project management

control and accountability

Projects all go through a lifecycle, with the stages often referred to as process groups.  The five process groups are:

  1. Project Initiation
  2. Project Planning
  3. Project Execution
  4. Monitoring & Controlling
  5. Project Closing

Within each process group, a project manager uses one or more of the 10 project management knowledge areas defined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK):

  1. Project Integration Management
  2. Project Scope Management
  3. Project Schedule Management
  4. Project Cost Management
  5. Project Quality Management
  6. Project Resource Management
  7. Project Communications Management
  8. Project Risk Management
  9. Project Procurement Management
  10. Project Stakeholder Management

Having a dedicated project manager and a defined project management process helps ensure your project is successful.

We can act as an Owner's Advisor, as your Agent, as your contractor's Consultant, or in an alternate contractual relationship that best suits your business needs. In any case, there is the opportunity for us to provide project management support.

Each project is unique, and each project team has unique requirements. Depending on the team and your requirements, we will customize our project management approach and the tools we use.

One of the most important decisions an Owner needs to make is the type of project delivery model. Three of the most common approaches are referred to as: design-bid-build; design-build, and; construction management. We can help you work through the implications of each strategy, and assist you in determining the most appropriate model for your project. Once a project delivery model is determined, we can then provide guidance and resources to help you manage the various aspects of the project that remain your responsibility to coordinate.
