Project & Programming


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 & Programming Management

The old cliché is true: time is money. That’s why clients turn to RLB to manage both cost and time. With a deep knowledge of construction techniques, experience working for owners, developers and contractors, and a global database of up-to-the-minute benchmarks, we create bespoke solutions to ensure projects are completed on schedule and on budget.

Pre Contract

We often have clients turn to us when their project is simply sketch or a plan on a page. Our experienced team can:

  • Prepare constructability reports to support feasibility studies
  • Produce development or master programs at the preliminary design stage
  • Design construction programs to determine construction timeframes and staging
  • Enhance migration and office restack programming
  • Prepare staging plans and construction method statements, progress monitoring and reporting, and pre-tender and tender construction programs
  • Improve programming governance with contract programming clauses
  • Review contractors’ tender programs.

Post Contract Audit

Reviewing, monitoring and auditing a contract is a necessary part of any project. RLB’s team helps our clients to reassess the highest risk areas and uncover new opportunities. We can:

  • Review agreements of contractors’ construction programs
  • Audit, monitor and report on progress
  • Provide independent certifier support for financiers
  • Support extension of time claims and litigation
  • Advise on programming, project health checks and recovery planning.

Litigation Support

Construction contracts can be challenging to navigate at the best of times. When problems do arise, you need a skilled, experienced team behind you.

The best outcomes always come from the best people. Our dedicated procurement and contractual advisory team guides clients throughout the project process, providing technical support and considered advice in specialist areas, such as dispute avoidance and resolution, and providing expert witnesses. Our claims preparation and defence experts provide strategic advice, management, negotiation and resolution of claims through adjudication or alternative dispute resolution.

RLB can help you with:

  • Comprehensive claims management
  • Dispute resolution services
  • Scope definition claims appraisal
