South Bristol Community Hospital

South Bristol Community Hospital

The 11,200m2 community hospital in South Bristol provides local healthcare services, including GP services, day surgery, rehabilitation, day assessment, dental outpatients and a walk-in centre for minor injuries.

The project included the construction of a two-storey car park and associated infrastructure works.

Initially, we were asked to provide cost advice to Bristol Infracare LIFT.

After financial close, our appointment was extended to provide project management, and independent certifier and quantity surveying services during the construction phase of the project, through to completion and handover to Bristol Primary Care Trust. Our cost reviews in the initial stages highlighted a predicted overspend of the budget, resulting in a fundamental design change, from modular build construction to a more traditional design. The team worked very closely with both Bristol Infracare LIFT and the contractor to ensure costs were closely monitored and efficiencies realised.

The team achieved a final account settlement £3 million under the guaranteed maximum price.
