Laying the foundations for a fruitful partnership
Morgan Sindall Investments is a leading UK construction and regeneration business with a turnover of £2.2 billion, employing more than 8,000 people and operating in the public and commercial sectors. Its offering comprises affordable housing, construction, fit-out, infrastructure services, investments, professional services and urban regeneration.
LLPR was appointed to support Morgan Sindall Investment’s bid for the regeneration of Bournemouth Town Centre. Morgan Sindall had a very low awareness and profile in the area and required a fast track route to positioning itself as the best partner for Bournemouth Borough Council.
As a result of stakeholder engagement work instigated by LLPR, including direct one-to-one introductions with key stakeholders, MSI successfully reached preferred bidder status within eight months and was ultimately appointed. We know that the key relationships we forged on their behalf resulted in endorsements by these major players – and ultimately played a part in the local authority choosing Morgan Sindall as the most effective partner.
The new partnership organisation is now called Bournemouth Development Company and is developing more than 16 council assets as part of a major Bournemouth regeneration programme. We also provided event support for the launch of its first development, The Citrus Building in Bournemouth town centre.
