Project delivery presents major risks and challenges for all sectors. Through our non-legal project advice we help clients understand and navigate the challenging terrain of their projects to deliver stronger outcomes. This can be done either in conjunction with, or independently of, our specialist legal service.
Our advice is tailored to the needs across an entire project, or at any stage of the project lifecycle from feasibility, acquisition, planning, development, expansion, ongoing performance management and/or disposal of assets.
Drawing on our experience across all sectors for all business types, we have insight to the forefront of industry challenges, business performance and project success on a daily basis. Having the appropriate resources, governance structures, policies, processes and systems in place supported by the appropriate level of oversight and control is critical to our clients’ success.
Key challenges regularly faced include project size and complexity, resourcing relevant project experience, quality of project reporting, information and systems, and complexity of governance requirements impacting project decision making and approvals. Other potential impacts are ineffective detection and prevention of cost and schedule overruns, inadequate project controls, business case preparation, gateway reviews, policies, procedures and systems for project implementation.
Our Project Advisory service provides robust, evidence based and forward thinking strategies for managing challenges like these.
Some key areas include business case preparation and reviews, cost benefit analysis, policy and regulatory framework reviews and advisory, project prioritisation and selection guidance, schedule integrity/risk reviews and Monte Carlo analysis.
Further, our assistance covers investment decision support, contracting strategy, advisory and review, tender and bid evaluation advice, risk assessment and analysis covering macro and micro level risks, including contractual risk allocation and risk allowances (schedule and cost). Additionally our expertise extends to project governance structure advice, team capacity and capability assessments, commercial oversight during delivery and construction, assessment of reporting integrity, and post-implementation and hand over compliance reviews.
We advise all levels of government, financiers, consultants, owners and contractors on a range of commercial, residential, transport, infrastructure, health, education, information and technology projects across Australia and internationally.
