Edge were appointed by Sytner Group to fulfil the role of the Employer’s Agent and Cost Manager on their flagship BMW and MINI dealership development in Sheffield.

Our duties included pre-tender cost planning, feasibility options, compilation of the project budget, assistance with the procurement/selection of the project team and specialist consultants, programme advice, compilation of the Employer’s Requirements documentation, coordination of the design team, management of the tender process including tender list, tender analysis and recommendation for contractor selection and contract sum.
