The Hyde Group

Blackswan have been retained by Hyde to provide external advice and verification to their Design and Quality Panel, a multi-disciplinary internal panel designed to reduce costs, both long and short term, and increase value and quality on new projects. Blackswan undertakes individual assessments on every Hyde project, providing detailed market and demographic data and recommending design changes for a better whole life cost and value.

Since 2013, Blackswan have reviewed over 90 projects, and in 2014 alone initiated recommendations which produced cost and value improvements to Hyde of over £10 million. These KPIs were also then useful in the HCA’s Value for Money assessment of Hyde for 2014.
