- 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. Currently, the project is within both schedule and budget.
