Assignment Brief – Assignment 1
You are working for a property consultancy firm engaged as project managers for the refurbishment and extension of an industrial estate recently acquired by a client of your firm, a successful high end privately owned residential property developer (Dalrymple Quality Homes Ltd (DQH)). The scheme is being taken forward by your firm’s client to provide a base for its new modular construction and construction robotics divisions.
DQH has created a wholly owned subsidiary (Dalrymple Industrial Developments Ltd (DID)) to own and manage the industrial estate. The project has two phases. The first involves the refurbishment and recladding of the four existing single storey steel-framed buildings on the estate. These buildings range in size from 2,500m2 to 8,000m2. These units will be leased by DID to the construction robotics division (Dalrymple Robotics Ltd).
The second phase involves the construction of two 50,000m2 high bay steel framed buildings, together with associated infrastructure works and landscaping on land purchased by your client adjacent to the industrial estate. The buildings will be leased by DID to the modular buildings division (Dalrymple Modular Ltd).
The client’s intention is to seek planning permission for the second phase of the project extension to the industrial estate during the course of the refurbishment works. Its present intention is to implement the permission for the extension as soon as possible after grant of planning permission but it wants the ability to defer or postpone indefinitely construction of the second unit should the circumstances of its business change.
Prepare a report for DID identifying a proposed procurement strategy and related contract strategy / strategies for the project. [The report should make clear the options considered and the reasons underpinning the selection of your favoured option over the others considered].
Your submission should take the form of a short report (in the order of 2,500 – 3,000 words), supported where appropriate by tables, diagrams etc. either in the body of the text or as appendices. Such tables etc. do not form part of the word count.
You must provide a clear justification for your recommended approach to packaging the project and procuring the works and services contracts required for the project.
Coursework: Written submission (Report) (70% weighting)
This will be based on a hypothetical project and will require you to prepare a report summarising the procurement and contract strategies you would recommend in order to secure a successful outcome for the client.
