Effective partnerships are key to successful project delivery

With over four decades in the sustainable engineering building consultancy industry, the Cudd Bentley team have learned that being able to liaise and communicate effectively with multiple stakeholders on projects is the key to success. The most critical element for profitable projects and positive outcomes is relationship building. Without forming effective partnerships right from the start and ensuring ongoing effective communication, there is no way to deliver projects effectively and successfully.

At the initiation of a project, our experience and knowledge mean that in the discernment process, we identify the solutions we will need to employ as well as quickly gain an understanding of the key stakeholders in a project. This enables us to place the right resources on-site at the right time so that targets are hit keeping budgets on track.

Communication

Communicating at the start of a project means that not only is the brief completely understood, but also stakeholders have been identified in terms of the people who have responsibilities and can make decisions about certain aspects of the project. They are the individuals who need to be kept informed at various stages and phases depending on where the project is at. Whether this is via e-mail, phone or in meetings, the communication must be crystal clear, and everybody must walk away knowing what is expected of them, timings and who is responsible. This sounds basic but it is at the core of complex projects and building effective partnerships.
