Issue details

To spend from the Property Services Estates Capital Works Programme on remedial works to Plough Lane Ceilings

Approval was granted to carry out the Improvements to air conditioning/ chiller/ heating pipework at Plough Lane.

The site survey for the pipework highlighted issues with the ceiling grids, the ceiling void equipment supports and the ceiling void fire barriers and a further survey was commissioned to assess and cost these issues.

To ensure a cost effective solution was achieved the incumbent Contractor TClarke Contracting Ltd. was requested to quote for this work, which amounts to £188,243. Utilising the same contractor ensures the rates quoted are comparable with the tendered rates and will mitigate disruption as ceilings will only need to be removed once and the works above the ceilings can be coordinated.

As a result, the existing budget will require up to an additional £100k to complete the works. The total cost for the project, inclusive of the 100k being requested, is £492,232.
