CEO of Westmorland Limited
FWP had a critical role in the planning and build phases of Gloucester Services on the M5. It was a complex and unique project from many perspectives; planning sensitive, in a carefully regulated industry and it was a unique and complex building. They steered us with skill and diplomacy, enabling us to uphold our vision whilst bringing the project in before time and under budget.
Owner/Occupier of Slackwood Farm
Grade II* listed Slackwood Farm was on the list of endangered buildings, and turning it back into a comfortable home was no small task. The restoration was made easier by a team of first-class consultants at FWP. The project was completed without any major snags even though work on an old house is never easy to specify at the start. The first cost estimates from FWP proved remarkably accurate – so good not to have any shocks on costs. Well done FWP!
Operations Manager, SIKA
We contracted FWP in 2011 to design and manage the construction of a new £2.5 million Research and Development centre located at our Preston headquarters.
From our preliminary and exploratory discussions with FWP until the completion of the project in December 2013 we found the organisation to be highly professional, creative and constructive in their approach. We worked with many people at FWP and our experiences and the relationships we developed were always excellent.
Since completion the new building has attracted many compliments from many quarters including employees, customers, building owners, and neighbours.
Project Manager, Groundworks PLC
I have worked with Frank Whittle Partnership on the Rivington Terraced Gardens HLF project. To date this has focused on the Development Stage for a £4 million Heritage Lottery Parks for People project, and if successful at HLF Stage 2, there is the firm intention to continue with their services into and through the delivery stage. FWP have played an integral role in our Design Team for this project, and have delivered a comprehensive and professional service throughout their appointment.
Chief Executive and Clerk of the Course, York Racecourse
Frank Whittle Partnership have been engaged by York Racecourse for quantity surveyor and cost management services for the £10 million Northern End Development. The project was a complex scheme involving a 24 month sectional build programme; high quality buildings for horses, horsemen and racegoers; detailed features including Listed buildings; bespoke structures; and interrelated structural, M&E and construction challenges. What has been delivered is an award winning project which has both transformed this vital area of the venue and raised the bar in terms of sporting facilities on a British racecourse.
Conservation Officer, Wigan Council
In all my dealings with FWP whether their services have been retained by the Council, or when they are representing a private sector client, I have found them to be professional, courteous and able to suitably handle the potential conflict between local authority, the aspirations of clients, whilst balancing this against the statutory planning and listed building control.
