We takes a systematic approach to identify what the client wants to achieve with the project, determining the project scope, allocating resources to deliver the scope, managing all types of risk, and facilitating timely delivery within budget.
A professional project development management team works collaboratively within the project owner’s team, coordinating inputs from the owner’s experts and external technical assessments, often managing the procurement process for the experts that deliver those assessments.
We take an Owner’s Eye to Project Development Management as we manage environmental and development approvals, network connection applications, engineering, procurement and contracting.
It begins with identifying the project and continues to the strategic planning all of its stages, then through coordinating technical and commercial inputs, and finally executing the project.
Project development management often involves shepherding a project through a series of increasingly detailed studies — concept, prefeasibility, feasibility — and approvals processes to give the project owner staged information and context for how their project is likely to perform.
Each stage requires project management, budgeting and cost control, scheduling and schedule control, technical and commercial reviews, managing multidisciplinary inputs, managing client expectations and communication, knowledge of the legislative context, and managing communication with communities and other stakeholders.
For project development services, Arche applies our expertise to identify the version of the project that adds the most value over its life. We…

During the pre-feasibility stage, Arche’s consultants assess factors like a project’s location, size, network constraints, infrastructure requirements, loss factors, and whether it affects or is affected by other projects.
We work with you to define the project’s connection requirements, be a point of contact with the NSP and AEMO, provide you with relevant information to make decisions for your project, and prepare an official connection enquiry to the NSP.
The NSP then assesses the enquiry and provides guidance and information so we can prepare the project’s connection application. Arche Energy works with you on the application, which has to include performance standards, a description of the proposed installation, computer modelling of the project, and other supporting information.
We continue on as the point of contact for the NSP and AEMO and keep them apprised of any changes to the project’s proposed plant, performance standards, network, committed projects or requirements under the National Electricity Rules.
To complete the network connection, Arche works with the project owner, NSP and AEMO to finalise market registration, complete commissioning test procedures and provide the necessary performance data.
Our experience in network connections includes managing connection processes for mine and train loadout operations, managing the connection up to 257kV and the successful completion of GPS monitoring on major energy projects.
