Linesight eyes 15pc growth in Mena region

DUBAI, November 16, 2016

Construction consultancy Linesight (formerly known as Bruce Shaw) is targeting 15 per cent growth in the Middle East and North Africa over the next five years, with the launch of a set of new services aimed at helping the industry consolidate costs and simplify project execution.

Linesight will add programme management, a new construction sector specialised in consultancy and procurement to its core competencies of project, cost and supply chain management, said a top official.

The new services – launched immediately – respond to a shifting market dynamic in the region, as major construction companies look to streamline operations against a backdrop of oil market uncertainty and a regional economic slowdown.

Linesight’s new capabilities will deliver economies of scale whilst increasing control over budgets, schedules and project delivery, it stated.

“The fluctuation in oil prices has forced governments and developers across the region to cut spending plans and review strategic tactics. As consultants, it is our job to help clients review their strategic priorities and match them to the most efficient services," remarked Niall Greene, the regional director, Linesight.

"With a business model tailored specifically for the Middle East and in-depth cultural and domain expertise across multiple industry sectors, we are uniquely positioned to ensure that projects are running on track and on budget," he noted.

Linesight has introduced consultancy services covering a broad range of areas, from financial advice, taxation and legal support, to whole life costing, and value engineering.

According to him, consultancies are called upon for strategic guidance and counsel very early at project consideration stages.

To cater to this, Linesight is providing a range of specialist consulting services to public and private sector clients, covering all facets of PPP/PFI (public private partnerships/private finance initiative) projects, stated Greene.

These range from initial concept and business case development, through to final delivery and operation.

Working collaboratively with clients, Linesight will guide them through every step of the development process, advising on the best practices to guarantee maximum return and add value across all areas of their business.

Linesight has also rolled out programme management services to support organisations working on a network of simultaneous projects or connected projects, said Greene.

By looking at the programme of work in its wider context and implementing sound management methods aimed at optimising all stages of development, running large projects will become a simple task with Linesight’s support.

From design through to operations, Linesight will effectively manage all the risks involved in such large projects, delivering a cost-cutting, stress-free management service for clients, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
