Project Management – Stretford Town Centre
The LK Group was commissioned by Trafford Council to provide a traditional Project Management service, procuring and managing a design team on their behalf, to re-design the town centre of Stretford. This town has suffered a general decline in occupancy rates and the retail market has also suffered over the past 10 years, leading to a very negative perception of the town centre by the wider public. This is in part due to its proximity to the Trafford Centre but also due to tired look and feel of the area.
Stretford Town Centre
We provided a detailed and robust programme of works, including a thorough consultation strategy in partnership with the design team and a simplified, fast track design sign-off procedure that allowed the project to swiftly gather momentum and progress on programme.
Despite the challenges that existed with funding, we were in a position to commence works ahead of time and to also meet a tight programme of nine months to complete detailed traffic modelling and achieve buy-in from Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM). Works commenced in April 2017 and are on programme to complete in October 2017. Despite budgetary constraints, The LK Group has been able to maximise the deliverables for Trafford Council.
