Bluewater Project Management Services, LLC
Troubled Project Turnaround
When a construction project is in trouble, whether from internal or
external causes, defaulting the project can be the worst solution.
Often, if a systematic "gap" analysis is performed, recommendations
can be made to turn the project around.
When called in to address a troubled project, Bluewater
will review the work in progress, analyze past performance, review contract
documents and solicit input from the client. After a thorough analysis of
the problems encountered, Bluewater can make
recommendations. These recommendations are developed from schedule analyses,
and a written recovery plan and recovery work procedures are developed. If the
project can be recovered, Bluewater generates
resource-loaded, time-scaled schedules; detailed, short interval work plans,
equipment and craft utilization schedules, cash flow projections, staffing
requirements, and the earned value curves needed to support the project.
When recovering a troubled project, Bluewater places
great emphasis on developing a detailed work plan. This work plan is a
comprehensive narrative of the proposed work, citing methods of
construction, resource requirements, schedule duration, interface with
other trades, and sequencing of activities. Sequencing activities will
identify those that minimize or eliminate adverse impact to the project.
Work plans have been successful on all types of construction - commercial,
municipal and industrial - and on both new and "in progress" projects.
Detailed work plans with a clear schedule are the foundation for
converting a troubled project into a successful project.
Equipment utilization schedules can also be a key factor in turning a project
around. Reviewing material delivery schedules and rescheduling work
activities are all-important aspects in the development of an effective
equipment utilization schedule and, ultimately, an integrated recovery plan.
To default is rarely the best answer to a troubled project. The winning
solution is a successfully completed project, accomplished with proper
planning and attention to detail. Let Bluewater
help you accomplish a winning solution.
