In 2015 DFW needed to understand how well the programme was progressing against original objectives and whether risks to on-time delivery were being appropriately managed. Establishing the right project controls, to deliver the programme in line with published time and budget specifications, was essential to maintaining full stakeholder support.

Through our experience on over 140 airport projects around the world, we provided estimating, cost management and scheduling services, and supported DFW to identify where risk management could be improved with stronger control processes and procedures. Having made recommendations, we were commissioned to implement a number of changes that will help make DFW’s construction projects more efficient.

Making the difference

  • Greater predictability: establishing certainty of project outcomes through analysis and recommendations, and providing a clear view of progress and implemented changes.
  • Close collaboration: aligning our approach to become an integral part of the DFW team with jointly defined goals to deliver the best results.
  • Consistent processes: applying our cost management processes across each element of the programme to give DFW confidence in cost data.
