A Portfolio of True Scale

Large scale site rationalisation programmes are only just taking off at pace and at scale. However, one client created a 50 site test programme to understand the challenges involved with a deadline of less than 12 months. Furthermore, the budgets and schedules were conducted without site visits and with an extremely small and inexperienced team.

What we did. We were handed direct control of 35 sites and we also entered a risk/reward agreement to support the complete 50 site success milestone. Only by collectively closing 50 sites would count as success.

Against our client’s initial thoughts - we conducted a 4 week intensive site survey road trip to fully assess both the exit requirements and the likely dilapidation positions of each and every site.

Not only did we complete our sites ahead of time and budget – but we were able to step in at a minutes notice and support other sites where other contractors had failed to deliver. The power of having us manage a portfolio is the commercial flexibility we can offer to ensure that even if one or two sites are over budget – the portfolio will be delivered for less than not using us at all.

We succeeded. Our client succeeded.
