University of Reading Cost Consultancy Framework

Reading University Cost Consultancy Framework - Projects - Ridge & Partners LLP

The University of Reading has retained Ridge for around 30 years to deliver a range of projects from major new facilities to small maintenance works. The projects vary in value from £15 million to £50,000 and they are part of a framework with a total value of £280 million.

Our professionals continue to deliver first-class cost management to this long-standing client on every project. The length of time that Ridge has worked for the University means that our team of experts knows each building inside out, allowing us to advise other design team members in unrivalled detail on critical issues, such as ground conditions and key risks. Our team even includes graduates from the University of Reading.

For all works over £100,000 Ridge provides full pre and post contract cost consultancy services. For contracts in the £30,000 to £100,000 range, Ridge undertakes site and desk checks to audit the prices received and for contracts below £30,000 Ridge undertakes a six-monthly audit on a percentage of the jobs to assess value for money.

After being initially appointed as cost manager, Ridge now also provides the University of Reading with a range of other services, including building services cost management, CDM co-ordination, building surveying and building services engineering.
