Project Management & Controls
Delivering a project on time and within budget requires a combination of technical and management expertise; a sound and sustainable strategy; and proven project development, design, and construction administration practices. When applied throughout the life of a project, this approach enhances process transparency and performance accountability and optimizes results.
Effective construction project management
BRG’s Global Construction professionals can support or evaluate the process for project development, design, construction administration programmatic standards, work practices, and systems. BRG also has extensive experience providing guidance regarding project governance, contracting strategy, project staffing, and development of an effective organizational structure.
Our teams develop and implement a proven framework addressing project challenges—including effective contemporaneous project progress analysis, performance, and risk monitoring—to timely and accurately status the project, allowing the owner to make informed decisions to optimize results while containing and mitigating potentially contentious issues and claims.
Experienced team of construction professionals and consultants
The consulting strategies recommended by our experts are based on best industry practices from our extensive practical design and construction experience, coupled with lessons learned from our dispute resolution practice. Our strategies support effective project development, design, and construction administration while helping to minimize the likelihood of delays, disruptions, cost overruns, claims, and disputes.
BRG’s global team includes many construction professionals with extensive hands-on project experience as owners, as well as designers, contractors, estimators, cost accountants, schedulers, project control experts, project managers, and construction business managers. Our construction practice professionals also have decades of dispute resolution and expert testimony experience.
Our professionals can also assist in contemporaneous and after-the-fact evaluations of project closeout and cost-reconciliation issues, including change-order entitlement and quantum evaluations, reasonableness of punch list and inspection content, and evaluation of defective work.
