Consortium Management

Our consortium management service puts in place controls to manage programme, risk, cost, quality and performance. We put the organisational framework in place which binds the whole project team usually from consortia of large residential developers into one efficient unit.

A fundamental aspect of successful consortium management is knowledge of each of our client’s businesses, their goals and aspirations and the ability to translate this into a succinct brief. We provide an analytical approach, identifying and discussing each of the clients’ views and their priorities.

Our consortium management is ‘whole process’ management of major and often complex interdependent projects. Our portfolio includes projects from £0.5 million to £1 billion.

Efficient management of the process is the key to the success of consortium management; particularly when each phase of an interdependent project involves the same stages, and are in themselves interdependent on each other. These include:

  • Project brief / definition
  • Outline design
  • Budget estimate
  • Establish consortium rules
  • Establish build sequence to create street scenes
  • Confirm sales targets
  • Identify public funding
  • Risk analysis and abnormals
  • Identify project’s constraints (such as infrastructure requirements)
  • Design development
  • Final budget
  • Procurement strategy
  • Expenditure / investment authority
  • Tender / procurement and appointment
  • Consultant management
  • Implementation
  • Handover and acceptance
  • Operations and maintenance
  • Close out

We employ experienced staff who have proven ability within their field and a substantial track record of delivery of consortia projects within agreed parameters. Each member of staff has appropriate inter-personal and communication skills to enable the most effective use of resource to achieve the consortium’s goals. We can integrate seamlessly into a consortium structure and adopt your systems and processes where requested.
