METHODIST CHURCH, COLCHESTER
Project: Fire Damage Reinstatement Project
Client: Wimpole Road Methodist Church
Services provided: Building Surveying, Contract Administration
Contract value: £75k
Wimpole Road Methodist Church was damaged by fire following an arsonist break in. The fire destroyed the kitchen and damaged the adjoining hall and lobby.
Daniel Connal Partnership was appointed by the client, as part of the insurance claim, to undertake a full measured survey of fire damaged areas, prepare design & tender documentation and administer the contract.
The contract was procured under a JCT Minor Works 2016 Contract. The contractor on the project was JSL Property Services Limited.
The contract value for the reinstatement works had to be no more than was specified on the client’s insurance policy. There were also time constraints as the church required the project to be completed in readiness for a major fund raising event. Our building surveying team worked closely with both the Church and their loss adjuster to ensure that the requirements of both parties were successfully balanced.
We were delighted that the project was completed on time and on budget.
