Future Cities Forum is delighted that Director of Capital Projects at the Government Property Agency (GPA), Clive Anderson, will be speaking at our Manchester 'Levelling up' event this June.
Clive Anderson has 30 years experience in the industry and has significant experience delivering for commercial clients, and latterly within the Department of Work and Pensions. Clive has led complex, large-scale infrastructure and property development programmes across the UK and overseas. He will continue to drive forward GPA’s delivery of the Government Hubs and Whitehall Campus Programmes, as well as leading its design standards to deliver a smaller, better and greener Public Estate.
Clive said: “I am delighted to take up the role of Director of Capital Projects. It draws upon all my skills and experience to deliver perhaps the most significant office development and transformation programme in the UK. It also offers the chance to undertake a career-defining role supporting growth across the UK through investment in a sustainable and value-for-money Government estate.”
In November, the GPA announced it was recruiting for more than 100 roles to support the delivery of its essential role as part of key Government initiatives – such as the Levelling Up agenda and Net Zero initiative. The GPA also manages more than 880,000 square metres of offices in all parts of the United Kingdom on behalf of Government departments. The GPA is an executive agency of the Cabinet Office formed in 2018. It is responsible for delivering the Government’s property agenda across its office and warehouse portfolios, and also provides guidance on workplace services including design, technology, sustainability, and the customer experience.
In addition to the Government’s Hubs Programme, the GPA has a crucial role in Civil Service Reform and the Government’s Net Zero initiative. It is pioneering best practice as it offers guidance and leads by example in delivering sustainability across the Government’s office portfolio.
