Completion: March 2017
Role: Development Management & Client Representative
Cambridge Estates was engaged by TVNZ in 2015, midway through its central Auckland building refurbishment project, to formulate and lead the delivery of a revised plan to ensure the achievement of project objectives.
The mandate was to restructure the project team, recontract the builder, and deliver this complex project within highly redefined budget and delivery expectations.
The scope of work included active management of the project contractor and consultants to deliver programme timing, quality and cost control outcomes. Cambridge Estates quickly identified improvement opportunities and acted as the owner’s representative to substantially reset project disciplines.
The restructured project was successfully completed within 1% of the agreed cost plan.
“John Coers leveraged his depth of industry experience to successfully navigate the project through multiple industry challenges… He managed to attract and motivate a team of high-quality specialist consultants; he demonstrated clarity of focus; a bias for action; and the tenacity required to see things through to completion.
Cambridge Estates added to significant value from the time of its engagement through to project completion, and if I had my time over again, I’d have engaged Cambridge Estates from the very beginning”
