The Service  

Risk managers at Mace utilise their knowledge and experience to implement robust project risk management frameworks to manage risk and uncertainty effectively across capital projects and programmes securing alignment with industry best practice.  

The most effective way to manage risk is to identify, analyse and evaluate whether the risk should be treated in order to bring it to an acceptable or tolerable level. Our Risk Practitioners communicate and consult with stakeholders, monitor and review the risks and controls used to modify these to ensure no further treatment is required and to develop effective reporting metrics.  

Successful risk management depends on the effectiveness of the management framework or strategy and embedding this within the project or programme. Information about risk derived from the risk process is reported and used as a basis for decision making and accountability at all appropriate levels.   

Risk Management is a core Mace project management discipline and is central to the delivery of major projects and programmes such as the London 2012 Olympic Games, The Shard, London Eye, Heathrow Terminal 5 and Battersea Power Station (Phase 2).
