Stratford College

Project Name:  Teaching Blocks Refurbishment 
Location: Stratford-upon-Avon
Client: Stratford-upon-Avon College
Net Value: £1,850,000.00


The client required the full internal and external refurbishment of these two teaching blocks, to turn tired, outdated and failing buildings, into state-of-the-art teaching facilities to take the College into the next phase of its campus redevelopment. 

Tandem managed the entire project from briefing, through the engagement of a professional team, design, and contractor procurement to construction and occupation. We also managed and administered the construction contract (Design and Build).


Project Challenge

Our Response

Stakeholder Management

Given that this was a general teaching block, there were multiple users of the facilities, all with their own and often conflicting aspirations. We implemented a detailed stakeholder management plan in order to deliver an acceptable solution for all.

Risk of Asbestos

The College records for the building were limited for this 1960’s modular building. To reduce the risk of unexpected asbestos finds during construction, Tandem instigated a programme of opening up, survey and reinstatement during one of the college holiday periods prior to procurement of the contractor.
