Key issues, managed by Recom Solutions:

Stakeholder Liaison –
Recom Solutions liaised with all stakeholders, including and due to the complexity of the multi occupied site and the number of parties involved, this required a high level of co-ordination to ensure that the relevant stakeholders were involved at the right times.

Extensive Programme Management
– Due to the reduced 12-week period to undertake the works, Recom Solutions has had to rigorously manage programme constraints. The programme is detailed into day and night shifts with daily programme reviews scheduled with the contractors on site.
