LPG Transfer Station.
JPC were appointed as Project Manager and Quantity Surveyor for the upgrading of the existing gas works, to enable the site to accept tanker deliveries of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) following changes to the delivery infrastructure.
The project value was circa £500,000 for Civils and circa £120,000 for Mechanical, Electrical and Controls works, with separate contractors appointed for each parcel of works.
An NEC standard form of Contract, modified for Guernsey Law, was used for the Civils works, with an NEC short form of Contract, modified for Guernsey Law, for the Mechanical, Electrical and Controls works, and individual Purchase Orders for all associated ancillary works.
The project commenced on site in August 2021 and completed in February 2022.
The key challenges faced were:
A very constrained programme, with fixed dates for beneficial use, due to external factors driving the required change to the delivery infrastructure (the vessel which previously delivered LPG to the island was to be decommissioned on a fixed date).
The requirement to facilitate beneficial / operational use of part of the site as early as possible (road-based fuel tankers needed to start offloading LPG, using the new infrastructure installed as part of this project, before completion of the whole of the works).
Ongoing change management, despite programme time limitations, as required to maximise the benefits of the works to the client (due to regulatory changes in the client brief).
Additional Health and Safety considerations through working on a COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards) Regulated Site.
