Stakeholder Liaison

Including written, verbal and face-to-face, a solution for all.

It is important to maximise opportunities to engage with all those affected by our projects to ensure your project is clearly understood and allow for a smooth delivery. Stakeholders very much need to be involved with the projects, therefore we value their support and co-operation for a successful implementation. We complete a range of initiatives to maintain support:

Community Engagement Events and Meetings

  • Regular face-to-face contact is key to successful communication
  • We host events to encourage stakeholder questions and raising of potential issues
  • Utilise engaging technologies to communicate schemes, such as 3D animation
