Rund Partnership was appointed as Project Manager, Employer’s Agent, Clerk of Works and CDM Co-ordinator on this project for the design and construction of a new 75-bed care home, including associated external works, drainage and mains services.
The client entered into a lease agreement with Care UK, a national care home operator, and as such, the development was designed and constructed in accordance with their well-established design brief and performance specifications. In addition, ownership of the care home was transferred to the investor, MedicX, upon expiry of the rectification period.
One of the key challenges faced was the coordination of the complex discussions between the client, contractor, investor and end-user during the pre-contract stages, ensuring the interests of the developer and Care UK were maintained. A key issue was also the initial contractor entering administration. We managed the process to a successful conclusion for the developer, allowing work to progress and complete within the stipulated 14 long-stop date.
