Working closely with Edwards Lifesciences, we carefully studied the project criteria and list of potential buildings to find the best opportunity. Using our in depth-knowledge of the local market, as well as key strategic and financial analysis, we helped our client to create a shortlist of opportunities.
We assisted the entire process, from site and construction negotiations to the delivery of a tailor-made building, at cost and on time. Signing the purchase agreement to protect Edwards Lifesciences interests, we ensured a comprehensive purchase contract that addressed the land purchase, a fixed price construction cost and a delivery deadline. It was important to ensure that Edwards Lifesciences could develop and modify their new building up to the last minute. SPGI provided project management support to oversee both the design and construction processes by the architects and contractors to meet the specific requirements of Edwards Lifesciences. We constantly coordinated the different partners to ensure satisfactory solutions for our client.
We ensured this building would be have the highest architectural standards and include amenities such as a state of the art auditorium, café and kitchen. The auditorium was designed to meet both employee and professional training needs, with the technology to link to operating theatres and laboratories around the world.
