Blenheim Office Park, Oxford
Client: NSF International (UK) Ltd
Project Value: £5.5 m
Status: Planning permission received (October 2018)
Services provided: Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Employer’s Agent services
The design and construction of a new office building following the selection of the Blenheim Office Park in Oxford as the chosen location for the new UK Regional Food Division of NSF International Ltd. NSF International is currently located in several separate office buildings and is looking to consolidate its operations and training facilities into a new bespoke office building.
The project has involved the following:
- Alternative site analysis and options studies;
- The identification and procurement on behalf of NSF of all consultant Design Team members;
- Leading on all technical matters and liaison with the existing Landowner over all matters affecting the freehold acquisition of the chosen site;
- Procuring all specialist surveys and other studies to inform the planning and design process.
CIPS has advised the Client throughout on all matters relating to the freehold acquisition of this site from a technical perspective and has worked closely with the Client and its Acquiring Agents and lawyers in the negotiations with the existing Landowner.
We have been involved in the Project since concept design stage and are delighted that Planning Permission was finally granted at the end of October 2018 after five months of negotiations with West Oxfordshire District Council.
CIPS’s role will continue through the project build-out and handover.
