Belgrave House

The project on the Crown Estate in Oxshott, Surrey comprised the demolition of an existing property and the construction of a new 10,000 ft2 single residence, including a basement with cinema, gym, swimming pool and luxurious internal finishes and fittings.

Adair was appointed after the contracts had been executed and implemented a significant number of contract qualifications. This ensured that the contractor delivered to the agreed specification and to the original budget, including clarifying the contract sums and contract documents. For example, we identified items that the contractor was claiming for additional fees that were actually included as part of the original fee.

We also implemented a performance specification for mechanical and electrical works to ensure that internal systems, such as air conditioning, worked to the required standard.
