Project and Programme Success


Our dedicated team supports the delivery of complex projects and programmes that meet core objectives and protect client interests.

Project and Programme Management

We have reimagined how we deliver projects and programmes to achieve successful outcomes for our clients. Placing client needs and project drivers at the core, our team works closely with stakeholders to meet time, cost and quality requirements, whilst maintaining predictability and rigour at every stage.

Strategic Programme Management

We create an environment for our clients and their supply chains to deliver successful programme outcomes.

The traditional view of programme management is an extension of project management where multiple projects are managed in a coordinated way to deliver a set outcome. However, where project management is typically focused on performance, in terms of quality, cost and time, programme management operates more on a strategic level to create synergies and deliver a package of benefits through the co-ordinated management of multiple workstreams.

A collaborative approach between programme and project management enables effective stakeholder management, the coordination and adaptation of the programme to business changes as well as adjusting to risks and issues as they arise. These aspects, where managed effectively, will positively contribute to the performance of the programme and the delivery of the business case benefits. Programme management requires an approach that takes a broader strategic perspective and full advantage of modern digital tools to deliver the synergies that come from end-to-end programme visibility.

Our expert team specialises in designing and delivering end-to-end programmes within the built environment. We can assess and overhaul distressed programmes, conducting programme assurance reviews to ensure that benefits are delivered, risks are managed effectively and that lessons are learned for the future.

Design and Development Management

Development requires assessing the optimum solution, team leadership and risk management to meet the strategic objectives of the occupier and owner. With a thorough understanding of our client’s requirements, we have the means to successfully add value and deliver positive outcomes within a challenging climate.

Risk Management

Quantifying and managing risk is fundamental to delivering a project on time and on budget.

We will advise the project team on strategies for identifying and minimising specific risks, together with appropriate levels of cost, and a methodology for managing risks within the identified levels. We apply probabilistic risk assessment techniques to support risk management.

Construction and Procurement Management

Selecting the correct procurement strategy for a project is key to commercial success. Based on the client’s principal objectives in relation to cost certainty, quality of design, workmanship and programme, we can undertake a review of these objectives and provide recommendations in relation to the optimum procurement strategy to best achieve these objectives.

Selecting the most appropriate contractor or supplier is equally important. We can evaluate the most suitable contractor/supplier for a project based upon scope, content, complexity, procurement and the need for specialist knowledge and innovative thinking.

We undertake preparation of tender and contract documents, which provide full details of the project requirements and clearly identify responsibility for risks. Undertaking a detailed tender analysis ensures both compliance with the tender requirements and parity between the bids.
