Building Consultancy Case Studies


Palestra, the 300,000 sq ft 13 storey landmark office development in Southwark designed by Will Alsop and developed by Blackfriars Developments and Royal London Asset Management, achieved Practical Completion on 24th July 2006. 

This £65m Building Contract was let to Skanska under a design and build contract with work commencing on site in early 2004 and has been completed on programme and budget. Cyril Leonard's Project & Building Consultancy team was initially instructed by RLAM to undertake a technical and financial overview and to provide due diligence in connection with Royal London's proposals to enter into a JV with Blackfriars to develop the site. 

Thereafter we were jointly instructed by the JV Developer to act as their technical representative and to monitor and report upon the progress of the development and to monitor the performance of the Contractor, Employer's Agent and employer's non novated design team.
