Project Execution Planning
All successful projects share a common foundation: implementation of an effective, formalized program. The execution plan is developed based on the key results areas identified during the partner alignment meetings and it must objectively communicate the order of operations and operational controls.
The execution plan becomes the strategic road map for the project, establishing the manner and methodology for Construction Phasing, Site Access Planning, and Subcontractor Mobilization. We integrate checks and balances in the form of milestones and reporting activities to verify that key results are achieved and to foresee where tasks may be getting off track so that we can correct course before it impacts the critical path.
The profile of project control influence demonstrates the importance of focused up front planning. The project team’s ability to change the course of the project is on a declining trajectory from project conceptualization. As time passes and funds are expended, changes in the project scope or design are increasingly more difficult to implement and can result in substantial added costs or schedule delays. The key turning point occurs at the outset of construction.
