It’s about what could be better
Following a successful start, they wanted an independent review of the project to date. It’s always about what could be better, so Cube focus on the reality of programme progress, procurement status, client relationships, design development and supply chain management.
With an inherent knowledge of the project, having contributed to the technical coordination within the tender submission, not only did Cube have the right experience to fit in with their project team, we also had an understanding of the complexity of the build, the project challenges and best practice deliverables identified within the bid document.
This insight into key project milestones set the base line for the project health check, a necessity given the incredibly unique nature of the building.
Our focus and independent perspective gave the divisional director and project leadership team an objective appraisal of performance indicators. These observations were turned into practical recommendations to positively impact the project completion.
Proactive planning, procurement, design management, quality…It’s all in the review
It was essential for our client to be better able to review the practicalities of their project processes. How do they facilitate the deliverables and client needs? Is the process being implemented to accurately report and monitor the project status? What does live documentation tell us about any new project priorities?
Working with their project team we evaluated all contributing project documentation to establish the baseline of Health and Safety performance, design development, programme, procurement, and supply chain engagement. This information then provided the opportunity to consider next actions.
In this particular case, design development had drained resources and delayed formal procurement, so the programme critical path was adjusted to reflect the actual procurement status and amend the build sequence to minimise delays and accommodate the outstanding design development periods.
Contributing construction expertise
Drawing on Mark’s extensive construction delivery background and expertise, our project health check helped provide a clear path of recommendations based on the live project status.
Challenging team relationships and supply chain complications only serve to narrow objective planning on the project, so our independent approach provides complete visibility of the whole project and offers best practice options for the team to implement.
