Any project comes with inherent risk and uncertainties specific to programme, quality and cost. A key role of fifty2 is to mitigate these risks through early identification and control of any subsequent issues to limit potential long term damage to the project goals and outcome. By default, the client is then armed with the correct information to make informed decisions at key points of the project cycle.

At fifty2 we represent clients’ interests by acting as a single point of contact for the duration of the project. We utilise our expertise gathered in the local market, along with knowledge of supply chain, to provide a seamless delivery within the agreed timeframe and according to the expected quality.
By engaging with the client to establish and define the budget prior to any other consultants being involved, we can manage the design process within the stipulated commercial parameters so that the client’s expectations are met.
We will monitor the project on behalf of an owner, developer or fund and by working with the appointed project management and consultant teams, we will provide, without exception, objective reporting on cost, quality, delivery and risk. This gives the client ultimate control over the final outcome and our services can be kept flexible in order to accommodate specific requirements.
