Quantity Surveying & Project Management services

Key considerations

The Spa Hotel Extension project was being carried out beside a live hotel environment, so it was vital we built the extension quickly and with minimal disruption to the existing hotel and guests.

In keeping with the luxury and elegance of the wider resort, we needed to source and supply high end finishes throughout the new building.

Effective solutions

We suggested modular construction for the new extension, and investigated an appropriate modular build system. All rooms were built and finished off-site, and then transported and craned into position. We overcame the logistical challenges of transporting these very large modules by closely co-ordinating the delivery schedules and timings with the ferry company.

Only larger M&E items, the external render, roof, internal decoration and communal finishes were completed on-site, quickly and efficiently.

We liaised closely with specialist designers and suppliers to ensure the best people were appointed to achieve the desired high end finish, at very competitive prices.

Success factors

Over a four year period, we built a very strong relationship with the Auchrannie Directors based on trust and results.

Through our hands on approach, we attended regular planned meetings on-site, as well as visiting at short notice to deal immediately with any issues which arose during the process.

On conclusion of our role in the project, we helped Auchrannie to implement an alternative strategy to successfully complete the works and open the new Spa Hotel Extension building in May 2015.

“Richard is one of the most trustworthy and professional people to have on a project. You just know you can trust any information he provides, and that he will deliver on time, within cost and to the right standard. Richard takes pride in what he does and you really feel he is working for you, rather than as a consultant, always doing things for the right reasons. He makes himself available at the drop of a hat and continually goes above and beyond to deliver results.”
