"St Wilfrid’s Hospice in Eastbourne has been serving the community from a modified Victorian family home for the past 27 years. Demand for our specialist palliative care has been constantly growing and our current facilities are no longer capable of meeting demand. Our research suggested that the early appointment of a competent Project Manager was one of the keys to a successful capital project. We appointed Robinson Low Francis (RLF) before we had found a site. Their systematic approach and professional competence has enabled the early identification of risks and the prompt resolution of problems. They have guided the project and given it momentum and as a result we expect to submit a planning application in spring 2010. This project has been envisioned for over a decade and reserves carefully set aside to prime the project, we cannot afford to make a mistake. The appointment of the Project Manager from RLF at the outset has already proved to be a wise choice."
