Project Advisory

Blackrock Expert Services’s Project Advisory team draws on our expert knowledge and transposes it early into the project life-cycle to ensure that the project definition and implementation strategy are aligned and effective in delivering the planned project.

During the implementation phase we collaborate with the project delivery team, proactively manage the project and provide an independent and accurate appraisal of the project with an emphasis on safeguarding the client’s interests prior to closeout and handover.

Blackrock Expert Services’s experts have advised on an extensive range of projects. Some examples of our work include:

  • Project definition & planning
  • Project strategy
  • Procurement & contracts
  • Consultant selection
  • Delivery oversight
  • Project monitoring & reporting
  • Compliance reviews
  • Project ‘health check’
  • Distressed project appraisal and advice.
