Our Client.

A North East based property investor and developer. Tom Heaney and his business partners regenerate and refurbish neglected buildings’ into bespoke accommodation for business professionals.

Their Mission.

To refurbish and restore this derelict apartment building, formerly known as Catherine House into bespoke and modern HMO accommodation for professionals in the Newcastle business community.

Our Role.

We provided complete project management and quantity surveying services from the outset of the design stage, during the tendering process and procurement and appointment of the contractor, and throughout the construction stage as Contract Administrator. This challenging project required an intensive and dedicated management resource throughout the construction process.

The Result.

A bespoke £1m facility, procured via competitive tender under a JCT 2016 Traditional Contract; construction was scheduled from December 2019 to July 2020, following an extensive pre-construction period which began in June 2019. With significant structural problems to overcome, the creation of the finished building also required the removal of asbestos, as well as extensive remedial works to the fabric of the structure. Our involvement was from the outset up to construction handover and on into the operational phase to ensure a seamless transition from concept to the realising of our client’s aspirations; for which we are grateful for a fantastic testimonial.
