Comprehensive project planning is essential to efficient management of construction projects. We offer planning services at all stages of a project. Justifiably, time pressures and competing priorities leave project managers with insufficient time for the updating of construction programmes. In addition, modern project scheduling software is quite complex and does not always operate as might be expected.
Understanding the intricacies and nuances of scheduling software takes a considerable time, and is often beyond the time constraints under which project managers are required to work. The result of the above is poor quality construction programmes which soon become outdated and cannot be used for proactive project and commercial management.
In order to overcome these difficulties, Consulberg provides experienced project planners who can support project managers by relieving them of the technical tasks associated with operating scheduling software, and provide a sounding board for practical project management decision making.
It entails data gathering and analytical processes used to predict, understand and constructively influence the time and cost outcomes of a project, in so doing reducing the prospect of delays and disruption; cost overruns and the forensic analysis that would be required needed to understand the causes of delay or disruption.
Visibility of project status is vital to effective project management. Unfortunately, the programme is more often used as a means to retrospectively report progress only. Forecasting based on current performance trends and early identification of risk and will engender on-time delivery of projects. Consulberg's project controls strategies and experience in curbing project delays and disruption can be adapted to your specific project demands.
Forensic Delay Analysis
Our consultants are experienced in carrying out detailed examination of programmes and records to both identify and quantify delays. Sometimes, clients are unable to keep pace with the need for revised and/or updated programmes during the project. As programme becomes more and more out-of-date, agreement of the time effects of variations and delays becomes increasingly difficult. Eventually this process break downs leaving the parties uncertain as to any entitlements and argue over issues.
In such circumstances, Consulberg adds significant value by undertaking a systematic forensic examination of programme and records to identify and quantify delays that might have been missed or incorrectly assessed. This will greatly accelerate progress in reaching a position where a commercial assessment can be taken as to the merits of any potential claims, and provide greater certainty for management as to the true commercial position of the project.
Project audit is an interim assessment of progress in relation to an agreed baseline programme. An audit enables the early identification of potential programme delays and highlights the risks in respect of time to ensure successful delivery of the project. The audit will assess the criticality of delays and provide the opportunity to avoid formal disputes.
Consulberg provides an independent peer review of project status as an alternative to the reported status prepared for clients by their project advisers and contractors. Our consultants use the experience and forensic techniques gained from managing disputes to carry out accurate and efficient audits. We recommend strategies that when implemented, establishes the necessary controls which are invaluable in avoiding disputes.
We can identify, prevent and mitigate potential costly delays and disruptions before breaking ground and during project execution. As the complexity of projects increases, the chance of negative impacts and damages on projects increases. We draw upon years of experience to provide cost-effective solutions that work.
Our construction risk managers adapt to the continuously changing industry while maintaining best practices throughout the project. Consulberg provides risk management services by identifying and analyzing potential risks that may occur throughout the project and avoid (if possible) or mitigate potential cost overruns, delays and disruptions.
