Bank Monitoring

‘Protecting all parties interests in assessing and monitoring risk, including independent financial modeling to stress test all scenarios in construction activities’.


What does it involve?:-
The Bank Monitors role is to provide impartial advice by undertaking reviews and appraisals to ascertain the nature of the proposed construction development and to outline the risks associated with it to the Client. This process is usually completed in two stages:-

  1. Initial Audit/Appraisal Stage: This stage of the development, involves understanding of  the project, and identifying the risks that are of relevance to the client.
  2. Development Stage: Once the funding is approved and the project is underway the Bank Monitor will ratify expenditure, Monitor the performance of the Contractor and Professional Team, approve development expenditure, and Report on same.

Why use an independent Bank Monitor?:-
Due to the ever changing, diverse and complex nature of the modern Construction Industry, it is essential to have Monitoring experts who will provide independent and impartial assessment of the project as it progresses and in doing so, give the client the managing tool for risk and for protecting their interests objectively. As such, the individuals who are most equipped to deal with, and advise on such tasks are Construction Professionals who possess the fundamental knowledge of the intricacies of the development, design and construction process. This results as an early warning system for the client by anticipating potential issues which may effect the delivery of the project.
