Project & Programme Success


Bringing imagination to life in a rapidly-evolving construction industry means staying ahead of the curve. We use the latest project planning techniques and advanced technology to create tailored, truly bespoke solutions.

Project & Programme Management

In these changing times – economically, technologically and environmentally – having a robust project management strategy in place is more essential than ever before. Understanding the ever-evolving factors influencing each project, including the impact of technology, innovative ways of working as well as environmental issues, is vital.

We offer robust project management strategies and services with highly experienced teams that can get to the heart of a project quickly and advise on the impact of these changes on your project from inception to completion. With experience across project governance, planning and scheduling, contract administration, financial and risk management and cross-disciplinary communication, we assess challenges and deliver across all stages including feasibility, design procurement, construction and handover.

Having worked on a wide variety of both public and private sector projects, we recognise that different sectors and different clients have varying needs. We support clients using expertise and skills to offer tailored services to meet individual project needs and provide best practice solutions.

Project Management

RLB’s project management philosophy concentrates on generating proactive performance from the project team, and on achieving value for money in terms of design, quality, and function. Implementation of the philosophy is through teamwork, with individual specialists galvanised into a cohesive unit, united by a common mission and shared vision.

At RLB, the project manager acts as a catalyst, establishing a culture that encourages and stimulates the interests and creativity of all those connected with the project. Emphasis is placed on maximising integration and synergy of people, and enhancing communication and promoting partnership, to ensure that results are delivered on time, within budget, and to an acceptable quality.

Once the client’s goals and objective are clearly understood, the team develops a strategic project plan. Defining contractual relationships and responsibilities, outlining schedules and budgets, and identifying appropriate methods and procedures, this document acts as a roadmap for effective implementation of the project.

Control measures and benchmarking keep the RLB team informed on the status of the project. Periodic formal reviews alert the team to any emerging risks, allowing them to be managed before they compound and compromise the project.

Project Monitoring

With a project of any size it is important that businesses ensure they get robust, useful advice which identifies and helps mitigate potential risks that might arise during the full project cycle. These risks must be continually appraised to ensure that a funder’s financial exposure does not exceed the value of securities held.

Our expert project monitoring support begins early in the process, in the form of initial technical due diligence prior to the agreement of funding and progress reporting through the construction phase. We also assess the quality of the assets that a client is developing, by advising on whole-life costing, which helps safeguard the long-term value of the investment.

We have had a long-term collaboration with RLB for our real estate investments business. Their professional advice has helped us during all stages of our investment process.
