Appointed to implement a PMO for Brisbane Airport Corporation
Date: 29 May 2012
Brisbane Airport Corporation has selected Turner & Townsend to implement a best-in-class project management office (PMO) for its planned capacity enhancement programme. Over the next five years Brisbane Airport will be undergoing a challenging period of development to meet increasing passenger demand.
Brisbane Airport Corporation’s aim is to improve assurance and reporting whilst ensuring the certainty of project outcomes. Turner & Townsend has been commissioned to provide the full range of PMO services within an integrated team, including setting up a programme office, operating it and transferring capability to Brisbane Airport Corporation. The PMO will use scheduling to drive costs, risks and interface management over a business as usual $300m per annum capital spend.
Specific benefits to this approach for Brisbane Airport Corporation include executive level visibility of issues requiring management action, identification and management of key project milestones and third party interfaces, annual delivery targets being met and reporting capability supported by Turner & Townsend’s integration tool resulting in fast, better quality reporting.
Martin Londra, Turner & Townsend Director said: "We are proud to have been selected to implement a PMO office for Brisbane Airport Corporation, which to date is delivering real value to Brisbane Airport Corporation through enhanced capability in monitoring, reporting and analysing the performance of their portfolio of projects, thereby helping manage and reduce Brisbane Airport Corporation business risk across this capital spend.
"With over 400 world-wide PMO delivery specialists and an even larger group of contract specialists, cost managers and project managers, we capture the knowledge from our work across a wide range of sectors and combine it within our PMO global best practice to deliver tangible results for clients like Brisbane Airport Corporation."
The appointment builds on our strong global PMO experience in the aviation sector, which includes world-leading projects such as Melbourne Airport, King Shaka Airport in Durban, Dublin Airport in Ireland, Astana Airport in Poland, Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 as well as British Airports Authority’s 200+ project portfolio spanning seven airports.
