Category A and B Fit Out of 55 Bishopsgate

Fanshawe have significant experience of working within this particular building within the heart of the City.  We acted as Quantity Surveyors and Cost Consultants for Aon Benfield on a number of projects in the lead up to this particular project.  This included Comms Room works on one floor, a strip-out contract for another floor (to facilitate the programme for the Main Contract works) and providing cost advice to the Tenants in relation to the Landlord's chiller replacement works.
The main contract comprised the fit out of Basement areas (including catering facilities complete with a cold room, reprographics area, post room and a UPS Room) together with the Category A and B fit out of four upper floors.  The upper floors included typical office facilities comprising open plan and cellular office spaces, bespoke office solutions for dedicated departments, modern meeting rooms with extensive audio visual installations, IT Patch Rooms, copy / vending areas, a full kitchen and associated dining areas.  A full refurbishment of the toilets and lift lobbies was also carried out.
The project was completed on a Two Stage procurement route under a JCT Private Without Quantities Contract with Contractor's Designed Portion Supplement.  Despite procuring the project on a Two Stage Tender, we managed to agree 80% of the Contract Sum in the 1st Stage Tender.  The works had to be phased carefully on a floor by floor basis (over a period of 46 weeks) to enable Aon Benfield to continue to carry out their business operations with minimal disruption. 
Numerous changes were made to the design as the project progressed.  However, the works were successfully completed on time and within Aon Limited's budget.
