Project & Construction Management
Project Management is the process and activity of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals in scientific or daily problems. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.
The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the preconceived constraints. The primary constraints are scope, time, quality and budget. The secondary — and more ambitious — challenge is to optimize the allocation of necessary inputs and integrate them to meet pre-defined objectives.
PEI provides rigorous project management for all of our assigned activities. At PEI our project manager is responsible for accomplishing three primary objectives.
Project scope is the part of project planning that involves determining and documenting a list of specific project goals, deliverables, features, functions, tasks, deadlines, and ultimately costs. In other words, it is what needs to be achieved and the work that must be done to deliver a project.
Managing the project schedule involves planning the work and working the plan as follows: Defining the Activities - the high-level requirements are broken down into high-level tasks or deliverables. These are then broken down into activities and presented in the form of Work Breakdown Structure.
Project budgets, similar to resource plans, are a reflection of project work and the timing of that work. A comprehensive budget provides management with an understanding of how funds will be utilized and expended over time for projects or operations.
To this end, the project manager works with the program manager to establish and integrate our activities into the program scope and schedule. Our project manager establishes the milestones, deliverables, and task durations that accomplish the project objectives.
Our team provides professional project management that follows the principals of Project Management Institute and the requirements of the program. We understand and will participate in risk, issue, and change order management processes established by the program manager, and will maintain open, productive, and continuous communication with the program team at all times.
