There was the renovation of all branches in Roehamptom University, QAHE; such as the Holborn Centre, London Centre, and Birmingham Centre. There was also the renovation of all business and computing centres excluding the Manchester Centre. The refurbishment and reconstruction of the place have been temporarily suspended over the past few years because of insufficient funds. Regardless, private stakeholders have always been interested in the project. There would, therefore, be the injection of both public and private funds to fully exploit all the available resources.
The Project Initiation Development (PID) studies the project’s feasibility of improving the spaces available for international business students through the refurbishment and redevelopment of the existing Manchester, QAHE’s Business Section. Space would also then become available to students from the European Union and the United Kingdom after the institution partnering with London Metropolitan University with an increase in the number of seats.
The project shall involve the construction of tiered seating that can be retracted, alongside the designing of acoustic panels on the walls to enhance teaching space in QAHE’s Manchester Centre branch.
The project would allow for the creation of around 1400 job opportunities for those who would be involved in the designing of the acoustic panels and constructors of tiered seating. The place has the capability of enhancing the physical local landscape and comfortability and morale among the business students. The project would also enable the management to provide the latest technological tools and materials necessary for the business students for better learning and performance.
The projected challenges would be noise pollution during the construction for students in buildings near the site, the timing of several funding sources, and partner agreements.
The PID will assume that there is available private and public funding to inflate money for redevelopment, cooperation among partners, there has been the creation of reconfiguration plans, and both private and public support
There is a need to adhere to the key staff who involves the Committee, team leader, team member, project manager, and stakeholders as they contribute towards the successful implementation of the project.
Stakeholder analysis, which is a framework that includes power, contribution, and interests’ dimensions; guides the project team to know when to balance the power, contribution, and interests between the stakeholders and the project team of the school management (Gan, 2014, pp. 2). Stakeholder analysis makes sure that project successes like social model framework, salience model, and interest matrix are at per with both parties in such that they come into an agreement (Gan, 2014, pp. 2).
The table below provides a summary of the anticipated costs during the start of the implementation phase. The costs are prone to alter in the future. The total budget is 100,000 pounds

Project control involves holding meetings, conducting quality control exercises, monitoring work progress, reacting to changes, and issue management. The reason for having meetings is to analyse and reassign the team’s responsibilities, inform the team of the current project’s team’s status, and provide guidance.
According to Portny, (2017, pp. 51) meetings enable stakeholders to be involved in the entire project. The quality control process involves developing a standardized review schedule that determines the timings for handling a particular stage, assigns analysts who will conduct quality control procedures, including the project’s roles and objectives, and inform stakeholders after the completion of the control procedures.
The monitoring of the work progress involves noting the task performance information, gauging the remaining expenses, capture any expenses from the non-staff, offer inspiration to team members, and take corrective initiatives to get rid of performance problems. The manager should review and access change requests through assigning requests for the changes to the team members, develop an action strategy for executing the changes, and define the execution time for every change.
Issue management incorporates determining and developing problem logs, which specify the problems, evaluate the effect of the problems on the cost, schedule, and scope; determine the ways of resolving the issues, accessing, correcting, and agreeing to recommendations concerning how to manage the problems, and monitoring the progress of the resolved issues.
The project will involve local partners, including the government. There would be the implementation of the Strategic Land, Construction, and Designing Committee to oversee the designation of development partners, including the project’s implementation. The Committee would also determine the dissemination of benefits and costs among the invested parties.

Work Breakdown Structure
WBS can manage tasks in the sense that tasks that should have been completed on time, would manage to do so, including also on time. WBS enables one to be responsible for, in case, the incompletion of certain tasks. The critical analysis would assist in determining how long one would take to finish a project
