Pell Frischmann are working on the delivery of an access road to help kick start 7,200 jobs in Century Park.
Once completed, the improved access will capitalise on nearby airport access and enable investments to flow into the 106-acre site to provide over 7,200 new jobs and generate economic growth across the community.
Started in October 2016, we have been using our project management capabilities to take this scheme from feasibility to construction. Such services within the project include the providing of transport planning and ground investigation reports, detailed designs of the access road, followed by the management of the construction phase before the project’s end.
The outstanding collaboration and teamwork with other offices through strong communication has led to the full capitalisation of a vast amount of skill, resources and experience held between branches.
With complications concerning the timeline of our client’s programme and management scheme at the start of the project, challenges were faced when attempting to achieve targets. This was due to the substantial amount of work needing to be completed in a very short time span.
As a result, we put forward an opportunity to divide the project in two; creating an enabling phase within the first year and commencing construction stage the following year. This improvement, although effectively delaying the scheme, was welcomed by our clients. These modifications embrace advantages that make the construction phase hassle-free, improves quality of design, whilst saving Luton Borough Council up to £10 million.
Pell Frischmann personnel from various branches were brought in for delivering sections of the Access Road works. This saw the uniting of Wakefield’s geotechnical and structures team, Birmingham’s transport planning team along with our leading Luton branch and Bishop Stortford to address potential problems and solutions. As a result, we created an effective strategic plan that will facilitate a successful completion of the project. The outstanding collaboration and teamwork with other offices through strong communication have led to the full capitalisation of a vast amount of skill, resources and experience held between branches. This has allowed us to come together to closely work with Luton Borough Council for the effective fulfilment of their goals.
With further involvement in other projects such as the supporting of Turner and Townsend in the project management of major infrastructure works in Luton airport, and upcoming projects within the enabling phase of the access road, Pell FrIschmann are thrilled to be part of these significant advancements within Luton and look forward to continuing our strong relationship with the council and local community.
