project control for construction projects - critical path

Project Control Services

The Key to Effective Change and
Risk Management

Project controls provide the capability to reveal trends toward cost overrun and/or schedule slippage. Identifying those trends early is a major factor in ensuring successful project management and reducing risk. This is particularly important as projects become increasingly more complex and demanding.

Project planning provides the basis of effective project control, producing network-based CPM schedules, network calculations, resource scheduling, forecasting and ‘what if’ testing. Project control emphasises goals, the flow of information, time and cost control, and change and risk management.

Construction is a risk business. Project success comes from predicting and managing change and minimising risk by using the right expertise, procedures, tools and techniques. Critical Path provides a range of Project Control Services that support the project management function through each stage of the project process, from inception to handover. We provide planning, resource and cost modelling services and utilise the Earned Value (EV) approach for examining cost data in the context of detailed schedule information and key milestones.

Planning, resource, risk and change control functions are dependent on the ability of the overall Project Control system to provide accurate project information and progress data as and when required. Critical Path can work within your selected control processes and systems or can help develop and implement controls strategies from the outset. Either way, we ensure the system is able to provide the required data in the correct format by ensuring effective communication interfaces and data coding structures are in place.

Our Project Control Services include:

  • Control Systems Auditing
  • Planning Management
  • Resource Management
  • Risk Analysis
  • Change Management
  • Training

Our approach enables the clear determination and tracking of ‘what you got for what you spent’, which is normally difficult to identify on construction projects.
