We’re excited to announce the launch of Ardent’s most recent service – our Consents Management Consultancy (CMC) – set up to support the integration and management of consents and land into the delivery of complex infrastructure projects.

Ardent has a successful history, spanning 25 years, in securing consents and land for a variety of clients across a range of sectors. We frequently find that organisations across the project value chain assume that land and consents acquisition is a discreet activity, requiring specialist advice as and when its needed. But this approach can create substantial challenges as the project progresses. Examples include:

• Integrating land and consent requirements and staff into the wider project team and strategy
• Appropriate inclusion of land and consents within project schedules, risk registers and value engineering plans
• Management of consents and land during delivery within a set of contractual relationships

Ultimately, a failure to holistically manage consents and land within the broader project strategy leads to unnecessary complexity, increased cost and increased delivery time. CMC oversees all disciplines throughout all stages, helping infrastructure clients, contractors and future operators mitigate risks, reduce complexity and support a timely, cost-efficient delivery.

Our focus is on integrating consents and land into the overall process – programme, risk, design and delivery – to ensure our clients are aware and prepared when it comes to how consents and land risks apply to them and their work packages, be that engineers, contractors, planners or sponsors. Our experienced project managers immerse themselves into project teams, co-locating when needed, to help determine the best strategy and management style for each unique project.
