Originally established 10 years ago, their expansion was a result of the lack of professional and elite Government-Administration service providers in the country.

CEO, Oracle Consultants

Our commercial and contract management consultancy services are greatly benefitted from the vast amount of knowledge gathered among our team members in terms of experience, resources, and benchmarked data.

Following are key attributes we focus on project delivery:

  • Ensuring project commercial feasibility and contractual viability
  • Global reach - local delivery and specialist sector knowledge
  • Recent and reliable Middle East market data and benchmarks
  • Tried and tested project delivery team

Commercial Feasibility and Contractual Viability

At the core of any project success is a commercially feasible and contractually viable decision. As a commercial and contract management company, we understand the importance and implications of these commercially feasible and contractually viable decisions and are in a position where we can help you to make the correct decisions. The information to make these decisions will either be calculated from first principles or will be produced utilising previous recent project experience.

We are very proud to report that even through the current global economic downturn we have been able to work with speculative buildings and infrastructure developers and made their projects financially feasible and contractually viable. This has been achieved through proactive and effective cost management techniques, which are distilled in all of our cost management teams, and, contract management strategies, which are developed over the years of structured training and practice.


Specialized Trade Knowledge in Diverse Regions

We have the added advantage of our experience gained in the Middle East region, Australia and Sri Lanka. We are able to rely on in-house experts on quantity surveying & commercial management, contract management and other specialists’ services whenever necessary. This added benefit means that we safeguard client’s interests in all possible means. In house we like to call it as a foolproof service.


Reliable and up-to-date Benchmarked data

As commercial and Contract Managers our day to day practice largely relied upon local and foreign market intelligence. We are proud to say that our knowledge management platform enabled us to gather most recent and reliable cost data with respect to current market rates, building cost inflation, tender price inflation and competitive material sourcing. Also our team is up to date with ever changing contract management knowledge, techniques and tools as well as local rules, regulations and laws. This information allows us to stay step ahead of our competitors in the market.

Our success in the recently completed and ongoing projects will bear witness to our understanding on the importance of cost information and contractual background.
