ALM Intelligence Identifies Best Capital Projects and Infrastructure Consultants

2018 Vanguard Buyer Ratings Guide Rates Global Providers and Specialists

New York, NY – October 2, 2018 – ALM Intelligence – Consulting division, previously known as Kennedy Consulting, has released its 2018 ratings of The ALM Vanguard: Capital Projects & Infrastructure Consulting providers. Five firms were identified as leaders in the consulting industry: EY, IPA Capital Solutions, McKinsey & Company, PwC, and Westney Consulting Group. Consulting to capital projects involves connecting enterprise and financial strategies to the supply chain by optimizing the capital portfolio and effectively managing new capital projects, including project design and engineering, procurement, and construction services.

“Project volume for consultants is strong in 2018, but megaprojects do not dominate as they once did, and projects are still plagued by cost and schedule overruns,” said Tomek Jankowski, Senior Research Analyst at ALM Intelligence. “Meanwhile, construction and engineering companies lag far behind most other industries in terms of digital adaptation and process efficiency. Consulting providers in this space are focusing on getting the essentials right up front in capital projects with project design and management, enhanced risk management and digital transformation. Data analytics also plays a key role and the more successful they are able to help clients with capability and talent augmentation to support projects to completion.”

Providers that attained challenger status include: AP-Networks, A.T. Kearney, Advisian, Arcadis, Deloitte, FTI Consulting, Jacobs Consultancy, KPMG, and Roland Berger. Other firms that were rated include: Accenture, Bain & Company, The Boston Consulting Group, Capital Projects Consulting LLC, The Capital Projects Group, IBM, Oliver Wyman, PA Consulting, Pathfinder and Protiviti.

ALM’s Vanguard research series assesses firms in terms of their relative ability to create impact for their clients. In addition to its overall rating assessments of consulting providers’ depth and breadth of capabilities and best-in-class provider designations, this series includes detailed capability evaluations for each covered provider as well as a qualitative analysis of their consulting organization, approach, and service delivery model.
