Premises Development

Self Builds:

We have a successful track record of acting for GPs undertaking self build projects. Our services can take you from submission of the initial business case to handover of the keys to a new surgery. We have a pool of resources to call on to undertake the application to NHS England for funding, design (in which Practices are wholly involved), planning applications, assistance with bank funding, tendering construction contracts, selection of a main contractor, project management and final sign-off by NHS England.

Leased Premises:

We have acted for numerous GP Clients entering into leases with investor-developers of new premises. It is essential for GPs to take professional advice in these projects to avoid taking on onerous leases and accepting responsibility for expensive building defects. Our range of experience enables us to offer a wider expertise than many of our rivals who act as Monitoring Surveyor. We can advise on draft leases to ensure GPs are protected from, for example, shortfalls in rent reimbursement and service charge provisions which leave GPs with hefty costs which are not reimbursable. We are able to comment on design to help practices achieve a building that works for them. During the construction phase, our representation ensures that information flows to the contractor and developer from the Practice to help achieve completion on time. Where there are financial implications for Practices, we can assist with ensuring GPs receive value for money on any variations to the project and extras outside of the usual ABC List.

Improvement Grants:

Invicta prepares business cases for GP practices wishing to apply to NHSE for capital funding towards improvements to their premises. We are able to supply budget estimates for the works, commission the design through specialist architects in larger schemes to ensure that works meet NHS design standards, handle the tender process to contractors and project manage the works themselves.

Project Management and Monitoring Surveyor:

Paul Mayhew has more than 30 years’ experience in the construction industry and an established record as a project manager. For any size of premises development or improvement, please contact Paul to discuss your requirements on 01233 771946..

We have recently moved into a new, purpose built surgery after many years of searching for a suitable site. Our next task was trying to find a good, Specialist Surveyor to advise us on all the regulations regarding room layout, size, health and safety etc etc.

Rosemary Jones came highly recommended by another Practice in Hertfordshire and the whole project has been overseen and managed with considerable expertise from start to finish by her and her team.

The firm have been supportive, easily accessible, full of useful information and extremely knowledgeable throughout the programme, dealing with challenging problems with an expertise which has left us with a Surgery to be proud of and ongoing support since completion.

As the project progressed Paul Mayhew was bought in to support Rosemary. They have always been very accessible for advice on the telephone, recommending equipment, lighting, furniture, paint etc etc

Invicta Chartered Surveyors and their team are definitely a firm I would highly recommend to any Doctor’s Surgery contemplating a new surgery development.

They have been worth every penny we have spent, and supported us through what could have been an even more stressful period.
