With larger projects it makes sense to involve a project controller who will competently secure the client's interests and effectively ensure that the client's objectives are met throughout the project. To achieve this, it is not sufficient to be experienced in the design and execution of construction projects. Specialist project management skills are a mandatory requirement for the success of a project.
In the complex, cash-strapped, high pressure world of modern construction, what do you do when something goes wrong? This work looks beyond the best-case scenario to give project managers, contractors, architects and engineers the tools to prepare effectively for the unexpected.
