Why Work With Us

We are a specialist management consultancy operating in the construction industry and we focus on helping our clients to win more profitable business through solutions drawn from both practical, hands-on experience and also research into best practice approaches.

So, for our clients, real value is achieved through:

  • Solutions that are relevant, practical, proven and yet also bespoke
  • A facilitative approach that draws out the current best practice and then enhances it with our own experience
  • A focus on embedding new behaviours to encourage accelerated improvement
  • Skills development and transfer through cultural change activities and/or mentoring
  • Providing the tools to dramatically increase operational margins and profitability

We provide relevant, practical and proven solutions to help our clients be more effective, efficient and successful. This is practical Business Transformation in action.

Our contribution to success for other organisations:

  • We helped a facilities management consultancy to grow from £5m to £12m in only four years and assisted a £3m project management consultancy to double turnover in three years.
  • As a result of introducing Client Relationship Management with client relationship research, a leading consultant identified ways to leverage framework scoring, uncovered differentiators against competitors and strengthened client relationships.
  • The best win rates reported to date: winning 2 out of every 3 bids for Arup; Shepherd Construction going from a 1: 8 win rate to 1:3. In July 2011 Osborne reported holding their rate at 1:2.5 and WYG hold 1:2 consistently on major projects.

Past and current clients include WYG, Kier Construction (London Region), Leadbitter’s iESE Framework delivery teams, various divisions of Balfour Beatty, Shepherd Construction, Lovells, Mansell, Osborne, King Sturge and 4 divisions of Interserve, including International and Major Projects. We designed, developed and rolled out Arup’s bidding strategy for its European division.
