Project Planning


Bringing all the elements together. Painlessly

Getting the balance right between in-house services and outsourced providers is often complex – yet crucial to success. Working alongside you as an ‘Intelligent Client’, we devise procurement solutions that meet the key project drivers and offer best value. This ranges from procurement objectives and strategy to prequalification and tendering processes, along with consideration of contractual arrangements for term commissions, framework arrangements, and works or services contracts.

Whether you are seeking to procure a design team or building contractor for a capital project or outsource services for property and infrastructure maintenance, at Keystone we will work with you to ensure your procurement processes comply with Public Contracts Regulations, and are aligned with your own ethos and objectives.

Having a structure and transparent processes for the project development is key to success. Having a Project Manager on board is not a guarantee that this will happen, there is a significant onus on the client. We ensure that in the initial stages a comprehensive Strategic Brief is developed through workshops with agreed stakeholders, this is further developed into a detailed Functional Brief when the feasibility exercise has identified a preferred option. A Project Execution Plan is developed which identifies roles and responsibilities and the methodology for delivering the project including clearly defined gateway approval stages. Keystone have over many years developed a comprehensive approach that works and keeps Senior Management Teams and Governing Bodies informed and confident of progress and enables staff to feel engaged in the process.
