Velocity is a not for profit club and moved into our venue with a phased plan for development of the building in September 2017. Due to issues with the builder and a significant error on behalf of the structural engineer we have sought a completely new team for phase II.
We have secured £120,000 of Sport England funding to complete the renovation and had two primary contractors provide quotes. Unfortunately when the design was modified the cheaper of the primary contractors, based in Ashington, was unable to provide an updated quote because of a lack of response from their builder.
We are now in a position where we have limited time to either secure a new primary contractor or three quotes for each individual aspect of the work in order to release the funding. Our preference is a fixed price primary contractor however a barrier to achieving quotes from other companies, particularly sub-contractors has been the lack of detailed plans.
