Managing the Largest Construction Estate in Europe


This paper explains how estate land and property is successfully managed throughout the life of a major construction project.

It will briefly touch on the control measures used to track, record and account for a change of contract activity over a large footprint in excess of 5 million square metres.

It will summarise how custodianship is updated and presented to ensure every square metre is captured and controlled and clarify the basic principles of estates management akin to major construction activity and what precautions, provisions and budget items should be included.

This paper is designed to help those engaged on major construction projects with a large array of varied contractor activity over several phases of operation.
