Project Controls is deeply intertwined with formal project management consulting. Sound owner project control is widely recognized as a key component of project success. Benchmarking results clearly illustrate that owners who retain their own project controls capability rather than delegate it to their contractors have the best overall project performance. APS possesses key resources that have owner experience in project scheduling and controls, including unique expertise in developing project schedules that can be refined as the project proceeds, integrating owner and contractor schedules, supporting cost and schedule assurance reviews, and establishing the proper processes to understand and manage the cost and schedule for the life of the project.
Our experience in managing the whole project controls process, as opposed to just one segment, allows us to prepare reliable project schedules for both the design and construction phases early in the project development stage. These schedules are monitored and updated periodically to identify potential problem areas so that they can be managed before the project is delayed.
