PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION: PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL
We at concrete-pmc roll up our sleeves for your enterprise and, for the duration of your project, we take over the project control and management on your behalf.
Having defined the objectives in previous steps and finalized the contracts, now a team of experts takes over the further organization in the project implementation phase: Managing finances and the team, project controlling, contract management and, of course, reporting, document control and quality management.
WE IMPLEMENT THE FOLLOWING SERVICES FOR YOUR COMPANY:
PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND PROJECT CONTROL
concrete-pmc completely concludes your project, so that you and your team may concentrate on your core tasks. This saves time and money!
PROJECT COMMUNICATION AND PROJECT MARKETING:
The larger the project, the more professional it has to be communicated and marketed, to be successful. concrete-pmc provides your PR department with all necessary and reliable information, or, if such a department isn’t available within your organization, we represent you and your project within your company, as well as externally; competently, professionally and entirely in your best interests!
In order to ensure the project keeps running smoothly, all the stakeholders, already identified in earlier project development stages, need to be kept informed adequately and professionally about the developments in the actual project phase. concrete-pmc takes over this sensitive activity and keeps contact with this key-group in relation to your project.
We regard project controlling as a fundamental project management component. Professionally set up and utilized, this control instrument ensures that the project keeps running smoothly and indicates upcoming problems well in advance, to allow the timely implementation of corrective measures. If concrete-pmc takes over project controlling, we keep a careful eye on the progress of the project, oversee how resources are used and ensure that you as the project owner are fully kept in the picture, in particular with respect to whether the project objectives and costs comply with the agreed plans and budgets.
By means of effective cost controlling, we retain all contract terms as well as payment and inspection intervals for you under control. Incoming invoices shall be subject to a careful examination prior to their release for payment.
concrete-pmc can take the entire contract management for a project off your hands and assign this task to an excellent team of experts. This saves you lots of energy, headache and – finally – money!
The maximum efficiency can be achieved if the experts were already assigned with the related activities during the project development phase.
As already noted during project development, the term claims management refers to a particular part of the contract management and it mostly forms part of complex projects in the industrial and infrastructural business areas.
Claims constitute an enormous risk for you being the project owner, as they pop up suddenly and, according to “Murphy’s Law”, at the most inconvenient time of the project. You are only well prepared to deal with such cases, if during the early project development phase, you were smart enough, to assign the claims management to a competent expert team.
Sometimes the setup of structures for a professional claims management has been omitted during the project development stage. Economic reviews conducted at any point of the project implementation phase usually conclude that a lack of such a structure constitutes a considerable additional risk to the project. Any prudent project manager (at least if he comes from concrete-pmc) will pay great attention to this risk and will undertake preparatory actions, in order to ensure as a kind of “Plan B”, that, upon appearance of the first signs for upcoming major claims, competent legal advice can instantly be mobilized.
MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE
Each project process carries changes within, both planned and unplanned. The implementation of a properly structured change management procedure prevents you from experiencing unpleasant surprises, which usually pop up towards project completion, when contractors present invoices for some alleged but badly documented change orders from your side. If concrete-pmc takes care of the aspect, we ensure the correct execution of these processes, and maintain a consistent overview for you. Towards the end of the project at the latest, this will for sure pay you dividends.
REPORTING TO CLIENT AND TO FINANCIERS
Certainly you and most likely also the project financier will want to know at all times, how your project is progressing. Our projects are accompanied by a constant and especially comprehensive reporting process. An established ad-hoc reporting procedure shall ensure that in case of any remarkable event, an immediate report will be issued to the project owner.
PROJECT DOCUMENTATION CONTROL
We ensure that at the end of the project, the complete set of error-free project documentation will be handed over to you.
If problems evolve, we are at your side! We support you in the analysis of the crisis, develop proper strategies and introduce adequate corrective measures.
We take over your agenda in conjunction with technical surveillance and site supervision for the project.
QUALITY ASSURANCE, QUALITY CONTROL (QA & QC)
We establish an appropriate Quality Assurance System and accompany the project implementation phase with an adequate level of quality control measures, adapted to your project requirements and based on national and international standards.
SUPPLIER ACCEPTANCE TESTS
We have a wide knowledge about the requirements and applicable standards for factory and site acceptance tests. concrete-pmc is working together with various manufacturers, suppliers and service providers, as well as with testing laboratories and authorities.
COMMISSIONING AND INTEGRATION INTO OPERATION
To us, commissioning and integration of the new facilities and equipment into your existing operation structure form an important project part, in which we stay of course at your side. We make sure that the transition period will be as smooth as possible and with minimal disturbance of the operational system.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
At the latest during initial operations, your employees will have to cope with and safely operate the new systems. We arrange proper trainings in time, which shall be in utmost compliance with your operational requirements and relevant safety-standards.
