    Project Impact

    The role included leading a multi-disciplinary project team to deliver a comprehensive, costed options appraisal. The first phase was completed in just six weeks. The client was a consortium of public institutions, including an Academic Institution, NHS Trust and local authority, the former two being international leaders in their fields. A major component was research into the life science market, which establish the critical success factors for a life science campus in south London. This included research into international Life Science markets including in Boston, Texas and Scandinavia. A series of analytical spatial studies were undertaken to establish a range of realistic site development scenarios.  The costs and benefits of each scenario were then estimated and rigorously tested. The business case was developed using the Five Case Model associated with the Treasury Green Book.  The preferred option was subject to further testing regarding specific issues, including future governance arrangements for the unique public-private partnership.  Inner Circle is retained by the client group to programme manage its delivery, and is currently leading the process to secure public sector funding from the London Enterprise Partnership, as well leading the engagement process to secure future development partner for the multi-million pound regeneration project.
