Project Overview

Pick Everard are Project Managing the Old Square Shopping Centre redevelopment in Walsall Town Centre, with Morgan Sindall appointed to deliver the works. The multi-million pound project is set to improve the 54,000 square feet area by demolishing the former Tesco supermarket building, and creating units to house Primark, Co-op and other leading brand names.

Increasing the mix of high-street names and adding to Walsall’s number of indoor shopping areas, this development is set to create 150 jobs in the local area, as well as increase the supply chain opportunities coming into Walsall.

This project is the first in the regeneration scheme to transform Walsall Town Centre.

How did Sypro help?

Using the Contract Manager software, Wallsall Council have been successfully managing the costs and timescales of the project. The Contract Manager software has become an integral part of the project and has allowed the quick and simple administration of early warning and compensation events.

It allowed for the transparency of data and information, which meant all parties were kept up to date of any project changes which could have affected the cost or timescales.

Sypro Contract Manager was also used in our clients’ weekly project management meetings to discuss relevant updates with their project team.

The Old Square shopping centre project is progressing very well and we are on target for time and costs. Sypro Contract Manager has proven to be a very useful tool that has become a central part of the project. Not only has it helped us in terms of administration of Early Warnings and Compensation events, but also helps us to manage Project Manager Instructions and keep on top of the budget. We use Sypro in our weekly project management meetings to manage all aspects of the contract.
