The Oaks, Residential community, Prague

Our first international project; Oaks is a €400 million mixed-use development just outside the city of Prague, Czech Republic.

The purpose of the scheme  was to create a unique new community, deeply connected to the idyllic countryside whilst being close to the busy city of Prague.

Our role was to

  • support the design
  • manage the programme
  • help set-up governance and
  • provide project monitoring in the early stages

Over 14 architectural firms were appointed to work on the scheme, which included

  • 155 family homes and 69 apartments
  • 18-hole PGA golf course, cycle tracks and horse trails 
  • Hotel, spa and wellness centre
  • Country club
  • Amenities including a kindergarten, post office, shops and restaurants 

The whole project needed to include passive design techniques and energy efficient systems. Acclaimed British architect John Pawson designed the renovation of the chateau – an 18th century hunting lodge. The award-winning golf course has already opened and is the first PGA course in the Czech Republic.

The project is due complete in 2022.

Clarkson Alliance has exceeded my expectations in the leadership support they are providing. They don’t just perform the tasks we require but they also ask questions about the business that tests that we are moving in the right direction.

They have been instrumental in getting the programme and costs into shape as well as being a good sounding board. The rounded view of the project they provide is especially useful for a comprehensive community project like Oaks.

I feel confident we are on track to achieve the project objectives.
