A landmark commission as Lead Architectural/Technical advisor to the Client Representative – Lendlease Consulting, advising Northamptonshire County Council on the rationalisation of their estate and the new build development of a 22,000 m2 Civic Administration HQ, in the centre of Northampton.
As a central part of the ‘Project Angel’ core team we were seconded to the site part time. Over the project life of 5 years we worked on the strategic and final business cases, wrote the brief for the new building, managed consultants in production of impact assessments and town centre regeneration plans, created the documentation for appointment of design teams, evaluated submissions and undertook the comprehensive review of all drawings throughout construction. We also acted as workplace advisers, delivering the work team strategies, interior furniture and assisting in moves management.
On completion, the Secretary of State for Sajid Javid commented ‘I have to say it is absolutely fantastic. Buildings often represent their organisations. It is a bright, modern and forward facing building – it is a place that is opening and welcoming – in touch with the past and not afraid to embrace its future’View case study View video
