Sandwell College

Project Name:  Cradley Heath Education Hub
Location: West Bromwich
Client: Sandwell College
Net Value: £9,000,000.00


The client required a satellite education facility to allow it to deliver a range of adult education / further education services to the population of Cradley Heath and the surrounding area. 

Having been appointed via the College’s new professional services framework, we were engaged to assemble the professional team and manage the entire project through to completion. Following the selection of the main contractor via a competitive 2 stage tender through the Pagabo Framework, Tandem will administer the contract and manage the interface between the principal contractor and the College / Client team. 


Project Challenge

Our Response

The site identified by the Local Authority (project partner) is insufficient in size to allow on-site parking. 

Use of established contract and 2-stage procurement to allow early contract.

Limited construction time

We have engaged a specialist Transport Consultant and our Planning Consultant to engage with the Highways Authority through the Planning pre-app process to convince them a zero-parking strategy as part of a highly sustainable development is viable.
