Major Projects Advisory 

Companies implementing growth plans or executing large capital projects frequently encounter surprises in the form of cost overruns and schedule delays. Major capital projects are often complicated, fast-paced and risky endeavors, and are carried out in an environment prone to fraud, uncertainty, waste and abuse.

Major Projects Advisory 

Stakeholders are demanding transparency, predictability and accountability for project results so that administrators and boards are empowered to make prudent capital decisions.


Is your organization:


  • Concerned about inadequate or nonexistent policies, procedures or controls for capital construction/project delivery?
  • Dealing with reported incidences of potential fraud or abuse such as bid rigging, bribes/gifts?
  • Struggling with process inefficiencies, high levels of rework or errors, or documented control processes are not being followed, if documented at all?
  • Worried about the lack of integration between project cost and schedule information?
  • Overwhelmed by construction claims, contractor overbillings or assessing vendor compliance with large complex agreements?
  • Realizing that the size, scale and complexity of the project or projects exceeds the capability or capacity of the current project team?
