KSA has extensive experience of providing financial modelling, property, procurement and delivery advice related to the Master-planning process. A Master-plan is both a visual and written description of the potential of a place. It sets down the different layers of physical change to buildings, public spaces, roads, pedestrian routes and the wider built environment. It is able to assimilate the aspirations of key stakeholders in the public and private sectors. In planning for change we focus on environmental, social and economic sustainability.
Development Agents/Project Managers
All our senior personnel have specific training as Project Managers. Our discipline is the planning, organising, securing, and managing resources to achieve specific goals. A project is a temporary endeavour with a defined beginning and end, usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables, undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. We engender the development process and respond to the future rather than react to the past.
We are Employer’s Agents and Client Representatives. Our philosophy is to make projects happen. We approach schemes with a gregarious pro-active stance and engender collaboration. At the same time we are acutely aware that we are in a negotiation and believe we have the skill and at some points certain acumen, to deliver the best deal for our clients. We have a coherent knowledge of all forms of standard contract and work closely with lawyers on non standard agreements, joint ventures and partnership arrangements.
Financial modelling is concerned with predicting outcomes: how much will a project cost, what will be the timing and impact of the financial equation? Good financial modelling assists the client to balance the often-conflicting aspects of a scheme to ensure the best possible outcome. It is crucial to understand the factors affecting the quantitative elements of the financial equation. Circumstances that may cause these factors to vary over the duration of the project must be taken into account. A greater understanding of the financial variables increases the amount of information on which decisions are made.
Where appointed as CDM Coordinator, KSA are responsible for ensuring that the design and management of the project minimises the risks to health and safety of end users and the public. Throughout the design and construction process, KSA ensure that the CDM Co-ordinator liaises closely with the individual project manager / employers agent at KSA regarding all health and safety issues relating to the project.
