  • Establish “governance” and procedures around your project;

Construction Management

Some projects can be complex and need to be delivered using multiple contractors who are required to interact concurrently on a single site.  At Signature PM our team has extensive construction experience in delivering projects such as exhibits and commercial and retail fitouts.  These types of projects require a high level of coordination and planning skills.  Our team understands the value of time and we plan, procure and assist you in the day to day delivery of your project.

Project Audits & Compliance

Many organisations need to be assured that their project is on track, meets the brief, risk has been assessed and aligns with your internal governance. At Signature PM we take pride in our staff, their experience and professionalism.  We will appoint the most suitably qualified industry expert to work with your organisation to identify problems and solutions.

Distressed Projects

The rate of insolvency is high, with nearly 2,000 builders filing for bankruptcy every year.  If you are in the unfortunate position that your builder has gone broke then we can help get your project back on track.  We are not insolvency practitioners but we work with the insolvency industry to manage distressed projects to completion.  Our team will typically:

  • Establish the projects current financial and programme status;
  • Re-negotiate terms with a new contractor or individual subcontractors and suppliers;
  • Monitor the project to completion.

Contractual Disputes

Legal disputes can be daunting, time consuming and expensive.  In most cases you will probably need to consult with Legal Counsel, however we can assist in ways that will save you time and money:

  • Review your dispute;
  • Provide expert opinion;
  • Brief Legal Counsel;
  • Manage correspondence;
  • Prepare written submissions;
  • Act on your behalf and be your ‘expert’ advisor.

Within our team we have senior consultants who regularly work in the Expert Determination, Adjudication and Expert Witness areas.  These consultants are industry experts and maintain their professional development through the Institute of Mediators and Arbitrators Australia.

Research, Training & Education

We enjoy imparting our years of experience to people and organisations.  Our consultants regularly do seminars, speak at industry events and prepare industry ‘white papers’, particularly in areas such as Program Planning, Collaborative Tools, Leadership, Governance, etc. We would be more than pleased to find out what topics might interest you?
