Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London

Restoration, Alteration and Refurbishment of Former Royal Naval College Buildings to form a New University Campus in Greenwich, London.
The University of Greenwich took a strategic decision in the mid 1990’s to consolidate their estate on fewer sites and to establish a high profile new campus in Greenwich Town Centre.
An opportunity arose to negotiate long leases on three principal buildings in the Old Royal Naval College, each of which are Scheduled Ancient Monuments and Grade 1 Listed, together with the adjoining Dreadnought Building (Grade II Listed) which are suitable for conversion into a range of teaching rooms, lecture theatres, staff and office accommodation and a learning resources centre.  In order to be successful, it was however necessary at a very early stage to prepare a robust business case and to convince a multitude of stakeholders of the strength of their proposals and ability to successfully deliver the project.
Fanshawe were appointed in 1995 to produce the cost model and to work with a team to develop the conversion proposals and development strategy.  Negotiations were successfully concluded with the Greenwich Foundation in 1998 and Fanshawe appointed to project manage the £40m development with phased completion during 2001. 
Fanshawe developed the business case to secure major funding from HEFCE and the Heritage Lottery Fund and the campus is now in operation with over 6,500 students.
