Firmingers were appointed as quantity surveyors, CDMC, party wall surveyors and contract administrators for Eversfield School’s new sports hall and enclosed swimming pool designed by leading leisure architect Roberts Limbrick Associates. The scheme presented numerous logistical challenges of working on a live school site with limited construction access. Procured on a single stage design and build approach, the scheme was completed to time and budget.
Heart of Worcestershire College
We acted as Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors to redevelop a former feed mill, latterly used by a furniture retailer, into a new facility for the College incorporating beautician, run on a commercial basis by the College, studios and teaching space.
We worked closely with the end users to develop the brief, prepared costings and assisted with the preparation of grant applications.
The £3m project achieved a BREEAM Very Good rating.
Firmingers also are delivering many projects for Warwick University.
Peirson Building University of Worcester
The building, which formerly housed the University Library, was refurbished to provide a study and guidance centre.
We worked closely with the University to develop a range of options. Following selection of an option we developed a two stage tender process which enabled early contractor selection. Design was progressed as the enabling works where undertaken. This was of considerable benefit to the University as initially it was expected to be completed in three phases.
The £1.6m project was received well by the students and has provided the University with a superb facility.
Worcester RGS and Rowing Club
We have been involved in preparing estimates for the construction of a new boathouse on the banks of the River Severn adjacent to the racecourse in Worcester.
We have worked closely with the Architects to ensure that the design proposal was within the budget set for the project.
The scheme is shortly to be submitted for planning.
We have also been working on an extension to Worcester Rowing clubs’ Boathouse
