Applying our local knowledge and expertise in residential sector, Turner & Townsend supported the client throughout the investment process, providing complex Project Management and Cost Management services.
Making the difference
- Despite numerous changes being introduced, arising from some discrepancies in the design, we were able to keep additional cost to a level not exceeding 2% of the investment value.
- Our tailored reporting, combined with the early warning system we had established, gave the Client a constant overview of construction as it progressed, which enabled prompt and informed decision-making.
Turner & Townsend showed a proactive approach in dealing with any challenges that arose and were able to tailor solutions for every situation. Throughout the project they facilitated communication and coordination between all parties – investor, general contractors and sub-contractors. Their approach to Health & Safety was excellent.
