car deck parking. The site was relatively small and until the adjacent Landrover Dealership (which we were invoved in its construction 20 years prior) was demolished (part of Phased works) to make way for customer and demonstrator parking.
Additional site complexities included a high tidal water table and a 1500 diameter emergency supply water pipe serving the Chester conurbation.
JLR Derby (Employers Agent, Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designer)
Built on a former cattle market site, the first phase comprised a demolition contract to remove the various concrete stalls, buildings and market rings to leave a site ready to commence the new build.
The project had to be designed to avoid a main water pipe towards the front of the site and to comply with Derby’s stringent flood prevention strategy.
The project was completed on time and budget with a glowing report from JLR.
