Re-structuring a construction and engineering programme

The Challenge

The Programme involved extension to an existing sewage works in order to install storage tanks, driers and special processing equipment, in order to enable the use of sewage as fuel in a power station.

The Solutions

Peter was assigned by a Combined Joint Venture (CJV) operation to re-organise this major Programme, which was both business critical and involved a new technology application. The assignment was recommended by the ultimate clients who were concerned about the impending commercial risk to operations.

The Outcomes
  • Creation of a new effective organisational structure, including a monthly programme board meeting consisting of the clients, CJV directors and key suppliers
  • Resolution of supplier and client relationship issues without legal interventions
  • Production of a new, comprehensive, integrated CPA deliverables programme, which produced a highly accurate schedule of deliveries
  • Operation of a realistic multi-level, multi-discipline risk management approach, which enabled foresight and avoidance of possible delays.
