Protecting national security with a new, hi-tech GCHQ
When a purpose-designed development was required by Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) in Cheltenham, it was bound to be no ordinary office development. The WMS role encompassed the multi-million pound package of services - mechanical, electrical, public health, ceiling and fire protection - vital to GCHQ because of its reliance on complex mission-critical IT systems. From early concept stage through to successful Client handover, WMS managed the design, installation and commissioning for this prestigious Government facility, essential to national security.
Despite 6 months lost due to late access, the unique WMS approach allowed us to recover the project with an ingenious fast track programme. The complex package of services was safely installed ‘right first time’ and 10 weeks early. The Client realised an early completion bonus and significant savings in the cost of delivering the Engineering Services for this development.
