Northumberland Estates appointed Monument to provide contract administration and project management of the client-appointed design team, in both pre and post contract phases, for the delivery of nine self-build plots.
Works included the management of the pre-contract design process and assistance in securing the outline planning permission. We managed the tender process and appointment of the main contractor, as well as the completion of all contract documentation.
Our project management and contract administration services, while the works were on site, included the agreement of the final account.
Works comprised of the filling of a historic clay pit, including lime stabilisation which occupied 25% of the site; installation of foul and surface water drainage, including Section 106 drainage connection approval and Environment Agency approvals for discharging surface water into a watercourse; amendments to the highway and footpath; installation of street lighting under a Section 278 agreement; installation of all utilities to service the plots with minor road and surfacing amendments; as well as diversion works of HV overhead cables that cut across the site.
The project was successfully completed in January 2017 and we have been appointed by the purchaser of all of the plots to manage the construction of eight new-build four-bedroom detached executive homes.
