Gateway Project Process
Our Gateway Project Process provides clients and the project team with certainty and clarity throughout the project journey. We stop and review at the end of each stage to check everyone is aligned and the project is on track before proceeding.
Understand outcomes needed
Identify specialisms required
Review progress at milestones
Regularly revisit objectives
Debrief and Review
Check success against objectives
Equip client for takeover
Capture lessons learned
We work with our clients to help them fully define the outcomes they are looking for from a facility. By looking ‘beyond the horizon’ we consistently help clients to define a vision for a building that exceeds their initial expectations for user experience and return on investment. We bring to the table our own experience of setting measurable and prioritised objectives so that these outcomes are achieved.
With the vision defined, our project managers take ownership of the project as if it were their own. As well as developing the scheme and drawing up the project plan, we also form the project team, drawing on our expertise in appointing suppliers to ensure the necessary skills and resources are in place. This is just as important as developing the scheme itself because success relies on having the right people on board.
Regular milestones provide opportunities to review progress – including how well the objectives are being met – and realign the team as necessary. We draw upon lessons learnt and ensure the right skills are available and necessary actions are taken at the next stage. We engage, encourage and motivate team members at every stage so that the project gets the full benefit of everybody’s potential.
Debrief and Review
A comprehensive debrief at the end of each project gives us a chance to check the actual delivered results against objectives. It’s also an opportunity to capture lessons learnt that can be carried forward for future projects. A thorough handover process then ensures that you are fully equipped for the ongoing ownership or management of the building.
