A Major High-Rise Development in the USA - Case study
A Joint Venture considering a major high-rise development in the United States
On behalf of our client, 6 Alpha was contracted to produce a Holistic Risk Assessment
The client was investigating the viability of erecting a significant high-rise structure on top of an existing building. The risk profile included construction, terrorism and security risks. These included; a probable increase in terrorism risk from the production of an iconic structure, and the potential risks to the trading floor of a nearby major financial institution.
We deployed a team of risk, construction safety and terrorism experts in order to produce a holistic risk assessment. By conducting detailed interviews with the stakeholders that were most likely to be impacted, we were able to identify the consequences of any potential Business Interruption event. Importantly, we were able to produce a detailed terrorism and security threat assessment for the project, and to benchmark those risks with the other risks presented.
The client has experienced 3 key benefits:
• The client was able to make informed decisions as to the viability of the project.
• The client was able to benchmark a number of complex risks with one another,
and to gain indicative costs for transferring those risks.
• The stakeholders in the Joint Venture gained an increased understanding of the
issues and risks posed to all parties. This led to a greater understanding and
ultimately improved decision making on the project.
