Some of the industrial sector’s unique complexities

Safety first badges

Safety focus

In this sector, safety is sacrosanct. Successful tenderers must show their understanding of and alignment to the client’s safety approach. They must also demonstrate their ability to support and improve safety outcomes.

Service continuity

Organisations place heavy emphasis on guaranteeing continuity of production or service. Successful bidders identify risks and develop comprehensive mitigation strategies to eliminate unplanned disruptions, reduce lost time and maintain quality.

Community engagement

The success of large industrial projects often depends on the acceptance and support of local communities and stakeholders. Bidders do well when they develop meaningful plans for communication, consultation and engagement, and create opportunities to leave a legacy for their local community.

Private sector procurement

The industrial sector undertakes more private sector mega projects than any other. And private sector procurement is a completely different kettle of fish: it follows a different process with an entirely different set of priorities. Success relies more on long-term relationships and trusted partnerships, collaborative design thinking and solution development, and the right economic solution.

Emphasis on price

Industrial projects typically place more emphasis on price than non-cost agenda items. Bid teams do well to solve for low-cost outcomes, whether that be low capital cost, low operating costs or low whole-of-life costs. Even smart value adds generally won’t create a significant advantage unless they drive a better financial outcome.

Letters flying out of pen

Technical lingo

The complexity of industrial projects means that teams are usually populated with a wide range of specialists all speaking their own deeply technical language. The bid team needs Olympic-level linguistic dexterity to synthesise, translate and communicate complex information to ensure it’s accessible to all without losing its potency.

We’re your Olympic-level bid team. Our clients keep coming back because we keep winning.
