Simon Rawlinson Biography

2011 is shaping up to be another challenging year for construction and property, with many economies slowing and continuing headwinds from scarce finance and soaring commodity prices.  Positive action creates conditions for success, and clients with a proactive approach to project set-up, procurement and delivery will be best placed to secure value and viability.  Those who assume that they can rely on weak demand to obtain best value may not obtain optimum results and may be taking unnecessary risks.

To help clients focus on the major opportunities, we have produced a concise guide to winning strategies – Beating The Market – 10 key opportunities in 2011. In the guide, we have set out some of the direct actions that clients and their supply chain can take during 2011 to ensure success.  We consider key issues for clients ranging from Intelligent Cost Reduction aimed at delivering optimum performance from existing assets to considering performance-centric design on new build.  We also highlight opportunities affecting funding and sustainability, as well as threats associated with business failure and commodity price escalation.

As the leading Built Asset Consultant, EC Harris has the expertise and proven track record to support our clients in markets that remain turbulent and unpredictable.  For clients who want to take positive action to improve their projects and assets, these insights will help clients to chart the optimum route to success.
