A BESPOKE AND SCALABLE APPROACH TO CAMPUS DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATIONS ADVISORY FOR BOARDS.

It’s crucial for first time developers to get advice on how to plan and execute their developments. Many management teams place increasing value on the time-consuming yet essential process of scoping a board; but many Boards may not have the experiance or resources necessary to develop a facility or campus. This is where professional and skilled advisory services pay dividends throughout the project lifecycle.

Understanding project objectives and requirements, along with formulating and implementing effective project strategies and solutions are key to successful projects. Through our project advisory services, ACADIQ assists and supports you and your team in your project initiatives to establish, understand and action the key aspects of:

– what to do (and why to do it),

– how best to go about it,

– how much should it cost,

– and how best to implement it, operate it, maintain it

Our project advisory services can be focused on specific stages or aspects of your projects, or if required, we can work with you through the entire project development process.

Advisory Services at project initiation and planning include:

  • Program Assessments
  • Governance and Execution Methodology Assessments
  • Benchmarking Assessments
  • Risk Assessments
  • Contracting Strategy Assessments
  • Organizational Assessments
  • Front End Planning Reviews

Operational Advisory Services includes expertise in:

  • Operations, Engineering, Maintenace, Cleaning, Security, and Food Services
  • Operational Cost Management and Control
  • Risk Management
  • Owner Representative Services
  • Procurement Advisory
  • PMO Services
  • Green Technologies

Early Guidance Yeilds the Greatest Opportunities in Campus Development

The opportunity for Boards and Campus developers to make significant contributions to enhance the development strategy, and improve the campus development is limited over the Project Life Cycle.

Maximum returns on investment are not realised while a development is under construction, but are achieved in the predevelopment and design phase. When construction works commence, changes and adjustments in direction cost significant amounts of money, many of which can be avoided if properly planned.

 

Understanding of the cost to build, clean, maintain and operate a facility, along with the services that will be provided, is critical in the early stages of the project. Educators educate. Architects design. Operators operate. All of these groups need to be brought together for the project to be successful.

Project Delivery

On time and on budget to the standard you expect. There’s no other way we deliver a project. A good set-up phase will benefit delivery. This is the heavy lifting stage – procurement, tendering, negotiating building contracts, site management.

 

To this we add active management of risks, finance, cost control and valuations along with variations. Reporting, scheduling and RFI are new elements to be managed. There’s quality control. Design becomes detailed, defects are managed, close-out is planned.

Operational Advisory

Campus operations are a complicated process that requires a creative vision and robust knowledge and experience to bring it to life. It involves the organization of many interrelated tasks performed by many highly specialized professionals over a long period, which can often be a drain on an organization’s resources.
