Bristol Beacon Phase 3 - Project Management Office (PMO) Support

As set out in the 9 March 2021 cabinet report 'Bristol Beacon Phase 2' the Bristol Beacon Transformation project has faced significant challenges due to unforeseen issues with the building structure and Covid-19. In order to secure completion of the project, Cabinet approved an increase in budget from £52.9m to £106.9m in March 2021. The project requires a high quality, robust and rigorous approach to project and contract management. This will be delivered under management of the Senior Responsible Officer (SRO) by a Project Management Office (PMO) to coordinate and manage all project actions including contract management, supply chain management, stakeholder management and monitoring and reporting functions.
The resource requirements have been clearly set out by the Project Director and Head of Capital Projects. Arcadis the Council’s Strategic Partner have provided a public procurement regulations compliant proposal to provide these services that is acceptable to cost, quality and time requirements. This decision will secure an extension of the professional services needed to manage the project after the Cabinet decision to practical completion.
