ResoLex announces Clapham Park estate, part of Metropolitan Housing Trust, as the latest client for its ground-breaking project management service RADAR.
Metropolitan Housing Trust has appointed ResoLex and its RADAR early warning project management service on its flagship Clapham Park Regeneration project.
Metropolitan manages over 36,000 affordable homes for rent and sale with over 80,000 customers across London, the East of England and the East Midlands. Clapham Park is a 61-hectare site in the London Borough of Lambeth and is a mix of interwar and post war council housing. The regeneration will include 975 refurbished and 2,480 new homes; new commercial, community, medical, nursery and educational facilities; road improvements; and parks. A full range of tenures will be provided in the new properties, including 960 affordable flats, 1,470 flats for sale and an extra care scheme for the elderly, consisting of 50 flats.
ResoLex has a long history of dispute resolution and mediation services and developed its RADAR (ResoLex; Avoiding Dispute, Avoiding Risk) service to help its clients avoid dispute and therefore costly delays to their projects. The service allows the project manager to have a transparent overview of the project by means of anonymous feedback from all members of the project team. This supports collaborative working and ensures early warning of any issues arising.
Catherine Illingworth, Interim Programme Director, Metropolitan Clapham Park, said: “We are delighted to be working with ResoLex on our programme as its innovative RADAR service will allow us to hear all points of view and address any divergence of opinion on the project early on, and ensure the team is working together for the good of the project. This will save time and money, and will provide us with the reassurance to ensure the best possible service for our residents.”
Ed Moore, Chief Executive, ResoLex, said: “We have been so impressed by the foresight displayed by the Metropolitan Clapham Park management team in embracing truly collaborative working practices to ensure they avoid delays or disputes on their regeneration project. RADAR is a proven solution in identifying early potential trouble spots on major construction projects allowing management teams to resolve them before they escalate.”
