Banking institution - head office renovation, Canada
Getting maximum value from a major renovation
The project comprises structural and seismic upgrades, new mechanical and electrical systems, entire renovation, fit-up and overall re-programming of the banking institution head office building in Ottawa.
The project is inherently complex in nature given the unique Arthur Erickson building design and heritage components associated with this high profile, landmark building.
Location: Ottawa, Canada
Date started: 2011
Completion date: 2017
Client type: Corporate and office
Key services: Cost and commercial management
We have been appointed to provide full cost management services including estimates at business case, feasibility and concept, schematic, design development and contract document stages. Additionally we will play a proactive role during the design process, assisting the team with risk management, benchmarking, project budget preparation, cash flow analysis and procurement strategy. During the construction phase we will provide ongoing cost management and budgetary control services through to the completion of the project.
Making the difference
Using a proactive approach to cost management, we were able to prepare robust cost models at business case stage, by working as an integral part of the design team to ensure cost certainty at the earliest possible stage
