Directors of football clubs who build a new stadium will do this once in their lifetimes.

Although knowledgeable about their own existing stadium, which will have evolved over the last 50 - 100 years, most football club Directors are 'naïve clients' when they begin the new stadium project.

It's not just knowing the answers, sometimes its predicting the questions!

Often, it's not just knowing the tasks, but knowing in what order the tasks should be completed. Like all things in life, it's all down to timing.

A very comprehensive 'prioritised action checklist' is essential before any project commences. After years of practice, you start to understand which chicken comes before which egg.

An action list is available which runs alongside this brief Commercial/Construction checklist.
