CDS undertook the initial groundwater risk assessment to assess site suitability and also carried out the pre-application correspondence with the Environment Agency (EA) to ensure that they would have no significant objections to the proposed development.
Following positive EA pre-application advice, CDS then progressed to the design phase and developed detailed design works for the layout of the site, burial plans, soft and hard landscaping and detailed drainage design to satisfy the planning requirements.
Once planning was approved, Buntingford Town Council requested CDS to construct the full tender documentation, detailed designs, specification and bill of quantities in order to issue a tender for the construction of the site.
CDS were appointed to review all tender submissions and to undertake a detailed tender analysis, assessing the contractor’s submissions for quality, experience and cost. The highest scoring contractors were interviewed to review the contractors’ proposals and to assess any proposed value engineering works.
Following the appointment of the main contractor, CDS acted as the clients agent throughout the construction phase; completing site inspections, works valuation assessments and quality checks.The construction works have nearly been completed, with the final surface topping and seeding due to take place shortly.
