“Promanage handled all the project management functions on our AUD 170m solar thermal greenhouse project in regional South Australia, from daily progress tracking through to steering committee participation. This project was a first of type, and combined renewable technologies with intensive horticulture on a scale that had never been attempted before globally. The project was successfully delivered by a lean owner’s team opposite a Tier 1 contractor under a project finance model, earning Promanage the respect and appreciation of client, contractor, and financiers alike.”

“Michael Frood of Promanage has carried out the on-site construction and quality assurance supervision role for SA Water/PMP on the sewer trunk main and water main relocation early works required for the $160 million O-Bahn City Access Project.
On the high risk/fast tracked sewer trunk main relocation works particularly, Michael’s experience, attention to detail and proactive communication skills ensured on site issues were resolved promptly and the project was delivered both safely and in accordance with SA Water’s quality requirements.
Michael’s timely and thorough verbal and written reporting also assisted SA Water in assessing claims and making well informed commercial decisions.”

“I have worked with Promanage on the SA Water – Marion Road, Holbrooks Road Trunk Water Main Renewal (2013) and the SA Water – South Road, Torrens Road to Torrens River, SA Water 3rd Party Project (2014). On both occasions Promanage went above and beyond to ensure that the projects were a success. Some of their key strengths include managing high performing teams but they are also able to rescue projects that are either off track or have extremely difficult parameters. They are very good at identifying and mitigating risks before they become issues and are highly driven with contract expertise.
Overall my personal experience with Promanage and Scott has been excellent. On both occasions we have been able to work through significant challenges whilst maintaining a high level of professionalism.
I would highly recommend engaging Scott and the Promanage team to contribute to your next project.”

“I have worked together with Promanage and Scott Schiphorst on two of Adelaide’s most prominent water projects, both in the last four years, namely the North South Interconnection System Project ($403million) and Marion Road – Holbrooks Road Trunk Water Main Renewal Project ($7million). Scott and the team provided professional and effective project management on both of these projects to deliver work on time and budget without sacrificing quality. Their dedication and experience are valued by clients and colleagues alike.”

“I’ve known Promanage and Scott Schiphorst for approximately 5 years working with them on the Adelaide Desalination Plant project for a brief time and then more specifically on the North South Interconnector System Project (NSISP). This $400 million project involved the interconnection of Adelaide’s drinking water system with over 120 different construction sites across the metropolitan area. Scott performed the roles of Contract Delivery Manager and Construction Manager working primarily to deliver the managing contractor package of works for the project.
The role required someone capable of managing multiple interfaces including engineering, finance, risk management, water quality, construction and community relationships across numerous sites at any given time. Promanage’s ability to deliver quality outcomes in a complex environment while maintaining positive relationships across multiple interfaces is outstanding and testimony to their technical experience, personality, commitment, loyalty and professionalism.
Promanage has an ability to excel under pressure ensuring timelines are met within budget and without compromising the quality of the outcomes. Most of all, Scott and the team are an absolute pleasure to work with. They are people of high integrity who are focused on success for their clients and the people around them. There are very few people who are prepared to contribute their personal time and effort beyond what is required in order to deliver project success – but Scott is one such person and I would not hesitate to recommend him and his team to any future clients.”
