Project Risk Management
BRG offers a range of comprehensive and customized consulting services—from the initial planning phase through completion—designed to minimize risk and optimize results on your construction project.
Best practices and lessons learned.
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.
BRG experts have developed and implemented a proven framework addressing project challenges like 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. BRG offers a range of comprehensive and customized consulting services, from the initial planning phase through completion, designed to minimize risk and optimize results on your construction project.
The project risk management consulting strategies recommended by BRG are based on best industry practices from our extensive practical design and construction experience, coupled with lessons learned from our dispute resolution practice.
