From understanding the requirement, developing solution concepts, and delivering initial economic and feasibility studies through to defining and implementing engineering design, construction, commissioning, handover and operation, we support our clients at every step.
Infrastructure and built environment projects are increasingly complex and expectations from government, industry and society are rising. Projects and programmes must be delivered with ever increasing efficiency, in both time and money, with enhanced sustainability and a zero tolerance for unsafe and unhealthy practice.
Successful delivery depends on understanding and overcoming challenges around governance, risk, scope control, stakeholder engagement and the capability of the team. Our project and programme managers have the leadership and experience to address these challenges in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world: we aim to exceed our clients' expectations.
We approach all assignments without preconceptions, developing a detailed understanding of the requirement for the proposed project or programme, how it meets your business needs and will deliver benefits. Our background as a multidisciplinary engineering and consultancy company means we can draw on best practice from across the sector in delivering clients’ required outcomes.
We work as members of integrated project and programme teams, always seeking to align the people and organisations involved behind a common purpose. Our project managers constantly check that we are focusing on the right things and that we are doing them in the right way. This includes having the appropriate project and programme management tools, tailored to the needs of the client and the task, and being able to provide timely and accurate information to support decision making.
We have extensive experience of providing a total project and programme management service for all types of building, education, healthcare, transport, energy, defence, nuclear, oil and gas and water projects. Our award-winning project teams plan, lead and control every aspect of the project lifecycle. They pride themselves on providing a tailored service, bringing innovation to help our clients establish options, define their project needs and manage project delivery – we are our clients’ trusted advisor.
Our experience shows that good control processes and systems positively influence project and programme outcomes. Clear and concise project and programme management information allows complexity and unforeseen factors to be better managed and managers to make better decisions. We deliver strategic management information; data that aids leaders in assessing a project or programme situation and potential outcomes.
Across related projects our programme management experts identify and manage the interdependencies, providing the right level of governance to address complexity, risk and conflicting priorities and resources. They will establish a control framework that divides the programme up into manageable components. Effective commercial and cost management are essential if a client is to make informed decisions and control costs.
We adopt a proactive, flexible approach to cost management, allowing us to manage the team and react to and embrace changes that may arise throughout the design and construction phases of a project or programme. We stress test design solutions and constructively challenge designers to ensure clients get the best value solution.
