We have developed a project planning and execution process and standards that ensure effective delivery.

Our project development process is grouped into four stages:

  • 1

    Consulting and advisory

    This is the exploration stage, in which we consult with all stakeholders to manage expectations and collect requirements. We provide our findings to all parties, from investors to designers, to ensure everyone is on the same page in terms of the vision, budget and timelines for the project.

  • 2

    Planning and refinement

    In this stage, we delve into further detail for the plans of the building, fleshing out the costings and refining the timelines to ensure all trades and investors involved in the building and marketing process are engaged and ready to launch.

  • 3


    As the design develops, Grace Civil & Development validates each decision for budget, methodology, compliance, quality, and program before agreeing to the direction. In this way, the appropriateness of each decision is assured, ensuring the objectives of the project are always front of mind.

  • 4

    Execution and management

    After launching, the management team constantly monitors the progress of the project, checking activities against timelines and communicating progress with stakeholders. Any delays are anticipated, budgeted for, and made up, with no nasty surprises at the end.

Our Standards


We are dedicated to ensuring that every project is completed to the highest degree of excellence.


We can be relied on to clearly communicate on the progress of all aspects of the project, from budget to timeframe, with transparency and accuracy.


We pride ourselves on remaining accountable to the expectations we set and the needs of our customers.
