NEC3 Option C - Target Cost

With 160,000 passengers passing through the road, rail and ferry link at ‘The Hard’ gateway to Portsmouth every week and numbers set to increase, constructing a state of the art hub was strategically important to keep people moving.

Issue

A tight budget and funding milestones threatened the scheme vision.  It was essential that efficiencies were identified that retained the buildings visual integrity and  quality whilst providing the people of Portsmouth value for money.

With planning and outline design already in place, reducing the cost whilst still meeting the  funding deadlines was a significant challenge.
