2005 - 2006 Inter Continental Hotel Park Lane(UK) - 20 Million

From October 2005 to September 2006, I was hired by BECK Interiors Ltd as the Project/Senior QS for a contract to refurbish all the public areas as well as the Spa and Gym areas of the Intercontinental Hotel on Park Lane, London.
The original project value was just under £15 Million but as a result of various changes and variations, the final contract value was concluded at £20 Million.

Throughout the period I was solely responsible for:

  • Issuing of all variation order costs
  • Issuing of payment applications to the client on the basis of work progress
  • All communications with the client QS team
  • Budget analysis
  • Contract evaluation for risk analysis and dispute resolutions (both main contract and sub-contracts and both prior to as well as after tender approval stages)
  • Financial forecasts
  • Reporting to the board of directors at any/all stages of the project as required

Immediately after this project I was then asked to take over the Senior QS position for another of BECK's projects, the refurbishment of the Grosvenor House Hotel, also on Park Lane.
