Project + Programme Management

A dynamic approach to Project and Programme Management with close control, monitoring and proactive risk management.

Our service /

Trusted and highly skilled, the Project Manager sits at the core of every project to manage cost, time, quality and risk, allowing our clients to focus on running their business.
We help our clients plan and execute complex projects by acting as a single point of responsibility throughout the project from inception and business case preparation to design, construction and commissioning.

From our engagement we will work closely with you nad your team to understand the business case and the brief, allowing us to tailor our execution of the project, navigating your reporting structure and needs.
 
Defining the goals and needs for the project, we employ well-established management techniques combined with our own, EEDN way, to plan the process, monitor the work and deliver exceptional outcomes for our clients and their businesses.

Our services can be offered on their own or be tailored to the bespoke needs for our Clients.

Programme Management

In a rapidly changing environment with complex parameters and criteria for success, ensuring timely completion on budget is paramount - particularly with the impacts to investors, communities and businesses.
 
We lead the overall programme deployment strategy for our clients, managing the risks and expectations and achieve the outcomes our clients expect.

Programming + Scheduling

We use state of the art programming and scheduling software and techniques to establish, plot and monitor the progress of projects.

Our plans get developed into three levels:
  • Level 1: Overarching timeframes
  • Level 2: Detailed tasks
  • Level 3: All design and construction interdependencies

Incorporating all the processes, from Commissioning, Qualification and Validations to Operational Readiness and regulatory approvals, allows us to have full visibility of the project's critical path at all times.

Procurement + Contracting strategy

Selecting the right strategy for the project to procure the works is paramount. There are a number of parameters to consider:
  • Single or two-stage
  • Level of information at tender
  • Role of the incumbent team post-tender
  • Programme
  • Cost certainty
  • Risk appetite of client

In Science, Technology and Manufacturing, it is also paramount to consider how the procurement of equipment takes place and ensure that the dependencies are interwoven with the cosntruction of the building.

Our approach develops a bespoke strategy for each of our projects, recommending not only how to procure the works to align with the project's objectives, but also the contract selection that best suits.

Project MOT / Audit

We help Clients perform a Project or Programme MOT by analysing project data across the Commercial, Project Management and Design spectrum. Our analysis assesses the building's compliance with the design requirements, brief and construction standards.

Our team, reports back to the Client on these areas and provides a detailed advice for an objective overview of the project and provides valuable information to Stakeholders with recommendations on how to improve.

Project Recovery

Sometimes projects don't go as planned, despite best efforts. Bringing in an exteral person to the team to take a hollistic view and formulate a road to recovery is key to unlocking the recovery.

At EEDN, we bring both Project and Design Management principles to the table for Project Recovery as we believe that both skills are required to challenge the norm. We go back to the business case and expected benefits of the project before establishing the list of corrective actions and refocus the team to the new targets.

Client-side secondments (Executive PM)

We support some of our clients by allocating some of our staff on an interim basis to work internally for a defined period and role.

This brings an immediate benefit to our clients' teams by increasing the ability level of their internal delivery, whilst at the same time maintaining the head count.

Risk Management

Managing both risk and opportunities requires a collaborative process and a buy in from the stakeholders. We ensure that we embed risk-conscious behaviours from the outset, infiltrating all areas of the project.

Proactive mitigation enables engagement and allows us to turn certain risks into opportunities by promoting a culture of sharing and collaboration.

What our clients say /

Exceptional personal service – the ‘trusted advisor’ I would always want on the team. I would have no hesitation recommending EEDN who have supported the work and organisation fully during my tenure here. Their genuine enthusiasm and understanding of client needs has made them a pleasure to work with.

Rory Smyth // Head of Construction, One YMCA

The EEDN team were dedicated, diligent professional and highly supportive through our project for coworking and events space. I highly commend the whole team for their ability to manage strategically and tactically simultaneously, from contract negotiation and macro-financial modelling to value engineering at the nuts-and-bolts level. They have a strong and multidisciplinary approach which weaves seamlessly across these two levels of abstraction - we would relish the opportunity to do business with EEDN again. 

Freddie Scobey // Work+Play

With excellent awareness of the market and the process involved, EEDN showed proactivity, professionalism and enthusiasm founded on the strength of interdisciplinary working and we would have no reservations in recommending them to any organisation who would greatly benefit from their approach as we did.

I love it! Its personality is so accommodating and serene and yet dynamic and unique at the same time Every single group I have seen here has taken and given something to this beautiful space. It is transformed by every event’s own “personality” – you have created a magical palette. You should be very proud!

Paul has a unique and broad range of skills that make him an asset to any client and is well respected in the industry by his peers.
