Construction work has finished for the Francis Crick Institute, a London based centre of excellence in the field of biomedical research. We were cost consultants on the project.
Construction work has finished for the Francis Crick Institute, a centre of excellence in the field of biomedical research, a short distance from St Pancras International and King's Cross railway stations in London. By bringing together scientists from many disciplines, the Crick seeks to improve people’s lives by understanding the biology underpinning human health and diseases.
Housing over 1,500 staff, 1,250 of whom will be scientists, countless opportunities will be uncovered that are fundamental to biological discoveries in health and disease. The institute will be one of Europe’s largest centres of biomedical research, with the founding partners having invested circa £650 million to its establishment.
As cost consultants we have played a key role in the realisation of the Crick and have worked collaboratively throughout the delivery process.
Ross Hanson, Project Director, noted: “Excellent cost and value management delivered by the project team together with the client, with pro-active risk management and strategic planning has overcome the budget challenges. I am delighted to have worked on a project that will realise significant improvements in human health.”
