Building in Resilience, an estates response to Covid-19

If approached in the right way, estate should be a powerful enabler for service delivery, rather than a barrier. Building in Resilience will guide estate managers and commissioners in thinking through key principles, helping to inform robust future-proof estate strategies.

Projects Completed






"As part of the Liverpool City Region One Public Estate (OPE) programme, Sam and her team at gbpartnerships were commissioned to undertake a public sector asset review across the Liverpool and Sefton local authority areas.  This was a major undertaking and the team acted speedily and professionally from the outset, tenaciously engaging with a wide range of public sector stakeholders to source the information required to inform the review (estate strategies, asset lists, service delivery models etc). 


They then analysed this information, appraised and prioritised options, undertook further consultation, facilitated workshops and presented to the OPE Board before producing the final report.  The information in the report is now an invaluable tool in assessing opportunities for public sector estates and service collaboration/co-location across Liverpool City Region.  Many of the opportunities identified are now being taken forward as real world projects delivering significant benefits to the people of Liverpool and Sefton.


I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend gbpartnerships for this kind of work and indeed we are hoping to use them again to roll out the work they did across the rest of Liverpool City Region in the near future."

Clock View, Mental Health Hospital


A new generation of purpose-built inpatient mental health facilities, run by Mersey Care NHS Trust. The facility opened in March 2015, and cost £25 million to build. Clock View will treat local people for a range of mental health issues including depression, anxiety and dementia, providing 80 individual bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, across five wards.


It will also provide the city’s new psychiatric intensive care unit for those most in distress and in need of urgent inpatient care and a base for the Trust’s assessment team, including a mental health act section 136 suite.

Forrest Medical Centre - Third Party Development


Completed in 2015 the £1.75m project combines two GP surgeries into one two storey, 750m2 building providing improved access to primary care and a wider range of services. The centre was developed through agreement directly with the GP’s enabling them to co-locate on one site providing services more efficiently.


Project affordability for the NHS relied on the delivery of the scheme at a low capped rate. Given the small size of the building, this resulted in considerable design and value engineering to optimise capex, further efficiency was required in the funding solution, utilising long-dated fixed rate funding with an assumed residual value. We secured the funding, demonstrated best value and delivered the project on time and within the affordability envelope.
