Paul Street

Rame Consulting Limited was appointed by Reining Limited to act as Project Manager for the development of Paul Street East Student Accommodation. The client entity was a joint venture between McLaren Properties and Apache Capital Partners. The Rame role included the review of existing site reports and the identification of additional site investigations needed to complete pre purchase technical Due Diligence. The role then extended into the management of the appointment of the design team, the discharge of pre commencement planning conditions, the amendment of the planning permission to meet the needs of the developed design, the development of tender stage information, procurement of the works through a Design and Build Contract, and acting as client project manager throughout the delivery process. The key to success was the need to manage a large number of third party issues with the site; including 44 party wall awards, obtaining scaffold and oversailing licenses, and the relocation of a network substation on site during construction whilst maintaining 100% capacity into the local High Voltage (HV) network.

Sustainability features include PV and Gas fired CHP.

The success of the scheme was dependent upon the careful management of a number of third party issues including the removal and replacement of a network substation, a large number of party wall awards, scaffold licenses and oversailing agreements.

The scheme included a significant amount of high quality amenity space including areas for study, a gym and extensive garden areas.
The scheme provided a diverse range of rooms for students including studios, twodios, and two bedroom apartments.
