Project Delivery Strategy Outline
GRS' management teams are comprised of industry peers of the highest caliber who manage an integrated team of personnel, taking projects through the full project lifecycle and into operation with emphasis on:
- Due diligence in risk management and implementation of project controls;
- Detailed and accurate scope definition;
- Development of detailed contracting strategies;
- Careful analysis of the most appropriate engineering contractors;
- In-house, independent compilation of cost estimates and project schedules with a greater degree of confidence and control than can be derived from an EPCM or EPC contractor;
- Excellence in project management, commercial management and the application of project controls;
- Minimisation of commercial disputes, schedule slippages and cost overruns;
- Integration of project and operations teams to ensure transparency, operational input and 'buy-in' during the project phases and smooth transition and handover from projects through the completion and commissioning phases.
GRS project execution personnel are highly experienced and dedicated to the successful delivery of our clients' projects. Personnel can be dedicated to projects through to completion, realising cost and time efficiencies during the transition between project phases.

GRS can also provide project support services to PFS, DFS and Project Execution teams, as and when required, during all development phases.
