Project Management is a widely used term, Castle Gate Projects services can be summarised as: ‘Single estates partner for all projects from concept to handover’

We operate in the education, health and social care estate sectors including specialist accommodation, such as key worker and supported living.

Whether our partners are reconfiguring, refurbishing or developing new buildings, we manage the process from beginning to end. We adopt the core principles of the RIBA Plan of Work to align our services with wider professional team:

We will manage the process from start to finish or just provide selected services – it’s your choice.

 

 

Our aim is to ensure that:

‘Buildings should support, not limit services’ both now and, with flexibility and adaptability, to accommodate service change in the future.

Clients’ project outcomes’ should drive the brief and project plan.

‘Old or new building’  should be, modern, safe, efficient, sustainable and accessible with the lowest whole-life costs

Castle Gate Projects is truly independent. We will ensure that the selection of the design team and contractor achieves the highest quality buildings at the lowest cost.
