About This Project

Rowney Sharman were appointed by The Design Council to act as their project manager and cost consultant during the pre and post contract phase of the project and to fulfil the role of Contract Administrator under the JCT Intermediate Form of Contract.

With a very challenging programme of five months from appointment to relocation of the Design Council into their new offices in the Angel Building, the project required very close co-operation, initially with AHMM Architects and Norman Disney Young on the services to produce a design that reflected the aspirations of the Design Council but within a very tight budget.

The contract was procured traditionally and Overbury were appointed to undertake the works in a 9 week period (including the relocation of the Design Council from their existing premises). This was completed on time and within budget.

Provision was made for a number of meeting rooms, comms room, fully fitted out tea point, offices, open plan working areas and reception.
