Helping clients meet the challenges of capital project delivery

clients meet the challenges of capital project delivery Public and private sector entities undertaking capital

Public and private sector entities undertaking capital construction projects face complex and often daunting challenges:

• Defining a myriad of design and construction parameters soon after a project need has been identified

• Creating cost and schedule forecasts for the entire project lifecycle

• Securing a commitment for project funding

• Developing a risk management program

• Procuring and managing delivery of highly technical professional services and equipment

• Controlling cost growth and schedule creep during performance

• Maintaining accountability for project expenditures

• Avoiding project disputes and liabilities
