Project Name: Alden Place, Helmshore
Client: Sterling Properties
Services provided: Quasi Quantity Surveyor, Monitoring Surveyor.
Following the purchase of the site from the receivers, the client appointed IDS to unravel the history of the site, review the specification and advise on market driven changes prior to tendering the scheme to the market. Following the review the client entered a joint venture with PJ Livesey to deliver an amended scheme to deliver maximum value in a difficult market. The scheme was value engineered to deliver 38 apartments in lieu of the original 31 based on the same floor plate. IDS were heavily involved in the negotiation and management of the finances throughout the project to ensure the clients delivered maximum value from the development.
