Why Project Management Assistance?

Large capital projects become increasingly complex and risky, in a minefield of peripheral conditions, legal obligations, schedules, cost and resources constraints INSUFFICIENT TARGET DEFINITION



In order to improve the probability of success, it is crucial to identify and fix at the earliest stages potential quality and safety issues and minimise the risks of schedule delays, cost overruns or claims, from design to contracting to final inspections and commissioning. Needs for reliability and dependability.
Bureau Veritas Project Management Assistance Presentation

Our approach

Bureau Veritas provides independent professional advice and technical expertise to help you monitor efficient contractor performance to maintain time, costs, quality and safety controls throughout the construction project duration.







Because a construction project is a function of budget, schedule and quality in an uncertain environment, we can assist you in:
Appraising the right level of objectives from the start Assessing adequate project process and controls to meet the objectives Identifying project risks and corrective measures / actions to avoid / mitigate design

faults and construction defects, maximising hence project value
