Project Purpose

  • OCG conducted an Asset Strategy Property Review on behalf of London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
  • The purpose of the review was to create a sustainable, fit for purpose estate which supports and enhances service delivery, achieves value for money and to generate sustainable long-term revenue income.


    • The review encompassed a top down approach including engagement with services to understand how buildings and space are occupied and a review of prioritised operational and non-operational buildings.
    • Opportunity reports were produced categorising properties by Deliverability, Time and Financial efficiencies to be achieved. This resulted in identification of 72 opportunities including;
    • 28 Development Opportunities
    • 29 Opportunities to deliver Financial Efficiencies totalling £2m+
    • 15 opportunities that promote housing have been identified which would result in 250+ new homes for Tower Hamlets

    “Waltham Forest instructed OCG to carry out a review of our Facilities Management service.  The team were professional, and engaged with our staff and stakeholders in a manner that meant everyone felt comfortable and at ease in discussing what works well and not so well.  OCG provided regular project updates, had a flexible approach and a delivered a detailed report with improvement opportunities that everyone could understand and follow.  We were very happy with the outcome and look forward to working with the team again in the future”.
