Made in Chelsea
posted: June 10 2013

BSVP were appointed in April 2012 to act as Quantity Surveyors for a complex scheme just off Sloane Square. The works were to knock 2 terraced town houses into 1,this was in itself no mean feat.  However, the Client also required a subterranean pool and wine store to be created. This involved digging around 8m below the newly combined properties.  The works were split into 2 phases – Phase I was the major structural and builders work and then Phase II comprised the fitting out of the newly created space. Works are due to be completed later this year.

posted: August 12 2009

Building and projects consultants BSVP has supported the completion of the £4.6 million expansion of the Westwood Retail Park development on behalf of Hammerson.  BSVP were quantity surveyors on the major retail scheme in Broadstairs, Kent, which commenced on site in December 2008.

Hammerson, one of the leading developers in the country, already owns a significant portfolio of retail space within the Westwood Retail Park area and this latest project adds significant additional rental space of 57,000ft2 to Hammerson’s portfolio.

David Smith, partner at BSVP, said:  “This is the first scheme that BSVP have been engaged on by Hammerson and it has been a great success.   The project was completed within budget and ahead of programme which is a credit to all of the team.  This excellent end result was achieved by very close working between the client, the design team and the contractor, and a total commitment to delivering a quality outcome.

“The additional retail units are all now fully let which, given the tough economic climate, is a significant achievement.”

On behalf of Hammerson Plc, Simon Betty, Development Executive and Neil Crawford, Senior Project Manager, said: "Hammerson was both pleased and impressed by the cost consultancy service provided by BSVP on this very successful project."
