Sykes were employed on a design and build basis to build a new medical facility for the LSE campus.

The project had considerable strategic importance to LSE, the doctors surgery had to be completed by Easter 2011 in order that a £40m new build project on the site of the existing surgery could be started. T

he project required close team working with a large number of parties including:
• LSE Estates
• LSE Maintenance
• NHS
• Doctors surveyor
• Primary Care Trust
• Local Authority

The strip out of the space was carried out over the Christmas quiet period, before the proposed layout was agreed. The project experienced considerable change throughout the construction phase in order to satisfy the conflicting needs of the various parties.

Sykes offered a constantly updated budget to LSE during the construction process, and offered value engineering opportunities on all aspects of design including services.

Prior to starting the new medical centre, Sykes were employed to re-configure and refurbish three floors of Sardinia House to accommodate the HR department leaving the new medical centre space. This was heavily phased in an occupied building.

Both elements of the project were delivered on programme and within budget. The project offers a perfect example of what can be achieved when a genuine opportunity of partnering is taken by both client and contractor. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss this project further.
