Broadfold Farm

  • Broadfold Farm,
    Auchterarder

    Quantum Solutions was appointed to assist a private client and their negotiated contractor, EXCEL Contracts, to build the first house – a high specification, 3,000 square foot home – on a new development in the Perthshire town of Auchterarder.

Bespoke Home

Key considerations

The project had to be completed within an extremely tight timescale. The client wanted to move in before Christmas, allowing just 24 weeks in which to build the house and obtain sign off by Building Control.

Use of renewable technologies had to be adopted wherever possible throughout the property.

Effective solutions

Providing quantity surveying and project management services, we worked very closely with both EXCEL Contracts and the client, methodically but efficiently managing each aspect, to achieve pre-Christmas delivery.

We adopted various renewable technologies, such as a well to source the water supply, solar thermal panels on the roof and underfloor heating on the ground floor to meet the client’s brief.

Success factors

We made savings on core elements of the property, which allowed the client to introduce additional bespoke items of choice, while still coming in under budget on their luxury 4 bedroom home.

We built an extremely close relationship with both the client and contractor. When they decided to work together to build two further houses on the land, we were appointed to provide various front end services. This included setting up agreed specification descriptions with renewable input, and advising on commercial and design aspects of key elements.
