| Office premises, 220 Union Street, Aberdeen
FG Burnett was instructed to act as a Contract Administrator on Digby Brown’s office fit-out after they entered a new lease agreement with the landlord. This role involved designing and specifying the works, applying for and being granted local authority consents and receiving competitive tenders for the works. FG Burnett then monitored the works on site through to completion and undertook all client and contractor liaison.
|Unit C, Abbotswell Road, Tullos
FG Burnett was instructed to carry out dilapidation work at Unit C, Abbotswell Road representing 12,500 sq ft of industrial space. The premises were still occupied by our client until 21st September 2015 and the landlord had already suggested that if the dilapidations works were not completed by the lease end date in mid-November there may be a loss of rent claim against our client.
FG Burnett negotiated a price with a contractor who assured that works would be completed before the end of the lease and through careful coordination and management this was achieved and completed under budget.
|9 St Machar Drive, Aberdeen
FG Burnett are instructed to act as Employers Agent for our client who has purchased the former Autobody Repair Premises on St Machar Drive with a view to expanding their operation.
FG Burnett were engaged by the client to facilitate the first phase of the redevelopment which entailed the linking of their existing site 7 St Machar Road with the new site via a vehicular ramp and the provision of a new high bay workshop designed specifically for working with Subsea Intervention Systems.
Various local authority consents were secured and competitive tenders were invited on a Design and Build basis with the Contract recently being awarded to local contractor Chap Group (Aberdeen) limited. The final phase of the works have recently commenced and are due to complete in Q2 of 2016 which coincides with the clients requirement to service a contract recently secured.
| The Bastille, Maberly Street, Aberdeen
FG Burnett was instructed to inspect and report on water ingress at The Bastille, a multi occupancy residential building on Maberly Street. Upon diagnosing the source of the problem, FG Burnett undertook a phased external repointing and masonry repair programme, dealing with tendering, drawing work, site supervision and client liaison.
|Balmoral Business Park, Loirston, Aberdeen
FG Burnett is instructed to act as Project Manager for our client fit-out following the securing of the lease over part of the premises. Initially, the Building Consultancy department were instructed to undertake a general inspection of the premises which highlighted defects which were to be undertaken as part of the rectification period under the original building contract.
Following completion of lease negotiation undertaken by our Agency colleagues engagement with the client in terms of fit-out requirements were held and local authority consents applied for. Given the fast track nature of the project a negotiated tender process was undertaken and works are currently on site and due for completion in early 2016.
|14-16 and 20-25 Ocean Trade Centre, Minto Drive, Aberdeen
FG Burnett was instructed to undertake a large scale refurbishment of units 14-16 and 20-25 Ocean Trade Centre representing 41,000 sq ft of industrial space.
The premises were vacated in June 2014 and a 24-week construction programme commenced in January 2015 which included amalgamating units 14-16 and units 20-25, recladding roof and walls, renewal of mechanical and electrical services and general internal refurbishment. The contract was completed on time and on budget and managed to attract two new tenants during the works, who took occupancy of the premises immediately after practical completion.
This once again demonstrated another successful collaboration between the industrial agency and building consultancy departments of FG Burnett which proved to be of great benefit to our client.
