Albert Facey House

The project involved the fit-out of a 7 storey above basement existing building to provide office accommodation for various WA Government Departments. BMW were fitting out all 7 floors with part of the ground floor consisting of a commercial unit being sublet to a retail tenant. The fit out called for a high level of finish, specific security measures along with conferencing and meeting amenities.

Our involvement

Aquenta was appointed as the project quantity surveyors in 2010 and provided a pre-tender estimate based on the design works completed to date. After further design developments, a pre-tender estimate was agreed on. From 2011 onwards, we provided full cost management services for the tenant fit-out elements of the project


Bills of quantities, tender evaluation, post contract management, cost reporting.

The outcome

Significant changes in scope meant the original baseline, in terms of cost and time, needed to be re-evaluated. The original elements of the project were completed on time and to budget despite these changes.
