Through the appointment of Sergon’s Quantity Surveying expertise, a review of the Scope of Work was conducted and a theoretical estimate for the remedial works was calculated by Sergon’s experts at $1.1M, less than all the estimates provided.
It was clear that the complex nature of the claim had resulted in some misunderstanding of work required and in consultation with the respective builders, builder number 2 was able to provide a reduction of approx $500K to $1.5M, however this was still more than the most competitive quote submitted.
By working closely with the Client (Insurer), Sergon were able to appoint Builder 3 with their competitive quote of $1.3M to complete the work in line with the scope, a great result given the highest quote was $2.3M, providing a possible saving of $1M. In addition, Sergon’s Building Consultant was specifically requested to project manage the repair works through to completion.
This is one of many examples that shows how through collaboration between Sergon’s various service offerings and expertise, as well as the strength in working closely with our clients and suppliers, we are able to provide a valuable and successful outcome for all stakeholders.
