Further investment in modernising these buildings will futureproof our abiliy to deliver effective diplomatic and operational solutions in our most important global post.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The programme continues to make good progress and remains on track. Amber remains the appropriate Delivery Confidence Assessment. Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Stage 3 has now been signed off, the design team are now into RIBA Stage 4 and the procurement process for a contractor is now well underway. Early indications suggest a good level of commercial interest in what is a significant local public sector contract, however, proof of the pudding will be in the quality of final bids. Suggest that the Delivery Confidence Assessment is reviewed at this point. Programme remains on track for design completion, appointment of preferred bidder and submission of Full Business Case (FBC) approval in Spring '19 (subject to IPA Gateway 3 Review). Work on site by Summer '19, with anticipated completion by end 2021.
