I am a graduate Quantity Surveyor working within the buildings and places team within the Liverpool office. I am involved with projects at various stages from producing feasibility estimates at the project outset all the way through to negotiating final accounts upon project completion, and everything else in between from producing estimates, producing contract documents, chairing monthly progress meetings and carrying out monthly valuations on projects.
One specific project I have been involved with since starting at AECOM has been the Shakespeare North Playhouse Theatre, Prescot, Merseyside. On this project I have been involved in producing detailed estimates, using software such as CostX to help do take-offs. I have been involved in the tendering process whilst ?letting out? some of the packages on the project. As this is a council funded project I have been involved in value engineering meetings with the client & architect and the appointed Contractor, to help with the design of the building in order for the project to be designed within the set budget. In addition to carrying out these estimates, I have also been involved in producing the Contract Documents that have been used for the Enabling Contract.
Here at AECOM in Liverpool we have a diverse range of people in our sports and social team. As a member of the S&S committee we try to organise events/days on a regular basis to allow the office to get to know each other outside of the work environment. We have recently just had our summer social event, which was a BBQ lunch which all the office attended and was a great day out for all staff.
