Changes to Telecommunications Requirements

January 18 2016

The delivery of telecommunications to development sites has been, and is undergoing significant change. These changes involve multiple providers and potentially increased cost, complexity and time frames for developers.

The changes are resulting in uncertainty for the development industry, as there may be multiple solutions for each development – solutions which may have implications on costs, time frames and the type of service provided. A number of development industry groups are looking to address this issue with Government and authorities, in the meantime St Quentin Consulting will liaise directly with individual clients. Due to the current uncertainty with the quality of providers and options, it appears unlikely at this stage that St Quentin Consulting will be in a position to review all options for each development, and provide advice on the optimum outcome.

Instead St Quentin Consulting will provide advice to our clients on the options and processes which have provided the best outcome for our clients in the past, and allow the client to choose between that approach and any other options available. This is a conservative approach, and the optimum outcome cannot necessarily be guaranteed, however given the range and uncertainty of options available, we feel it is the approach which can best serve our clients.

We will be in touch individually with affected clients throughout the process.    Should you have any queries or concerns in the meantime though, please do not hesitate to contact us for further assistance.
