Rutland Mills, Wakefield Waterfront
We advised Wakefield Metropolitan District Council to develop their outline proposals for these redundant mill buildings at Wakefield Waterfront. The proposals were established with a developer partner in place working up detailed designs and costings. We worked with the Council and the developer to work up the detail from the outline business case, identifying and appraising options resulting in a clear and justifiable business case. We reviewed the outline proposals put forward acting as ‘critical friend’ to identify and address the strengths and weaknesses of the bid. We then provided an authorship role for the bid ensuring that the best case was put forward and supported them in the ongoing dialogue with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority providing a more detailed and updated economic case through our partners Genecon.
