The Denmark Hill Station Enhancement project was a true example of successful integration and collaborative working. A job which historically should have taken around five years from initial concept to completion, was condensed into 30 months, all against the backdrop of a global pandemic, and is testament to the commitment, enthusiasm and cooperation of all the teams involved.
The pandemic further added to the complications of an extremely tight deadline. A new way of working was established, Weekly meetings were conducted via Zoom, meaning all contributors could attend meetings as they were not required on site. This had a positive impact on timings and cost, but also allowed for issues to be resolved quickly and collaboratively.
From the outset all parties involved were enthusiastic and dedicated to delivering this unique project – ‘the first carbon positive station in Europe’, on time, on budget and to a high standard.
Three Winning Facts:

- The creation and development of strong, positive client/collaborator relationships which have resulted in the suc-cessful delivery of a multi-million-pound project, and the commissioning of further work from the client.
- The utilisation of existing, cost-effective technologies (Teams/Zoom) to build collaborative relationships which formed the backbone of the delivery of a innovative and sustainable multi-million pound scheme on time, under budget and to a high standard.
