Countess of Chester Hospital

We were appointed on the BQ production for Countess of Chester Same Day Emergency Care Hospital. Working on hospital buildings require intricacy to ensure all elements of the construction is accounted for.

Our team seamlessly produced the BQ for Galliford Try and were also involved in the value engineering options, reviewing the differences between a modular construction and a traditional construction

What occurred

Andrew Freeman, Nick Wilkinson and I were assigned the Countess of Chester Hospital project. I managed the team, split up the packages and made sure that everyone was working together to make sure that all items were included.

What was interesting

We don’t get many hospitals to quantify and this scheme being an extension to the existing building made it more complex.

How did we benefit the client?

The client had specific requirements to how the BoQ was produced so communication was key and understanding their requirements. There are also two options for the structural elements of the building which we had to provide two different BQs and made sure that no items were duplicated as this would affect their costing of the project.
