Our specialists have the proven ability and expertise to manage complex projects. We identify issues and solve conflicts before they become problems, using standardized procedures and processes that consistently provide excellent outcomes. We focus on ensuring that your projects are delivered safely, on time, according to the project documentation and within budget.
Our expertise is focused on representing owners throughout all phases of planning, design, and construction. As owner’s representative, our approach focuses on optimizing design and construction costs, project delivery schedule and maintenance costs, while maximizing project value through an efficient communication.
We ensure that the owner’s interests are kept. We represent the owner’s interests and we are the connection between the broker, the design team, landlords, contractors etc.
Our services are usually provided to:
- monitor the design development process in order to ensure the project scope is achieved;
- monitor the overall project budget (including non design/ construction related costs etc);
- monitor the bidding process;
- get proper legal assistance in signing contracts with supliers of products and services;
- monitor construction related activities,
- monitor project close-out and occupancy;
- move and relocation.
These are the main functions we typically perform as the owner’s representative. There are certainly others and, depending on the size, complexity and experience of the owner or role may vary.
COST & SCHEDULE MANAGEMENT
CONADI is expert in providing cost, planning, and schedule management services for projects in multiple industries. We provide owners constant feedback and information to ensure successful project execution.
Effective planning management requires setting and maintaining detailed program schedules for all project phases.
In fact, the schedule management starts well before construction begins, ideally in the planning phase, where each task associated with design, bidding, construction and commissioning is carefully scheduled in order to avoid delays. The planning includes sub-plans related to: the objectives, the design, the construction, the revision of the activity plans of the contractors, the setting of the deadlines and the evaluation plan of the final corrections.
Using the critical path method (CPM), we are constantly developing and updating the general plan that centralizes the stage of all activities for each phase of execution of very complex projects.
Our cost management processes actively control costs during all project stages, providing to the project participants a clear financial picture at any time, allowing team members to make right decisions. In addition, integrating cost and schedule data from each project allows us to identify potential interferences with impact on the final budget, often before program/project milestones are affected.
PROJECT DELIVERY CONSULTING
Choosing the correct project delivery method is an important step in ensuring success. While there are advantages and disadvantages to each method - depending on schedule and budget restraints and project complexity - CONADI ensures that each method is carefully considered when developing an overall implementation strategy. We have extensive experience working with a wide range of project delivery methods, including Construction Management at Risk, Construction Management for Fee, design-build, lump sum, design-bid-build, cost reimbursable and others.
CONADI has developed a wide variety of contract templates, including contracts for professional design services, design-build, fixed-price construction, job order contracting, construction management and program management at risk.
PROJECT REVIEWS & AUDITS
CONADI performs the following type of audits:
- contracts and related annexes
- the requests to change the project and their opportunity;
- cost analysis of the project;
- the impact of the changes on the budget and execution schedule;
- procedural conformity of requests for change;
- fulfillment of the obligations assumed in the design and execution contracts;
- the usage rate and productivity of resources;
- efficiency of design and execution.
