Integrated Project Development Services
Project development requires a range of expertise, methodology and project management systems, the knowledge of the local processes and stakeholders, and an anticipation of international stakeholder’s expectations, whether these are investors, lenders, an EPC company or NGOs.
We provide integrated project development services, bringing together a unique combination of competencies to address development efforts in a holistic manner. The exact scope of our project development services is tailored to each project and client’s needs and may include the activities below.
Project development services are led by its Managing Director Mr. Baptiste Bergès, supported by in-house project managers seasoned with the requirements of project development. At the present moment, SandRose can provide these services in Kenya and Tanzania but we are open to discussions to support projects in other countries, by replicating an approach successfully tested and proven on several projects over the last ten years.
We understand project development, its timeline, process and risks. The focus of our project development services is therefore to deploy resources that match project status and risks and support the client’s objectives in a cost-effective fashion.
The characteristics of our advisory services, which combine in-country and international expertise, complete experience of the development process, and a wide range of competencies, have enabled us to build a reputation of delivering results with efficiency. We place particular importance to professionalism excellency and integrity; which we trust has been a key reason to be given significant responsibilities in the assistance of our clients’ project development efforts over the years.
SandRose’s project development services combine modularity, flexibility and continuity. After analysing the project specifics, we will present a resource plan to achieve the objectives defined with our client. Typically, this will include an assurance of project development continuity through dedicated staff, the modular addition of specialist expertise from our range of experts if and when this may be needed, and a flexible contractual framework that allows to respond rapidly to project needs and uncertainty. Aware of the development risks our clients often face, our range of project management services are designed to offer cost-effective solutions, providing significant cost savings to the clients who give us recurrent, sizeable scope over long contractual periods.
The satisfaction of our clients and partners is our first priority. A management system is essential to managing risks, delivering quality outcomes, monitoring progress, responding rapidly to evolving needs and maintaining effective communication internally and externally.
SandRose’s management system comprises a series of documents available to all staff. It has three objectives: assessing and managing risks, delivering high quality at every stage of a project and a commitment of continual improvement.
Practically, SandRose has a project organisational structure where a dedicated Project Manager is responsible for a project. The Project Manager will assure our work follows our “plan, carry out, check and adjust” approach. The Project Manager will report to a Team Leader, who will be responsible for quality assurance and output approvals. Progress meeting, internal and with our clients, will be typically conducted by phone call or videoconference on a regular basis. All relevant client and third-party engagement will be followed by the preparation of minutes of meetings or stakeholder engagement recording form.
A progress report will be sent to the client at agreed regular intervals, indicating the activities performed, the progress of each section of deliverables and pending/follow up points.
To monitor client satisfaction and define improvement opportunities, we conduct client satisfaction surveys, the conclusions of which are discussed annually and constitute the basis for the continuous improvement of our services.
