Project Management – London Borough of Croydon

OCG were commissioned as Client Project Managers to oversee the refurbishment of two corporate property assets and the relocation of two high profile and high needs services. The total project budget for the refurbishment was £1.6m with efficiency savings (previously identified by OCG) of £170k that would be generated if a lease break was triggered and met. The project required delivery within 6 months. The services provided included:

  • Business case development
  • Full set of project management documents
  • Procurement of technical consultants including PD and architects
  • Stakeholder (internal and public) engagement and design input
  • Procurement of construction companies
  • Logistics management
  • Budget management
  • Full project reporting and management through the whole project lifecycle

The outcome of the project was the creation of the Council’s flagship all age, all disability centre with a full sensory room, training kitchen, dance studio and break out spaces as well as a new standalone domestic violence consultation centre. The lease break was met, services relocated, and refurbishments completed to client satisfaction.
