Essential to delivering projects on time, to the required quality and on budget, project controls are at the core of our input an ensure that the client is achieving the necessary return on investment . Established at the outset, and reviewed on a regular basis, the controls form the basis of the criteria for our reporting which provides accurate information on risk, programme, cost and performance.
Project risks require identification and mitigation throughout the process to avoid issues being detrimental to it’s success. Collins McKay applies a robust approach to risk management using dedicated tools and clear lines of communication. Risk reporting is undertaken on a regular basis giving clients confidence in the project’s financial status and performance.
Project Management in action
Working with Associated British Foods Plc, Collins McKay has led the project to revitalise a portfolio of surplus property located throughout the UK.
Acquisitions, disposals and consolidation of businesses over the past 20 years created a mixed portfolio of retail units which offered an opportunity for value enhancement or mitigation of financial outlay where long leases remained. Each property was subjected to a review to understand market opportunities, legal and statutory considerations, and building condition. Collins McKay managed this process then built cash flow models for each property which formed the core of the initial decision making process. By driving various sub-consultants and co-ordinating other advisors, we created a single point of contact for the client which streamlined the entire project and assisted in timely decisions leading to robust financial outcomes.
