We offer the following professional services within the infrastructure engineering, design and construction sector;
Primavera trained planners, who develop and then lead project schedules
We offer Primavera (and Microsoft Project) trained Senior Planners. Our planners are not just data processors, they are technically trained to build baseline schedules and then manage them throughout the different project phases. Our planners not only meet clients needs, they provide a service that allows large and complex projects to be delivered to time, incorporating change management, variation management and development of scenario plans to achieve this.
Our planners deliver the following:
Build and develop baseline schedules - for both sales & project delivery
Proactively manage and lead the schedule - updating the schedule, understanding delays & impacts, mitigating delays to critical paths
Implement contractual requirements - change management, client requirements etc.
Develop other planners/planning teams and mentor junior planners
Our planners have experience on projects ranging from £500k - £750m. Our planners also have experience in mentoring and teaching junior staff (including development of planning rules/policies) to assist your business.
Bid/Tendering Advisory Services
Experienced and successful bid leads, with the knowledge on how to successfully tender
In an industry where Clients must continuously demonstrate value for money from their suppliers, procurement exercises have become increasingly frequent and complex in an attempt to assess the future real costs of employing a supplier and select those who can provide added value through offering a new approach to Sustainability, EDI, Ethical behaviours etc.
We offer services to clients, assisting them with developing procurement methods and processes to allow them to successfully and efficiently procure the services that they want. We advise clients about the best way to design procurement processes in order to maximise value while delivering on Clients' objectives and aspirations. In our experience, the key is to identify ways to align Client and Supplier incentives so that a truly collaborative working environment can be forged.
We also offer bid writing services for suppliers. We have gained significant experience developing compelling tenders for the delivery of professional services in the Infrastructure Sector and so are well placed to provide advice and support to suppliers in ensuring their quality offering exceeds Clients' expectations.
Business development, including relationship building and margin expansion
We offer business development services; we can come and help you to develop your business and frameworks to increase profit, margin and sales. We have a proven track record of successfully growing and delivering large frameworks and projects within the infrastructure sector.
Expert business managers and leaders, at a Senior Level
We offer our financial acumen and expertise, gained over many years of running successful businesses, to help organisations enhance their financial performance with particular attention to key metrics such as Gross and Net Profits, Working Capital, Gearing, Funding Structure etc.
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) perform a key role within the Infrastructure Sector driving innovation, offering bespoke high quality services locally to their clients and revitalising local communities.
The Government has pledged to spend £1 in every £3 on SMEs by 2022. However, current procurement strategies tend to favour large organisations, leaving SMEs exposed to the unfavourable commercial arrangements of a Tier 2 or 3 supplier.
