How our rates are set
Each year we look very closely at our recharge rates to ensure that they are just sufficient to cover our operational costs, and remain as competitive as possible. All E&F recharge rates are submitted annually to the Facilities Management Committee for formal approval.
In 2010/11 the Project Managers’ rate increased by just 1% for the second year running (to £56).
How consultants' rates are set
One way in which we deliver the larger small works projects, is by employing framework consultants to assist us, either with specialist services or with additional resources when we are at full capacity.
The frameworks have been tendered via the Procurement department to ensure that the organisations we employ are competent, have sufficient capacity and offer competitive market rates.
Our Project Managers are construction professionals with extensive experience in Building Surveying, Mechanical & Electrical Engineering and Voice & Data Network Infrastructure.
Team members are qualified to degree level and are members of professional bodies including RICS, CIOB, CIBSE and IET. They also hold NEBOSH Health and Safety and PRINCE2 Project Management qualifications.
