Athlete Village Design and Construction A Real Team Effort!
A FIXED SIX MONTH BUILD TIME FOR PODIUM LODGE WAS A CHALLENGE LOBELL CONSTRUCTION TOOK ON AND DELIVERED.
With a design and build project such as this one, communication is vital. For Lobell, their focus has always been on ensuring the client and stakeholders are kept well informed. Working between BPCT, ECS and the Chibnall Bucknell Team could present challenges but the Lobell team, and specifically Leon Carr as Site Manager, managed this side of things efficiently and transparently.
“The communication from the Lobell team was excellent. There was a constant open line of communication from the Site Manager and Lobell Management. This ensured all systems and information were in hand and decisions made became part of the final project delivery”
With a tight programme and completion date of Christmas Eve 2017, Lobell Construction’s team worked hard to ensure the handover was a success. It came in under budget, and the Brian Perry Charitable Trust’s vision was brought to life.
Louis Shaw of Lobell Construction says, “This was a terrific project, and the Chibnall Bucknell team were excellent consultants. With a great deal of careful planning, we hit every target. It was a great outcome for everyone involved.
The client was a pleasure to work with too, attending site meetings and assisting with decision making is essential in a design and build contract.”
And finally, Peter Chibnall says,
“Lobell’s commitment to professionalism, attention to detail and a clear focus on customer service are impressive. Their experience, coupled with their creative approach to problem-solving created an outstanding result. We were thrilled for the BPCT to take possession and open the doors to Podium Lodge in January 2018.”
