Price House, Southampton
Dispute Resolution & Project Management—
Rockall Projects were initially engaged to help bring a failing project back on track. The contractor had fallen months behind and the original quoted price had been exceeded despite construction being far from complete. Rockall engaged with the contractor and decided with the client that termination of their contract was the only option given the serious breaches that had taken place. We assisted in this process and subsequently put the remaining project works out to tender. The project is now complete with a new contractor.
We have seen several instances recently of "rogue" contractors, hugely overrunning budgets and programmes. In this case, the builder had several fictitious positive Checkatrade reviews, highlighting the need for rigorous due diligence. The contractor has since ceased trading.
Price House is typical of the high-end residential projects undertaken by our team. We can assist from feasibility, planning, procurement and management of the project on site. More about our services.
