Bridging the gap between your boardroom and projects
Our Project Assurance team has a deep rooted understanding of the construction and built environment. Our team has reviewed over 1,000 projects in different countries and has provided services to real estate owners, infrastructure developers, and contractors.
The built environment has experienced a tremendous flux in the Middle East. The success of any construction programme is rooted in the development of a ‘project organization’ that applies effective policies, procedures, processes, systems and tools to drive financial, management, and contractual excellence by programme participants.
Our project management professionals have extensive experience assessing capital project risks, assessing contractor and supplier quality and reliability, assessing project planned versus actual cost analysis, planning and scheduling activities, schedule and delay analysis, project risk assessments, project risk management, cash flow projections, as well as the other aspects of construction projects such as project and programme management. Our enterprise advisory and project management professionals understand the challenges and the technical issues that are encountered by our clients in performing their projects, and have developed and implemented proprietary tools, systems and processes to provide bespoke solutions to improve and streamline performance.
Our professionals offer an actionable plan - not just ideas - to get our clients projects and businesses back to maximum operating performance by assisting them with the following services:
