Project details:

Client: Union Architecture, Liverpool
Project: Poplars Close, Alltami, Mold – Luxury New Build Housing
Programme: 42 weeks
Value: £1.8 Million

Frank Rogers continue successful working partnership with Union Architecture securing latest new build contract award to deliver eight 4-bedroom luxury detached homes in Cheshire.

Scope of Works
Early mobilisation was necessary, clearing the remains of the former building merchants who occupied the site for over 20 years, removing outlaying buildings and storage units. We discovered low levels of ground contamination requiring further investigation and remedial action prior to commencing construction in January.

We implemented strict logistical planning, scheduling material delivery timescales avoiding unsafe build-up and congestion across a restricted site. Sourcing materials from building merchant Jewson’s located within ½ mile from site reduced our CO2 emissions in addition to maintaining our social value commitment to spend locally.

Cost Control
We provided monthly valuations discussing variations producing anticipated final account projection informing Client decisions, promoting transparency and cost control. Our commitment to total cost control was tested when several plots sold “Off-Plan” resulting in new homeowners requesting changes and additions. We continued to liaise with Union Architecture developing Mini-RFI Schedules issued identifying cost uplifts above standard specification for instruction.

Customer Satisfaction & Testimony
Frank Rogers implemented successful stakeholder management, supporting new homeowners making final interior design decisions. Our approach to collaboration working as a wider team achieved timely programme, incorporating unplanned design changes, resulting in excellent satisfaction all round.

Matthew Greavey, Design Director of Union Architecture commented:

“Frank Rogers commitment to supporting the design process providing timely product / cost information together with expert technical opinion permitted swift decision making across the project maintaining programme”

“Their customer service, commercial and operational teams provided excellent support to new homeowners going above and beyond providing product choice, lead-in timescales and budget estimates, maintaining quick decisions mirroring the main programme delivery”
