Our services are further enhanced by employing best practices developed and taught by leading associations in the A/E and construction industries, such as: * DBIA * PMI * CMAA * AACEI * ASPE
We provide technical support for the critical components of the project delivery including the definition of project management plans: project organizations, roles and responsibilities, communication and reporting, as well as, delivery processes. We provide the solutions for program and project management including: complexity with reporting, providing accurate project status, lessons learned and benchmarking between projects, as well as, the challenge of managing multiple projects at the same time.

The P&M methodology supports the use of industry standard best practices in planning and controls. Fundamental to these are the Project Management guidelines developed and supported by the "Project Management Institute (PMI)" and documented in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Additionally, we adhere to and implement the best practices of the “The Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering (AACE)”.
