Portfolio- Grosvenor and Hilbert Park

Grosvenor and Hilbert Park

Background

CFP were commissioned to deliver the role of Project Manager for the development stage of this exciting HLF Parks for People project.

Following the Round 2 Award we won the contract to project manage the Delivery Phase.

Our Role

We worked with the Council team, QS and a multi-disciplinary design team to develop building and landscape designs to RIBA 4. We developed a procurement strategy which saw enabling works delivered ahead of the 2 main contracts for buildings and landscape.

We handled all project management tasks including

Managing the design team, QS, reporting to the Project Board on a monthly basis, risk management, programming, grant claims, progress reports and cash flow forecasting.

We also provided support on communicating the project to park users, stakeholders and the wider community and worked with the Community Engagement Officer to oversee the successful delivery of the Activity Plan.

Outcomes and Results

The project delivered all the approved purposes and changes to the delivery of the project allowed greater scope for volunteer participation. The ambitious targets for volunteer contributions of over £132,000 were achieved 15 months ahead of schedule.
