The Lightbox £70m development at Media City offered 475 apartments in plots C1 & D1 overlooking the waterfront and the Manchester skyline and marked a real turn in the progression of our business. We are usually brought in for short periods of time 3-6 months tends to be the normal. Here we were once again, initially brought in on a short-term contract of 3 months arranged for us via our good friends Sarah Harvey & Claire Kettle at Harvey Lawrence Limited.
Bouygues had a £10m account with a sub-contractor that required final settlement. We worked through the account from pre-order meeting to final works on site and produced a fair and reasonable assessment of the account as a whole detailing where true entitlement existed. The account was agreed and closed which resulted in our commission being extended to look after several high value packages on behalf of Bouygues including the £10m Mechanical and Electrical Sub-Contract.
The overall commission lasted 13 months up to the successful conclusion of the scheme and included our being part of a successful tender for the high rise Toyoko Hotel in Manchester which unfortunately could not be progressed at the time.
