And every successful project manager knows that project controls are essential guideposts for project planning. Project controls allow project managers to establish their time, cost, risk, and quality objectives and monitor their progress toward achieving these goals.
MBP’s data-driven approach to project controls combined with its team of experienced professionals offer clients solutions to effectively forecast, analyze, and influence project outcomes. Our consulting team supports our clients and their projects from Day One: from project initiation through planning, design, construction, commissioning, transition, and closeout. We are trusted advisors on some of the world’s most complex projects and programs.
Construction projects do not exist in a vacuum. Their complexities are greatly influenced by external factors, which in turn affects the level of risk the project faces. MBP provides our clients project risk management services which address both internal and external risks, known and unknown, insurable and uninsurable.
MBP approaches value analysis and optimization with one primary objective in mind: to assist our clients to make design and construction decisions which result in a project that meets functional requirements at the minimum expenditure over the facility’s lifetime. We apply this disciplined process not only to our clients’ projects but also to their operational processes and procedures.
A schedule is intended to be used as a tool to allow project participants to proactively manage construction and adapt to changing circumstances as they arise. MBP provides owners and contractors with insight into their project’s schedule performance. Through Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling, we can assist our clients to assess the status of the project, identify and mitigate delays, and expedite project completion.
MBP’s cost management provides our clients with critical cost data to develop project budgets and manage cost and risk throughout design, bidding, and construction. Cost management is interwoven through nearly every element of a project and accurate and reliable cost data is critically important. MBP develops project budgets, provides design phase estimates to verify design to budget, tracks project cost performance, and computes the cost of change.
