Faithful & Gould monitoring services process -preliminary work on strategy

Identification of the correct delivery strategy underpins project success. With the right strategy from the outset, overall project delivery can be more effectively managed. Despite this, across the Middle East and Africa we see the use of off-the-shelf solutions with little or no tailoring between projects.

At Faithful+Gould we recognise that each project and client is unique, and necessitates a unique project delivery strategy. Very often we find that clients don’t know which questions to ask themselves at project outset. However, our team has the experience to work with clients from a very early stage, to identify the project parameters and determinants.

Typically, this early planning stage will take several weeks, during which we conduct a thorough review and analysis of the delivery options, eventually producing an optimum bespoke delivery strategy. Our experience shows that the earlier we’re involved, the more value we can add to the project.

We begin by obtaining a detailed understanding of our client’s requirements, structuring a clear brief that captures the project aims and objectives. We then take a detailed look at the following :

What are the client’s aspirations?

In terms of programme duration, what is realistic in this location and in the current market

What are the budgetary constraints?

What is the best way to design the project within budget from the outset, and ensure it stays within budget?

What is the client’s attitude towards risk?

What are the most cost-effective and operationally satisfactory options for allocation/mitigation of risks? 

Is the supply chain capable of delivering the project utilising the procurement strategy ? 

Does the supply chain have an appetite to deliver this project?

How can we incorporate best-practice supply chain relationship management?

We add further value by building on these fundamentals, using a best-practice matrix comparison of the different contracting options available, followed by a high-level analysis of why we’re recommending a particular strategy.

Gathering the above information gives us the best opportunity to identify the correct strategy for our clients. Our suggested delivery strategy will always consider what is in the client’s best interests. And when the delivery strategy is central, right from the start of the project, progress will be more effective, with project success more likely to follow.

Gardiner & Theobald is an independent construction and property consultancy working across all sectors of the built environment. We focus on minimising risk and creating opportunities to maximise the value of our clients’ developments and property assets.

Gardiner & Theobald's consultancy work includes the Tideway Project, constructing London’s super sewer to modernize the sewage network which is a key piece of infrastructure that makes London work. The tunnel will capture the flows of storm sewage from 34 sewer overflow points along the River Thames and will run approximately 25km through the heart of London, and up to 65m beneath the River Thames, broadly following the path of the river. This will be the biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the UK water industry.The tunnel is being built from 24 construction sites along the River Thames and is due to go into operation in 2024.

The construction of the Lee Tunnel will help tackle the discharge of up to 16 million tonnes of untreated sewage which is discharged into the River Thames via Abbey Mills combined sewer overflow into the River Lee.

The works comprise a 7.2m internal diameter storage/transfer tunnel approximately 6.9km long from Abbey Mills Pumping Station to Beckton Sewage Treatment Works between 65m and 74m deep and initially included the construction of two 25m and one 20m internal diameter shafts and an off-line Tideway Pumping Station Shaft, which is 38m in diameter. Twin overflow culverts will be constructed out into the River at Beckton. The works also include all MEICA works required to intercept, control and pump out flow for treatment.

Subsequently an additional reception shaft and short connection tunnel to Lee Tunnel Shaft F was constructed at Abbey Mills. These works were undertaken on behalf of Tideway as the original proposal would have meant a prolonged shutdown of the Lee Tunnel which would be more expensive and contain more safety risks. Agreement for this was done in conjunction with Tideway and the industry regulator OFWAT.

This £160M major new facility will import and store biomass fuel (wood pellet) for onward tranfer to Drax Power Station.

Once completed the 11.5 acre facility will be a fully automated bulk-handling terminal and through its 100,000 tonne storage capacity will handle three million tonnes of fuel per year.
