Contract administration – Upgrade for two sports pavilions – London Borough

As part of a London Council’s programme of bringing their park buildings into good repair and maintaining their commercial viability, two sports and recreational pavilions built in the late 1950s were identified as requiring upgrading and modernisation. 

Proposals included providing a new accessible toilet with shower facilities, new accessible ramps, upgrading of the hot water and electrical installations together with new kitchen, floor coverings and decorations both internally and externally.

The Council had already carried out surveys, produced specifications based on those surveys and appointed a contractor to carry out works to both pavilions as one contract. We were instructed to administer the contract from contractor appointment through to completion and the end of defects.

The combined value of the refurbishment works equated to £200k and both pavilions were successfully handed back for use by local cricket and football clubs and community groups.
