Contract administration – building conversion for boxing club – London Borough

A London Council had identified one of its disused and run down park pavilions as an ideal property for refurbishment and conversion for use by a boxing club. The existing building consisted of a single storey structure with a flat roof above and roof level water tank. The building housed a large number of small internal rooms resulting in inefficient use of space. 

The Council obtained planning approval for the conversion which included a main gym with a boxing ring and training areas plus associated facilities. The works were tendered as separate packages for the building works and mechanical and electrical works with Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors being appointed to administer the contract for the two packages (with separate contractors) managing the project from the pre-contract phase through the construction works to completion and end of defects period with an overall contract figure of £380k.

The project was successfully completed and handed over for use by a local boxing club.
