PMIS: Revolutionizing Owner-Contractor Relationships

Facility owners have historically been left out of the construction project management technology game, as most platforms and tools focused on innovations for contractors, architects and engineers.

Even so, PMIS usage among owners and contractors has room to improve to facilitate better project execution.

New P3 Resources Available

Public agencies developing infrastructure projects now have access to a guide that emphasizes factors local policymakers should consider before entering into a public-private partnership (P3). Additionally, a new study is available that focuses on comprehensive development agreements, which often are associated with toll road P3s.

To keep projects on or under budget, we consult with the client and coordinate plans, design specifications, phasing and operation methods with the design team and the state and local authorities. All of this is done during preconstruction.

Planning for the Unexpected: Minimize Risk With Project Portfolio Management

Change cannot be completely avoided, but its impact on the project can be minimized by defining a clear plan of action before a project begins; building strong, integrated lines of communication; and continuously assessing progress and emerging threats. By working together as a team and clearly defining goals and strategies for project delivery from the outset, project leaders and contractors can spot unexpected issues sooner to devise solutions that keep projects on track.
