Project type: New Builds & Refurbishments
Client: Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust
Contract period: 5 Years
Walker Pritchard provided services for the planning, development and delivery of over £10million property and clinical service delivery investment programme, over a 5 year period.
Duties included all traditional QS roles, as well as detailed strategic and macro Project Management function; inception, development and management of Strategic Capital Investment Programme along with control of individual project budgets, programming, sequencing and interface with clinical professionals. Added value was achieved with the introduction of the CDM Co-Ordinator function to the role, ensuring that Client’s development risk was co-ordinated effectively and on a proactive basis.
Projects consisted of minor refurbishments to large complex extensions, ranging between £5k and £1million. A detailed knowledge and understanding of the Client’s strategic objectives was balanced against the need to interface effectively with clinical teams for building projects in live healthcare environments, ensuring sensitive services were not disrupted by site activities. Regulatory and statutory compliance issues were encountered and managed at every stage of project delivery, from inception and planning to on-site operations and completion/hand-over processes.
