Sheffield Hallam University Creates New Delivery Model Alongside CBRE

Sheffield Hallam University Creates New Delivery Model Alongside CBRE
09 June 2020 | Updated 01 July 2020
 

Sheffield Hallam University has created a first of its kind delivery model which aims to inspire industry change.

The Hallam Alliance is a new construction industry procurement and delivery model, with the involvement of three of its partner suppliers: Arup (design-led consultancy), BAM (construction) and CBRE.

The alliance is the first of its kind in the UK for a university building programme.

 

“Having FM services involved from the outset provides the opportunity for operational and user needs to shape design and construction helping to ensure smoother handover of buildings, improved quality and performance and the reduction of in-use costs and user issues, creating the best possible user experience.”

Daniel Vaughan

Director, CBRE

 

£220million Campus Plan

 

The alliance’s first project will be phase one of the university’s campus plan, due to start in June 2020. The work involves renovating the atrium of the Owen Building. 

Sheffield Hallam University’s campus plan sets out a 20-year development framework for the Sheffield Hallam estate. The first phase could see £220million invested over the next five years and will focus on the University’s city centre estate.

It will see the creation of a sustainable campus featuring new buildings and green spaces between Sheffield Station and Arundel Gate. It includes new buildings with teaching facilities and staff workplaces for the Sheffield Business School (SBS) and Social Sciences which will be surrounded by outdoor spaces.

The design and construction will be managed by the Hallam Alliance, with Mace and Fulcrum providing scheme and programme management services.   

According to the official press release, the model aims to reform the way major projects are created and designed. The partnership shares profits and losses so that its incentives and goals are aligned from the outset and throughout the project.

 

NEC4 Alliance Contract

 

The Hallam Alliance is one of the first adopters of the new NEC4 Alliance Contract, a new type of contract designed for use on major projects where longer term collaborative ways of working can be created. 

According to Fenwick Elliott, UK’s largest law firm specialising in construction and energy law, the NEC4 Alliance Contract describes itself as a “true alliancing contract” because all the parties involved sign up to the same single contract.

The Hallam Alliance will operate under a clear governance structure (missing from most traditional delivery methods), with formal cooperative boards which require unanimous agreement, making decisions on issues on a "best for project" basis.

 

“A Unique Opportunity”

 

Daniel Ladbury, Director of Estates and Facilities at Sheffield Hallam University, said: “The agreement of the Alliance contract marks the culmination of over two years of hard work the university has led on to challenge the industry to deliver better buildings.

"The Hallam Alliance provides a unique opportunity as we look to the future in these challenging times to create a high performing and efficient estate that provides fantastic places for students, staff and visitors to learn, collaborate, and innovate whilst enabling us to continually learn and improve.”   

Daniel Vaughan, Director at CBRE, said:  “Having FM services involved from the outset provides the opportunity for operational and user needs to shape design and construction helping to ensure smoother handover of buildings, improved quality and performance and the reduction of in-use costs and user issues, creating the best possible user experience.”
