Assembling the right team for your project is a critical component for its success. Identifying the expertise needed and selecting the most qualified to design and build the project, requires significant research; but more importantly, it requires a cohesive team. When there are gaps in communication there is greater potential to have;
- Gaps in scope
- Dissimilar interdisciplinary specifications of systems and components
- An abundance of RFI’s and Change Orders
- Operational Issues
KMI understands these are areas that cost time and money to remedy and works to establish communication protocols needed to keep the team aware, on target and working together.
The Art of Managing the Design
Without a strong management team focused on the project requirements throughout the design phase, a project can stray off course by the end of design, leaving the Owner potentially facing budget overruns, an underestimated schedule for completion or a design that does not meet expectations. These issues are not uncommon. To mitigate problems during the design phase, KMI provides leadership and direction by integrating with the design team to provide constant feedback on design estimates, schedule development, constructability, and compliance with project requirements. A properly managed design process should have a smooth and timely transition into procurement and construction.
Managing from the Ground Up
The construction process requires coordination and management to keep the process flowing, maintaining quality and schedule, and controlling risk. KMI implements a structured process to operationalize the management component of constructing the project.
The leadership role is paramount during the construction phase. A project has its best opportunity for success by assisting the Contractor with;
- Activity forecasting
- Change management resolution
- Regular updates on issues and solutions
- Utilization of an intuitive Project Management Information System
- Commitment to quality control
