Baily Garner were appointed by Affinity Sutton as Employer’s Agent, Cost Consultants and CDMC for their circa £30 million joint venture scheme with Mount Anvil delivering 107 private apartments, 89 for private open market sale and 18 for discounted market sale. Our involvement focused on agreement of Contracts and JCT amendments, contract administration, design review and sub-contractor open book procurement in collaboration with the Contractor’s Team, aiming to reduce costs and increase value.
Having assisted with securing the site from the Vendor, our role moved to provision of due diligence reports and outline cost advice. This information was used to negotiate and agree the base cost, specification, design optimisation, programme delivery and added value with the developer. Concluding discussions were then held on the split of equity and post-contract management, where we agreed a process of market testing trade packages, including tender documents and proposed specifications.
With completion in August 2015, the resulting successful delivery of 107 high quality 1/2/3 bed apartments will produce average sales values at The Laudau of circa £1,202 per ft².
