Project: Yarmouth Stadium
Client: Norfolk Greyhound Racing Co. Ltd
Services provided: Quantity Surveying
Contract value: £2.5m
Following an unsuccessful attempt to procure the project within available funds, Daniel Connal Partnership was commissioned by the client as quantity surveyor to re-examine the procurement choice and undertake value engineering to enable delivery of the project within budget.
Working closely with the client and design team, led by Paul Robinson Partnership, DCP undertook regular cost planning and prepared bills of quantities to ensure tenders were received within the budget.
The facility provides a race-view restaurant and associated kitchens, executive lounges and viewing terraces.
The Daniel Connal Partnership undertook post contract cost monitoring and control including liaising with lending institutions and grant bodies. The contract, which ran whilst racing continued at the stadium, lasted just under 12 months. DCP achieved early final account settlement giving the client financial certainty and delivery within the cost plan.
