On the BESWICK COMMUNITY HUB project were appointed as programme manager in the coordination and procurement of a fast track series of construction contracts which enabled the successful delivery of the programme on time and budget. This project involved the regeneration of a forgotten part of East Manchester and has delivered a new 6th form college, leisure centre, retail units, Institute of sports health and performance and extensive infrastructure and public realm with a total value in excess of £40m.
The project was phased with phase 1 being taken from feasibility stage to start on site within 12 months. Our ability to negotiate and work with the main contractor allowed us to procure and deliver phase 1 on time and budget in 2014 and secured the delivery of phase 2 for delivery in 2015. Our success in delivering this complex programme also created opportunities to work on additional commissions from the client with the same main contractor. Our ability to successfully negotiate allows us to deliver projects for our clients whilst protecting them from exposure to unnecessary risk.
