Parklands, Plot 4A, Bolton

Client: Orbit Developments (Shell)
Employer’s Agent: Orbit Developments/AXA
Contract Duration: 52 weeks
Contract Type: JCT 98 Design & Build

Parklands Plot 4A is a 48,000 sq.ft. office building, located adjacent to the highly successful Middlebrook retail park which surrounds the Reebok stadium in Bolton.

P.E.Jones Contracts (Manchester) Ltd were appointed to construct this building and a neighbouring building of 27,000 sq.ft. by Orbit Developments. The planning approval also incorporated provision for the two buildings to be linked at all floors.

When a letting for the two buildings was secured with AXA Insurance, the requirement for incorporation of the link was confirmed. In addition enhancement of the A/C systems to provide capacity for occupation at 1:7 rather than 1:9 as designed, together with layout adjustments to accommodate specific interior design requirements were identified.

It was agreed that these amendments would be incorporated into the build programme and that PEJC complete subsequent fit out works.

Implementation of these arrangements which included early access for IT, communication and security specialist to complete first fix works in server rooms and within floor and ceiling voids was managed by PEJC acting on behalf of both developer and tenant.

AXA’s requirement for phased occupation of the overall development was successfully achieved with handover of the fully fitted out building 4A and link infill to building 4B in March of 2007 and the finished shell of building 4B in August of the same year.

All associated infrastructure, car parking and external works was delivered to meet the relevant occupation dates.

Total contract value for the scheme, including works undertaken on behalf of the tenant was approximately £6.9 Million.
