Grant Thornton confident of Wembley success

Top 10 accountancy firm Grant Thornton says its appointment to monitor the development of the new national stadium at Wembley will be 'no morechallenging' than any other construction consultancy work it had undertaken so far.

The statement of confidence came after the firm was appointed alongside construction industry consultants Knowles Capital by Sport England, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the London DevelopmentAgency (the Public Sector Funders).

Grant Thornton will provide corporate finance and risk management advice, while Knowles will advise on construction matters.

Matthew Turner, Grant Thornton’s lead partner on the project, told Accountancy Age that the team would work with the board of Wembley National Stadium Limited to ensure ‘everything was kept on track’ for 2006.

But Turner said the work would be ‘no more challenging’ than other construction-related work it had undertaken, which included the building of the Manchester City Stadium. ‘All these projects have complexities, but Wembley is no more special,’ he said.
