Partnering up to deliver the detail

Situated along the main arterial route into Central Manchester, Oscar House stands proud with a unique design that differentiates itself from other luxury apartments in the surrounding area.  Working alongside our consultant partner, we acted as Employers Agent and Cost Manager effectively managing the challenging circumstances that presented themselves through a period of hyperinflation, material shortages and Fire Regulation changes that were being captured as works continued onsite.

Our role on the project covered the following:

  • Administration of the building contract
  • Design team management to assist with finding solutions to the post contract requirement of an EWS1 compliant building
  • Managing of variations and valuations
  • Programme monitoring and delay impact analysis
  • Reporting and facilitating of construction stage activities and meetings

Delivered, retained and operated by One Heritage this scheme is a result of hard work and commitment from all of the teams involved.

about what we did


Working under pressure 
using our collaborative approach

Construction took place during the early days of the COVID 19 outbreak where there were many challenges facing contractors who were being severely impacted by the ever changing circumstances facing the industry.  On a fixed price contract, we understood the issues and how vital it was to assist with identifying solutions and working with them to identify packages and changes that could drive value for the client and mitigate programme delays.

on the route into the city

It is within proximity to both Manchester City Centre and MediaCity, the home of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), through bus links and is less than 5-minute walk to the tram that links the two.  An exciting area benefitting from redevelopment is creating a new community on the edge of the city.
