Service Highlights

Our extensive experience in the construction industry underpins our service approach, which is designed to help stakeholders achieve their cost, schedule and quality objectives. We provide consulting services for project planning and implementation at all levels of an organization, with the aim of maximizing project performance and minimizing the risk of disputes.

02

Governance Assessment

We offer tools and techniques to help executive management implement effective project governance. By measuring the influence of management on project results, we determine the success of project governance. Our solutions are tailored to the specific needs of each client, offering assessments of project procedures and recommendations for bridging the gap between current processes and industry best practices. We identify high-risk projects during the planning and execution phases, raising awareness of these projects among managers.

03

Performance Audit

Our performance auditing services help clients optimize their return on investment. We review contracts for potential risks, assess estimates and budgets, evaluate project controls, validate schedules, verify insurance policies, track project expenditures, monitor scope changes, provide independent project updates, prepare cost forecasts and recommend performance solutions to protect the project budget and schedule. We can also assess your organization's or department's management structure, policies and procedures, and project controls.

04

Project Controls and Management Services

We participate in the development of critical path methodology schedules, project cost accounting systems, change order processes and other controls. We evaluate the effectiveness of existing controls against industry best practices at any stage of the project lifecycle. Our professionals provide ongoing project management support, including time and cost management, implementation of earned value management systems and other advanced project control services.

05

Dispute Prevention

To prevent costly litigation resulting from unexpected changes or damages not covered by the contract terms, we offer services such as claims strategy development, cost and schedule control and audit, and technical analysis. Our aim is to limit claims escalation and avoid litigation. In short, our services encompass governance assessment, performance auditing, project controls and management, and dispute prevention. We tailor our solutions to the specific needs of each client, to maximize project success and minimize risk and litigation.
