Client Advice

Assisting clients in producing a robust Brief is a key activity that must be undertaken accurately if construction related projects are to be successful. The brief is often complex and therefore a strategy for providing overview, filtering and dissemination of information is of paramount importance if development risk is to be managed effectively. Ensuring the delivery team is appropriately engaged and ‘on-message’ in terms of the clients expectations is key.
