Project management

What we do

Greyfriars Project Management provides independent, professional project management support services which enable clients to meet their objectives and requirements for every stage of the project, from conception to completion. 

Our clients’ projects are wide ranging from major infrastructure and developments for Local Government organisations, to one-off build projects for private developers. We can provide project management service for all types of building, transport and placemaking projects. 

Project health checks & independent advice

Greyfriars Project Management understands that clients may have long existing relationships with a range of consultants and will not need hands on project management services. However as part of best practice it is prudent on larger projects to carry out independent project reviews, health checks or gateway style reviews at key decision points to enable clients to make informed decisions on the next stage of the project life cycle.

The process includes interviewing the project team, including the wider client team if necessary, and reviewing key project documentation. Greyfriars Project Management’s experienced reviewers will produce a confidential report with findings and recommendations that identify areas that are doing well and areas that need strengthening. This report can be used to demonstrate good governance and that the project is being managed appropriately with the correct resources and controls in place. This can be particularly useful when identifying additional resources that are required when reporting to a project board.

It you would like to discuss the scope of a project health check or review please contact us.

Project controls

We use our experience of taking projects from inception to ribbon cutting in the most effective way to reduce risk, cost and time for our clients.

Project controls are at the centre of successful project delivery. Greyfriars proactively manages costs, programme, risk, resources and communications using our purpose-built tools. We also work with clients to develop specific project control tools to suit their governance needs. These controls provide a clearly defined path which is key for complex, ever-changing projects.

We like to provide our clients with a range of options to suit their needs and budget. Our project experts can host bespoke master planning workshops with our clients to identify key risks, milestones and delivery constraints. We can support clients by working up innovative solutions, providing tools for client teams to adopt, and always being on hand for a friendly piece of advice.
