This project was a 270 bed Boutique Hotel in the Kings Cross area of London, with refurbishment of existing building and the addition of 3 new floors.

Burgess Associates were proud to be part of the Principal Contractors team and were instructed to carry out MEP Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management services on their behalf.

Our role as part of the Principal Contractors team was to make a fair and reasonable assessment of the MEP Sub-contractors variation account in line with the Subcontract requirements.

This involved the detailed review and understanding of the subcontract obligations and associated variations making recommendations as to entitlement and valuation of the variations to enable an agreement to be reached between the parties. This project is an example of how Burgess Associates can apply their MEP Commercial knowledge to a Principal Contractors requirement.
