Victoria Office Development

This project included the delivery of two ‘BREEAM excellent’ office blocks, a large estate access road and associated services within the Victoria Business centre, Victoria, near Roche, Mid Cornwall.

This was a scheme which Rod was instrumentally involved from an early stage, following the client’s choice to deliver the scheme under construction management and so maximising the benefits of lower construction costs, programme certainty and construction early involvement.

This scheme saw the creation of two new ‘BREEAM excellent’ office blocks, two car parks, energy centre and a new access road. Through early involvement at the design stage, under construction management, the client made significant savings by incorporating contractor-initiated design changes, a biomass heating system, significantly reduced operational costs, and the achievement of sustainability targets. Further substantial savings for the client were made through careful procurement and management of the trade-contractors. The client achieved their targeted BREEAM Excellent Rating. The whole project was delivered with minimal disruption to the existing tenants through carefully planning and consultation.
