For Construction Professionals

In addition to our wider Value Management services, Pharos Consulting offers the following specific services to construction consultants in the built environment at strategic and operational levels.

It has long been recognised that profesional services firms are under pressure- facing increasing client expectations and regulatory requirements with reducing fee levels against an ever increasing pace of change within the industry.  Many professional services firms are managed by senior professionals who retain a 'hands-on' approach to service delivery.  This can become a double-edged sword in that continued close relationships with Clients are a key source of future work, however the increasing pressure at project level reduces the time available to manage and develop the business- the management end up working 'in' the business rather than 'on' the business.

At a strategic level, we provide management consultancy services which allow you to systematically review your position internally and externally, identify where you want your business to go and grow and work with you to plan and implement the changes required to deliver your plan. 

At an operational management level we can provide assistance through interim or part-time management services to get you to a position where change is occurring to avoid issues with failing at the implementation stage.

in addition, we also offer project level assistance through our value management services including:

Defining a clear strategic brief - start your projects off with an accurate destination which is where your client wishes you to be- don't leave the outcome to chance. Have Pharos  Consulting work with you to clearly map success and value.

Strategic brief review- do you find through the course of your projects that 'creep' of project requirements is occurring. This may be an essential part of the design development; however it can often be 'non-value adding' to both your your own company and your client.  Have Pharos Consulting work with you to provide the reviews needed to confirm you are delivering best value to your clients and minimising waste internally.

Output reviews - are you sure you have considered all the options and have arrived at the optimum solution?  Are you sure your output delivers on the requirements of the agreed brief? Have Pharos Consulting work with you to get creative and deliver better solutions for you and your clients.

Pharos Consulting can assist you through our use of Value Management techniques in asking the telling questions at each stage of the project.
