Analyse, assess and manage risk & uncertainties in projects to address common challenges.

We help organisations predict, assess and manage risks and uncertainties on major projects to enhance the likelihood of success throughout the project and asset lifecycle.

Major infrastructure and capital projects in today’s economy are complicated, fast-paced, exposed to substantial risks and uncertainties, and are carried out in an environment prone to fraud and waste. The wide range of stakeholders are expecting greater transparency, predictability and accountability for project performance and delivering outcomes.

Public and private organisations developing and delivering major projects and/or maintaining infrastructure assets, need to plan proactively to address common industry challenges, including:

  • accurate assessment of project risks and uncertainties, resulting in appropriate risk allocation in contracts by using the most suitable disclaimer clauses
  • approaches to identify and mitigate optimism and pessimism biases to increase the accuracy of project cost and schedule estimates
  • more applications of risk engineering techniques and quantitative risk analysis methodologies rather than traditional merely qualitative risk assessment
  • efficient and effective use of new technologies, e.g. Building Information Modelling (BIM) 4D and 5D, and historical data analytics to drive performance
  • assessment of project confidence indicators quantitatively during the project’s delivery phase rather than traditional project controls reports
  • transparent and proactive management of project contingencies (both time and cost).
