Project Controls

With better data you can make better decisions. Our experts have extensive experience of developing processes to collect, manage and analyse data to enhance understanding of current project performance and forecast future performance more accurately. We know how to establish robust project structure and controls processes that allow for effective KPIs to be used throughout the entire project life cycle, making it possible for you to constructively influence your project’s time and cost outcomes.

Monitor and control project changes

On projects it is imperative to establish a well-supported cost and schedule baseline to monitor and control project changes. A key component of our project control expertise is establishing KPIs for escalation of mitigation or action. Our data collection methods will keep you informed of your project’s performance, from a summary level of issues to a thorough investigation into root causes.

Understand project performance better

Robust structures and transparent processes make it possible to generate aligned cost and schedule data, improving understanding of a project throughout its life cycle. Using our experience in cost management, scheduling and risk management, we can provide you with aligned information as part of an integrated project control approach. You will be able to make informed decisions based on a comprehensive understanding of your project’s performance.

Make data-driven decisions

A key purpose of project controls is to establish a framework for collecting, analysing and reporting data in a controlled and systematic manner, so that decisions are based on the best available information. We have the expertise to develop project structures that support informed decision-making, establishing key communication channels to keep you updated about costs, schedules, changes and risks.

Streamline your communications

Project control information must be processed quickly, allowing for analysis to be conducted on key issues and the findings communicated efficiently to project participants. We can develop digital platforms that will streamline your communication of resourcing issues and early indications of delays, cost forecasting and expenditures, baseline variances, and risks and opportunities.
