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.
MBP’s estimates are used for project budgeting, or life cycle cost analyses, as a tool to manage cost and risk at all levels of design, bidding, and for cost control during construction. Each estimate is tailored to the individual project and client needs.
Our Project Advisory Services help set initial expectations for the road ahead, promptly guiding our clients in making informed decisions and communicating progress throughout the lifecycle of a project. This includes the integration of technical, financial, and contractual expertise to manage risk and achieve both public and private sector goals. MBP has served as a trusted advisor in assisting public agencies with evaluating, programming, and executing capital projects using Public-Private Partnership. This includes assistance in selecting the right team members and formulating and negotiating an agreement that benefits the success of the project while protecting the interest of our clients.
MBP checks the project’s various disciplines (structural, civil, architectural, mechanical, etc.) for completeness, clarity, and buildable design intent. This process assures the owner that contract and construction documents are clear in their intent, and the project is buildable at a reasonable cost and within a reasonable time.
Our value engineering, or optimization services, focus on maximizing an owner’s investment by identifying performance enhancements or efficiency improvements in operational processes. These services yield improved longevity and efficiency, which in turn equates to reduced life cycle costs.
MBP provides owners and contractors with insight into their project’s schedule performance. Our critical path method (CPM) scheduling services allow clients to assess the status of the project, identify and mitigate delays, and expedite project completion.
Acknowledging risk as an integral part of project management enhances the success of a construction project. MBP’s risk management team, while recognizing the changing intricacies of construction processes, applies proven risk management methods and procedures throughout project implementation.
Earned Value Management (EVM) integrates the scope, schedule, and cost parameters of a project to evaluate overall project performance. EVM benefits owners and contractors alike by comparing planned progress with the actual value of the work in place.
