Grant Thornton Australia, in conjunction with its strategic partners, Touch Projects and Kyriacou Architects, was successfully appointed to Rail Project Victoria’s (RPV’s) Project Management Advisory Services Panel.
Victoria’s rapidly growing population, shifting demographics and changing commuter preferences are putting pressure on existing transport infrastructure. To meet current and future demand for services, the RPV has established a panel to help deliver a large suite of projects that will support growth, drive social change and help Melbourne retain its place as a leading global liveable city.
Why are we different?
Grant Thornton, Touch Projects and Kyriacou Architects offer a streamlined, comprehensive portfolio of services for infrastructure delivery.
Our team is a unique blend of project management and professional service skills, public transport and construction management expertise and architectural design capabilities.
Alongside our local specialists, access to our global team of rail and transport experts will ensure that we tailor our services based on world’s best practice.
We operate as a single, seamless team dedicated to enhanced client service, competitive pricing and exceptional talent.
Benefits of our combined team experience
Collectively, we have supported the delivery of major local, domestic and international infrastructure projects. As a result, we draw on a deep resource and talent pool to offer the full spectrum of project management delivery services with a diversity of skills rarely found in a single organisation.
Focused specialty resources
Infrastructure projects have special requirements that need industry experience and expertise. Our in-depth specialist knowledge can reduce project risk and ensure timely and cost-effective delivery of infrastructure to the Victorian public.
Agility and accessibility
Our size means quick adaptation, direct access to experts and rapid response. These factors ensure effective and productive project management and significantly contribute to success.
What is the RPV Project Management Advisory Services Panel?
RPV is responsible for delivering billions of dollars worth of rail infrastructure over the coming decade in Victoria.
The Project Management Advisory Services Panel provides highly experienced, capable and qualified resources for project management functions so RPV can better respond to their dynamic and expanding projects and programs.
Accessing panel resources through the streamlined engagement process saves time and money allows swift access to the right skills and expertise to successfully deliver infrastructure projects. All panel members are pre-approved service providers with agreed rates, an executed head agreement and a thorough understanding of the Victorian Government’s social procurement objectives.
The panel of suppliers will help service RPV projects, including Metro Tunnel Project, Regional Rail Revival, Victorian Rail Infrastructure Program and Melbourne Airport Rail Link. However, the panel is also available for use by the Department of Transport on all current and future projects within the MTIA.
