Mobilising resources to assist clients

Nationally, APP has mobilised our local resources to continue to service our clients through assisting them in pivoting their businesses in the face of the current challenges, just as we’re pivoting ourselves.

We’re all in unchartered territory but what you may find of immediate value is:

Construction Contracts

Nationally we are seeing some common themes arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • In our administration of construction contracts on behalf of our clients we have identified some key issues to consider in investigating risks and responding to client queries with respect to claims.
  • We are in touch with financiers, legal advisors and developers with respect to distressed projects to renegotiate for extension of time, or provide dispute resolution expertise, or present different options to mitigate impacts to a project as a result of changes in circumstances from the current crisis.
  • Contact Martin Donaldson for construction contracts at: Martin.Donaldson@app.com.au

Property Assets

  • We have been talking with a number of our clients who are landlords with large, secure sites with ready access to utilities to support temporary facilities as required.
  • We are also developing a response for a range of different facilities to assist with their viral mitigation strategies.
  • Contact Warwick McInnes for property assets at: Warwick.McInnes@app.com.au 

Logistics Support

  • We’re offering a full range of planning and modelling services to businesses for which logistics (transport, storage, volume management, distribution management) is not their core business but has now become a major activity, including:
    -Capacity modelling
    -Transport mapping
    -Warehouse operations
  • We’re also looking beyond the immediate crisis to recovery and how to protect the capacity of your supply chains to withstand fluctuations within the market.
  • Contact Paul Kirkwood for logistics support at: Paul.Kirkwood@app.com.au

Operational Support

We are working with clients who have found their current workload increasing by providing ongoing operational support through our local teams.

Our diversity, depth of skills, geographic reach and financial resilience means we can provide support as the entire country navigates challenges ahead. The business has assisted governments and private clients in a range of disaster situations in the past and is well placed to mobilise as required.

The team in NSW are available if you need some help or support, let’s explore if there’s an extra-ordinary APP solution for these extra-ordinary times? If we can’t help you ourselves, we can likely point you in the right direction or facilitate an introduction.
