We directed the remobilisation of the £40m conventional manufacturing facility with robust design requirements and management controls to secure confidence in delivery for the Business.
The Atomic Weapons Establishment is responsible for delivering the Trident Missile programme on behalf of the Ministry of Defence, with Project Phoenix, a £40m conventional manufacturing facility, critical to the delivery of the programme. Due to a strategic funding review of all capital projects this project had been suspended for some 2 years and was now being released with available funding.
The project had to be re-mobilised with a reformed project team, stakeholders to be engaged and the scope to be revisited to ensure the requirements remained in line with Business objectives.
We initiated a thorough audit of the original business case requirements and identified a shortfall against those now required some 2 years later. These were reconciled against the Business Case and additional funding approvals and authorisations obtained. The project team was reassembled and controls established to manage the programme, cost, change and risk.
In restructuring the requirements and management controls, confidence was provided to the Business of the project’s successful delivery.
