Our contribution

Turner & Townsend has been commissioned for the following services:

  • schedule and cost control of the design and construction phases
  • contract management.

Making the difference

We began work on this project near the end of the basic design in July 2015. At this time, management tools were virtually non-existent.

We created, coordinated and implemented a high-level control schedule. Additionally, after examining the existing contracts, we found that the current payment plan of the architect did not correspond to the performance status of the design process. A new payment plan was negotiated, agreed upon and implemented.

A schedule and cost overview, as well as an interface overview, were created and agreed upon by all parties.
