But when you are planning, estimating, and sequencing your next project, you need more than knowledge. You also need specialist skills.

Our expertise in construction planning and programming, ensures your project's success.

Address construction project complexity with confidence

Reviewing, monitoring, and auditing a contract is a necessary part of any project – and sometimes you need an extra, expert set of eyes. You may need an audit and report on progress, independent certifier support for financiers, or advice on construction programming, project health checks, and recovery planning. We can help you to reassess your areas of highest risk and move forward with confidence. Our services include developing building construction schedules utilising the critical path method to keep your project on track.
