Is the cost truly fixed?

We have allowed for everything that is required to deliver a fully functional Custody Suite – in simple terms the floor, walls, roof, internal finishes, cells, custody desk, fixed furniture and van dock.

Essentially everything you see on the drawings is included in the costs.

Externally we have allowed for a fully secure site to service the Suite.

Your site may however have restrictions and render our standard design unsuitable or uneconomical to use. You need to know this before spending significant sums of money and for this reason we will carry out a free due diligence review of your site before you commit to spending any money.

Even if your site is suitable there are still certain aspects of a project we sometimes cannot control, for which our base price will be amended accordingly.

Adjustments will be done in full consultation with you and only when we agree the adjustment in time and cost will your commitment to proceed be requested. We will assess the suitability of the site within the first six weeks of the project order.

Our price is offered on an all-inclusive lump sum basis.

This price includes all elements as noted on the product drawings and the specification, both of which we can supply to you.

Our base price, as advertised, naturally does not take into account any site specific abnormals or survey fees (and their findings) as, by their nature, these need to be identified and addressed on a site by site basis. We will work with you in an open, collaborative manner to progress such items where they occur.

Fixed price – The costs for each model are based on an Project order date of October 2017. Costs incurred after this period will be calculated using up to date market data or using the BCIS indices.

What about OJEU?

All publically funded CODE projects can be delivered through the Scape National framework, for which Willmott Dixon are the sole contractor. Read More

Willmott Dixon’s selection as the sole contractor for delivery of construction works was made after a rigorous and fully OJEU compliant tender

What about programme and cost certainty?

CODE provides certainty - each design has a defined layout, an upfront specification, with a fixed cost and known time to construct. Read More

CODE provides certainty – each design has a defined layout, an upfront specification, with a fixed cost and known time to construct.

We will request each customer confirms their project contingency during feasibility

When we sign the contract everything will be known and fixed. For each building we have a defined design and specification. The cost and time to construct each is clearly defined. There is no guesswork. There is only confidence.

CODE offers remarkable value for money against the usual CLEP benchmarks.

How does CODE guarantee everything?

By having a defined product we can lock into our extensive relationships with suppliers all over the UK. By making sure what we deliver is consistent with the specification, we can guarantee the price and delivery. Read More

How are specific site factors dealt with?

This is the one thing that can change the price of our product. It would not be good value to offer a design that allowed for every possible site anomaly. It is doubtful that it could be done. Read More

This is the one thing that can change the price of our product. It would not be good value to offer a design that allowed for every possible site anomaly. It is doubtful that it could be done.

Our price presumes that the site is ready for development. For this it will need to have an electric supply, water supply and telephone to the site boundary and a sewer connection at the boundary too.

If these things are present and the site does not have anything that prevents development – for example protected wildlife or contaminated land – then the building should be able to be delivered for the price advertised, although statutory connection fees will be treated as an abnormal.

In order to confirm this we will need to do an audit of the site (called Due Diligence). Any adjustments to the price will be calculated in an open manner. All you will have to pay is the cost of dealing with the change plus a pre-determined percentage administration charge.

Is the cost the same for any location in the UK?

The costs for each CODE product is based on a Nationally Averaged Price, which is then adjusted using an industry recognised set of price indices (BCIS) – published at http://www.rics.org/uk/knowledge/bcis - to reflect costs in your particular location. Read More

The costs for each CODE product is based on a Nationally Averaged Price, as attached – to reflect costs in your particular location.

Location factor – The costs for each model have been calculated using a base location factor of Yorkshire and Humber (BCIS factor 91). Each model will be adjusted during feasibility to account for site specific locations

What if I need more than 50 cells?

Our expert design team can work alongside your project team to adapt the core models into a bespoke design to suit your individual project needs.. Read More

Our expert design team can work alongside your project team to adapt the core models into a bespoke design to suit your individual project needs. We will work with you to design a custody suite to your required size and specification whilst still retaining the benefits of a pre-designed product.

Personalisation vs. Customisation: what is the difference?

All CODE products can be “personalised”. You can choose the colours of your floor and wall finishes and also the doors, windows and the outside walls too - albeit the planners will have some say. This is included in the price. Read More

All CODE products can be “personalised”. You can choose the colours of your floor and wall finishes and also the doors, windows and the outside walls too – albeit the planners will have some say. This is included in the price.

“Customisation” – whilst we firmly believe that using our pre-designed layouts will give you the maximum benefits in terms of both cost and speed, we also appreciate there will be times where our designs either do not fit on your available site, or require adaptation to meet your particular requirements.

We have successfully worked with a number of Clients on adapted CODE models and would be happy to do the same with you.

Any design changes would obviously incur associated design fees but we will make you aware of these up-front so that you can make an informed decision. There may also be some additional time during the pre-commencement process to work through these – again we will discuss and agree with you.
