Modbury GP Plus Super Clinic

The new green star super clinic provides health improvement, dental and specialist healthcare services to the North East community. The redevelopment project which included the construction of a single storey building, an adjacent 2 storey building and car parking facilities for 145 vehicles was undertaken in 3 key stages in order to maintain minimum car park space for visitors over the construction period. The clinic was designed with innovative ESD features including North/South orientation, movement sensor lighting and careful selection of mechanical equipment to maximise the natural interior lighting and building efficiency to achieve the 5 Star Greenstar rating.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged as the Cost Manager to provide full quantity surveying services. The scope of work comprised preparation of budget based on preliminary design, preparation of cost plans through design development, appointment of Managing Contractor, participation in the value management engineering process and provision of construction stage services, including progress valuation, financial reports and cashflow and review of contract variations.

Services

The outcome

The project experienced financial pressure at the beginning due to the unusual market conditions on the price of structural trades. However, we managed to deliver the project on time and within budget through innovative value engineering and effective cost monitoring process.
