Fellows Add Value:

Fellows provided Project Management and Quantity Surveying services from the inception of the scheme as well as performing all roles associated with our appointment as Employer’s Agent.

This project involved intensive planning in order to combat the restraints placed on site. Salient issues requiring sensitive management included site clearance, the utilisation of living space within the static units and the decant of travellers to temporary accommodation off site whilst the construction work was ongoing.

The above factors resulted in constant revisions of the design, as well as the contract documents in order to satisfy all parties involved.
