Project details

TC Consult were pleased to take on the role of Project Managers, Employer’s Agent and Quantity Surveyors on this brownfield site redevelopment project, which involved the demolition and decontamination of existing livestock buildings and a new build retail scheme in the busy market town of Monmouth.

Competitively tendered using a JCT Design & Build form of contract, ‘Monmouth District Centre’ was successfully built out by Jehu Project Services. The scheme comprises four retail units totally 8,150sq ft and is now home to anchor tenant The Co-operative, Vets 4 Pets and Queens Fish and Chips.

Estimates vs final cost

TC Consult’s pre-tender estimate was £1m and the agreed final account was delivered at £1,045,000 which included some necessary enhancements and variations to the contract to suit the tenants.

TC successfully managed the challenges that arose throughout the duration of the project and ensured that the works were completed to the required standard by the required deadline.

Adding value

Craig Mathias, senior development surveyor at HBD, said: “The retail park provides high quality, modern units with ample parking and benefits from its convenient and easy-to-reach location in a popular suburban area. We are in no doubt that it will be a busy destination and that Co-op, Vets 4 Pets and Queens Fish and Chips will thrive in their new home.”
