The Vinden Partnership appointed as project manager on combined police and fire headquarters
Bolton-based construction advisory firm, The Vinden Partnership (TVP) has been appointed to provide project management, quantity surveying and CMD-C support for the construction of a new joint headquarters between Derbyshire Constabulary and the fire authorities.
The new headquarters is TVP’s newest flagship project and reflects the company’s reputation on nationwide projects. The appointment came as The Vinden Partnership celebrated its 20th anniversary, last year, and builds on the decades of experience the Company has gathered in quantity surveying and project management.
The headquarters, which will be based in Ripley on the existing constabulary campus, is set to house approximately 550 staff across a number of different departments. It is also envisaged that this building will act as a catalyst for future working relationships between the emergency services.
A multi-disciplinary partnership between The Vinden Partnership, WYG and architects Calderpeel FGP was created after they won a competition to design the building. The dynamic collaboration has ensured that expertise in each area of the process has been brought together to facilitate an excellent end result and smooth production process.
Peter Vinden, managing director at The Vinden Partnership comments, “We are delighted to have been appointed to oversee the project management of the new headquarters in Derbyshire. The scale of the project is a great indication of talent, investment and industry recovery.
“We are experts in CDM and have an in-depth understanding of the construction market and its processes which can be invaluable to projects of this magnitude. Working with the other teams has also meant that we have formed sustainable professional relationships that we would like to see develop again in the future.”
The planning application for the project was approved in December 2014 and construction work is expected to begin shortly. It is envisaged that the project will be completed late in 2016 and opperational in 2017.
