We are instructed by NCFE to help them make a compelling case to the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) to relocate to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park after the 2012 Olympics (commenced at prior employment, Urban Delivery).
The College currently operates from a number of properties of varying condition dispersed across the borough and is seeking to consolidate a number of the larger buildings which represent significant maintenance liabilities.
We are helping the College by demonstrating the impact of the relocation on the London economy and the socio-economic impact of the relocation on the Six Host Boroughs Convergence Framework. Our work has informed the relocation strategy to ensure that the new College facilities are aligned to the future needs of the London economy and meet the needs of the Olympic Park as it becomes a major new urban centre over the next decade. We have provided discounted cash-flow models for a range of relocation scenarios to demonstrate the overall saving to the College / public purse of the relocation project and have worked with the design team (Allies and Morrison) to create a number of spatial options for the new campus.
