Peter Tulla, Director
Rider Levett Bucknall
I am writing to commend RCP for their services on the recently completed New Royal Adelaide Hospital development. Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB), acting as financier certifier to the SA Health Partnership, engaged RCP midway through the project in an audit capacity to provide independent programming advice in relation to the contractor’s progress on site and the likely technical completion date.
Programming Director, Neal Taylor, demonstrated his commitment to the project by personally flying to Adelaide on a weekly basis to visit the project site and meet with the construction team to obtain an accurate assessment of the project programme status. Neal’s specialist expertise and understanding of the complexities of major projects of this nature enabled him to assess construction progress and provide accurate forecasts in relation to project completion. RCP’s specialised programming services enabled RLB to full fill its financier certifier role that included advice on progress and an independent view on the contactors programme and completion dates, providing independent advice to near 30 project investors.
RLB have engaged RCP’s specialised programming services on a number of key projects and I commend Neal and his team for maintaining a high level of quality and consistency of service across all projects. I would not hesitate to recommend RCP’s specialised project programming services to industry colleagues.
