Fellows Add Value:
The Fellows team provided robust and detailed procurement advice during the initial stages of this project, to ensure that the procurement route and subsequent building contract suited the nature of the scheme and the client’s needs. This included the procurement of additional design advice and performance specifications to remove certain aspects of risk from the scheme prior to tender.
Robust value engineering has also been undertaken at a variety of stages, and has been key to the success of this development.
