The programme has been established to manage the comprehensive refurbishment of a number of significant historic buildings. The Estate consists of listed buildings which are currently occupied and the buildings have not been refurbished for many years and are in varying states of repair.
A dynamic and growing team currently manages the programme, led by a Programme Director and overseen by a Programme Board chaired by the Senior Responsible Officer. The Programme is fast-moving and the post-holder is expected to make a quick impact following appointment. The programme has a high public profile and interfaces with numerous senior stakeholders. The Programme also has significant inter dependencies with other major programmes and carries some substantial risks that will require close management. The Programme will deliver the building refurbishments to Level 2 BIM using the NEC3 suite of contracts.
