St John’s Wood Square

Project Overview

The St John’s Wood Square Project relates to the development of the former St John’s Wood Barracks together with no. 1-7 Queen’s Terrace. The 2.2 hectare site is located in the heart of St John’s Wood between Finchley Road to the west and Primrose Hill to the east and is on the edge of the St John’s Wood Conservation Area.

In May 2011, planning permission was granted by Westminster City Council for a residential scheme. Since that time, St John’s Wood Square Ltd has acquired the site and following a review of the proposals, submitted a revised planning application for the site. The application was approved by Westminster City Council in April 2015. St John’s Wood Square Ltd intends to provide a high quality residential development, which is in keeping with the St John’s Wood area.

The vision is to create a living community for families which can add value to, and be part of, the St John’s Wood locale through :

  • Creating a place where families chose to live
  • Improving the public realm for the enjoyment of all
  • Celebrating and commemorating the heritage of
    the St John’s Wood Barracks

What do we do for this project

Risk on projects is often addressed solely at a technical level, i.e. construction, whereas the areas of projects that most commonly cause problems are the inter-personal and inter-team dynamics, leaving projects at best sub-optimal, at worst in failure.

Combined with an effective traditional risk management process, ResoLex’s RADAR approach improves delivery team engagement and management by giving the programme leadership team an understanding of the differing perceptions of project concern and risk amongst the stakeholder base and enabling a team by team approach to project communication and risk management.

The St Johns Barracks development is a large and complex programme. The ability to monitor risk, and the changing perception of risk across the whole programme will be critical to achieving the optimum outcome.

ResoLex supports the programme with the RADAR system to enable:

  • Enhanced delivery team engagement and management
  • The development of an understanding of human dynamics risk as part of the overall risk management process.
  • Analysis of trends enabling early identification of risks & issues
  • Confidential and anonymised feedback to be included in management information

The value added by the RADAR system is both tangible and nontangible. The tangible benefit is the speed of identification of issues, allowing early corrective action and assessment of whether it has been successful. The nontangible is improved delivery team behaviours contributing to a more successful project outcome.
