Our Solution

When we were appointed as Project Manager the project had commenced on site, it was therefore imperative that we familiarised ourselves with the scheme urgently. We quickly disseminated the project information and arranged a combined briefing and progress meeting in order to meet the team. The first meeting allowed us to confirm the project governance and reporting structure, define the meeting schedule and to update existing project documentation.

The monthly progress meeting is attended by the C&JS, SPV, G4S Facilities Team, Contractor and ourselves. All stakeholders are now aware of progress against budget, project costs, required authorisations and site constraints adherence. As part of our service we verify the installation of the works on site.

Benefits of using Callidus

Our collaborative approach to consultancy, along with a clear and professional communication strategy, allowed us to quickly integrate with the ‘live’ project team.

The project is ongoing site with completion due in May 2017.
