Tesco Refresh Programme

29 Aug 2006

RPA have been appointed as cost managers and planning supervisors by Tesco Stores for the second consecutive year on their 5 year refresh programme. Our allocation is for seventy schemes throughout the UK, to a very demanding timescale.  The schemes involve refitting and refurbishment works, and often include improvement and extensions.  Contract values range from £500,000 to £4,000,000.

Our appointment encompasses the procurement of the works and we have just concluded the agreement of framework terms with thirteen contractors. All of the contractors are working to a common schedule of rates for the works, which were established through a process of competitive tenders and negotiation.  The rates represent a year-on-year saving underpinned by a rigorous value management process.

RPA have two teams of surveyors working on the programme, based in Cardiff and Bristol, together with two surveyors based on a rotational basis in Tesco’s head office in Welwyn.
