In recent years there has been increased awareness of the importance of assurance, partly because of an increased focus on infrastructure but also due to the need to increase the effectiveness of programme and project management in general.
While it is a sad truth, projects often run over time or budget, or suffer from mismanagement or external circumstances. The project team is often ill-equipped to assess these threats directly, as they are too close to the issues, and their role may be at risk.
Stone+Partners are there for the clients and investors. We do not assume a Project Management role at any time, which allows us to be fully independent and impartial in our assessment of any development and/or team, giving us the ability to inform our clients with a comprehensive overview of the status of their investment.
Stone+Partners typically service Boards (both private and/or publicly held companies), Government Agencies, Banks and Investment Houses, Insurance Companies and any other entity that has a fiduciary reporting responsibility for project investments, without the necessary skill sets to review and/or assess project health.
Project Health refers to, but is not limited to :
- Scope Creep
- Cost Control
- Quality Control
- Safety Management
- Design Management
- Approvals and Certification
- Contracting Management
- Documentation Control
- Risk Assessment and Mitigation
- Site Progress and Ability to Meet Target Dates
The Stone+Partners team has a combined 100+ years experience in the construction, development and challenges of some of the most significant projects in the world.
