Stopford House, Stockport Council Office Refurbishment

  • Client: Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council
  • Role: Project Management 
  • Value: £16m
  • Sector: Local Authority

Project Overview

This project involved the complete strip out and refurbishment of the Councils 10,000m2 central Stockport office as part of the council’s wider asset consolidation strategy.  We helped deliver a reimagined workspace for the Council based around new agile ways of working and driving significant sustainability improvements.

The project also consisted of delivering two smaller fit out projects within the same contract within the council’s demise for the NHS and Ministry of Justice. Both of which had separate design teams with very specific requirements.

All three facilities have been very well received by each of the end users with the main office refurbishment winning the award for best Corporate Workplace at the BCO North Awards 2023.

Services and value added

  • Management and coordination of the three separate projects and design teams.
  • Engagement with key stakeholders to facilitate a successful phased occupation of SMBC staff at handover.
  • Programme management, review of planning, mitigation and re-scheduling.
