The work, including all service connections, had to be completed within 7 months of taking charge of the site.
We are proud to say that patients were walking through the door within 6 and a half months – a great effort by the whole team.
“The first time I have ever known a building project finish on time and on budget!”
We were asked to tender as the Practice was keen to use a reputable local company.
After the intial tender process, three companies were interviewed. Paul Huggins impressed the panel most, and we were awarded the contract.
The new Surgery was to be built on an old farmer’s field on the Newdigate Road, to an exact specification and budget, and within a precise timescale.
COSTING AND PLANNING
Bob Pritchard, a very well respected architect based in Brockham, oversaw the project from start to finish.
We worked closely with Bob, with regular client consultation, to ensure a perfect ergonomic working practice. We were also able to use our contacts and reputation locally to minimise disruption to the local villagers, obtaining permission from a local landowner to set up temporary additional access.
