Discover Our Expertise
Our mission is to save you from sleepless nights.
Whether you are reviewing a mean-looking contract, planning a mega-project, responding to aggressive correspondence, identifying and managing risks, preparing a recovery programme, developing maximum-profit strategies, implementing best-practice systems, securing that 'must win' project, negotiating the dream outcome, or looking to fill a gap in your organisation...
rhConsult will work with you, will advise you independently and professionally, will update you at every step, and will deliver on promises.
Win that Project
rhConsult‘s vision is to dependably protect all of its customers - and their hard won profit margins - from contract and payment risks, upstream and down.
35 years of managing complex construction contracts - 40 years of planning and programming
Contracts and Commercial Management
Put simply, we understand complex construction contracts and the challenges and opportunities that these create.
Whether you are drafting, reviewing, challenging or negotiating a construction contract, rhConsult will identify its key risks, opportunities, errors and ‘off-market’ provisions in a short report and presentation, explaining how risks can be mitigated or managed, and how opportunities can be maximised.
Maybe you're a Contractor or a Sub-Contractor, receiving 'contractual' letters that need firm responses. Or you're in a Construction JV, having tough negotiations with one of the JV partners. You may be a construction Client, facing unjustified claims from a poorly performing contractor.
Whatever the situation, Rob Hill - founder and Managing Director of rhConsult - has provided contract risk review and management services to the UK and the international construction industry for 35 years, across almost every sector. He is a natural leader, comfortable with responsibility, guiding legal and commercial teams through mega-project tenders, implementing project delivery and risk management systems, determining and valuing contractual entitlements, narrowing then resolving differences, and settling disputes - by negotiation and agreement wherever possible.
He is a skilled negotiator with a long and successful track record of securing agreements with some of the biggest Contractors and construction Clients in the World; always professional, highly regarded and trusted.
Unusually, Rob has ‘end-to-end’ experience of the construction industry, having held director and senior management appointments at world-class organisations ranging from specialist trade contractor, through main contractor, to investor/developer and consultant.
Rob has worked across the world from Canada through Europe and the Middle East to South East Asia, including five years in Singapore and Malaysia. He has managed complex and mega-projects in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan and Macau. Most recently, Rob has been working on a major hotel resort and casino project in the Philippines, supporting an international contractor, setting up and de-risking project delivery to prevent future margin leakage.
