Optimizing the relationship between quality and cost, as well as quality and time.

Commercial Success

Schedules are the backbone of every project and managing a well-run schedule can take a lot of time. Time is money, and delays and budget overruns are inevitable without investing in a well-designed and managed schedule. Whether for an entire portfolio or a program, successful management of those schedules involves constant updates and analysis of potential risks, impacts, and delays. When working with clients on schedules, our goal is to afford clients the level of certainty they need to make informed timing decisions, ensuring their projects’ commercial success.

Affording clients the level of certainty they need to make informed timing decisions

Achieving commercial success depends on optimizing the balance between quality, cost, and time. Our team of specialists is skilled in identifying challenges before they arise and providing solutions to help mitigate the risk of a jeopardized schedule or compromised budget.

Stress test your project vision

Doing your upfront due diligence to stress test your project’s vision helps to pave the way for a more informed decision-making process. It could be confirming something as simple as the return on capital cost or a more detailed cash flow feasibility, but whatever your needs, RLB can provide independent advice and innovative approaches to help you set your project down the right path, all while exploring possible, ‘what if’ scenarios and finding the best approach for commercial success.

Fresh perspectives bring fresh ideas

While you are focused on successfully managing your project, it’s hard to also be proactively looking for ways to make it even better. RLB can be that fresh perspective for you, even engaging your project team through workshops encouraging collaboration and creative thinking. With our laser focus on working to make sure you see commercial success, you can uncover new ideas and savings that go straight to your bottom line.

Make the right decisions the first time

Construction is complex, and so are the decisions that you need to make. Having an experienced team with “been there, done that” experience gives you the confidence that you deliver your project on budget and on time. At RLB, we have a global cost database and powerful software right at our fingertips, so we can support your team with accurate and detailed cost estimates and schedules, leaning on our experience with some of the world’s best projects.

Delivering a new casino in the heart of the West Valley entertainment and sport district

At Rider Levett Bucknall, we aim to create exceptional experiences for our communities. One of the ways we do this is by aligning our capability with client needs.

Our efforts, in conjunction with Summit Project Management, resulted in the successful delivery of a new casino in the heart of the West Valley entertainment and sport district.
