Project Development

As the Client’s Primary Partner, we had to fully understand the business plan, the funds available and the cash flow constraints. By grouping properties into the “small estates” programme, we then phased this over five years in line with the business plan. We either tendered or negotiated the works with a range of appropriate Contractors, the small estates programme accounted for 50%-65% of the annual programme per phase.    

Added Value

In the first two years we focussed on fully integrating the supply chain and after the first two years we undertook the programme without using a main Contractor. This gave us a significant improvement in value for money (VfM). We maintained maximum flexibility of the project’s programme and VfM in accordance with the business plan. Due to the flexibility of the street properties, we were able to balance the more inflexible “small estates” programme to achieve the annual business plan, VfM and resident satisfaction.
