The Red House

This project involved the conversion of an existing Grade II listed house and servants’ quarters into three separate dwellings. It also included the construction of six, two-bedroom mews houses. The overall remit was to provide modern conveniences while incorporating original features, such as deep bay windows and leaded glass.

Adair was instructed to act as Contract Administrator for this project and manages the completion of the works when the original contractor had entered into administration.

We had to appoint a new main contractor and arrange for them to manage the co-ordination of the extensive sub-contracting works. We also managed the sensitive negotiations with existing sub-contractors about payments and developed an agreed way forward for the completion of the remaining project tasks.

Adair also provided all pre- and post-contract Quantity Surveying services; from tender preparation and analysis through to agreeing the final account.
