The redevelopment of the building had been project managed by the client themselves. A number of local contractors were used at various stages and the prices were agreed on a lump sum basis, job by job. Without a bill of quantities or contract sum, the accountant could not identify the relevant expenditure.
From a survey and using our building knowledge we were able to estimate of the cost of the building and identify qualifying plant and machinery from first principles.
Following our inspection of the building we discovered that the existing building had in fact not been demolished, but had been retained and redeveloped. Having established this we where then able to ensure that the claim was further maximised by establishing that some of the costs of the plant and machinery could be treated as incidental to their installation.
