Delivering projects to the client's requirements
Project Management is designed to provide strategic management responsibility for delivering a project to the client's requirements. Schal ensures that the project is properly planned, phased, executed and budgeted. We manage and monitor the implementation of the project, including organisation of the resources and consultants required.
We all have a view on the role of the project manager, but whatever the size of your project, whether it is a small community arts centre or a new corporate headquarters we take the same diligent, detailed and robust approach. This involves getting close to you. Schal's Project Manager becomes part of your team to ensure that the project process remains in your control and is managed to achieve your goals. Our clients see us as their partners and not just their consultants.
Right from the start:
Our skill is to take a confused situation and bring it into sharp focus. Once it is clearly defined the way forward is usually clearer too.
Keeping on track:
Good housekeeping has to be part of every project. Schal's proven procedures and controls, implemented by experienced project managers, all help to ensure the smooth progress of the work.
Of course, contracts are important to give the project the security you need. Schal advises and appoints project teams, runs European procurement processes, selects contractors and administers all of these for you.
Tools for the job:
Our computer and internet based communications and information management systems are among the best in the industry.
The delivery of your project, completed on time, in budget, to your specifications, is what you pay for. And we don't stop there. We continue working with you, managing staff relocations for example, and making sure you get a final solution that meets all your requirements.
