Project Management



Many commercial and government organisation have utilised IMC’s technical and commercial expertise through the various stages of vessel acquisition programs to help ensure their initial vision and requirements are efficiently translated into successful operational capability. 

IMC’s track record includes providing government organisations with technical expertise in the development and execution of request for tender (RFT) / request for proposal (RFP) processes for patrol boats, research vessels, and training vessels.

Regardless of the type of the vessel being constructed, modified or converted, IMC’s scope can include all or any of the following key project stages:

  • Requirements Analysis
  • Conceptual Design
  • Technical Specification Development
  • Tender Process Management
  • Technical Evaluation
  • Commercial Evaluation
  • Contract Negotiation
  • Contract Management
  • Build Supervision / Owner’s Representation
  • Commissioning, Sea Trials and Delivery

Application of IMC’s broad ranging expertise throughout a project’s life cycle:

  • Optimises outcomes and reduces risk by providing continuity from concept to finalised product
  • Ensures the client’s vision and requirements are properly considered, incorporated, and adhered to at all times

IMC can provide this project management capability regardless of the vessel design’s origin (IMC or third party). 

IMC’s independence ensures it represents its client’s interests free of the influences corporate affiliations with shipyards or suppliers could generate. 

Independence also means IMC works with a broad cross section of the marine industry. This helps ensure familiarity with contemporary ship design and shipbuilding practices, a wide range of equipment, as well as relevant regulations and standards. This enables IMC to:

  • Undertake robust, realistic requirements analysis
  • Develop conceptual designs and technical specifications that are achievable and cost-effective
  • Complete well informed evaluations of technical and commercial proposals
  • Rapidly identify potential issues and suggest suitable solutions throughout the project
