One of the key drivers to overall project success is successful management of the construction effort. Sand Hill Inc. performs Construction Management services for owners, construction managers and contractors. The key factors to any project are the schedule, budget and quality. These are of elevated importance during construction as this phase is among the most expensive, intense and time consuming.

It is important to identify the stakeholders that should participate in aligning these key factors. Since many stakeholders may exist, communication is essential. Sand Hill Inc. can assist in making communication flow quickly and accurately.

With Construction representing so great a percentage of cost and time on a project, the effective management of that phase of a project weighs heavily in the overall success of the project.

Many industrial clients have profitable equipment in operation that requires periodic maintenance or repairs. Downtime for that equipment can be very expensive as productivity is essential for profit. Sand Hill Inc. has shutdown planners and schedulers who have achieved world record times in minimizing lost production from project and maintenance work.

Change Order Schedule Impact Analysis

Projects are impacted by various events during every phase. Many of these have the potential of causing significant losses in schedule, cost or quality. The key is to manage these issues to avoid delays, cost increases or sacrifice of project scope. Sand Hill, Inc. will assist your team in understanding the impact of changes to the project plan as early as possible, to provide the greatest opportunity to incorporate or mitigate the change without impacting the success of the project. The utilization of what-if analysis can help mitigate impacts and provide data that allows the project team to make the best decision possible. Often, it is the outside-the-box thinking and strategies that lead to innovative solutions to navigate successfully through such potential pitfalls.

Earned Value Management

The Project Management Institute “Practice Standard for Earned Value” calls Earned Value Management (EVM), “Management with the lights on.” EVM assists in good project management by ensuring planning and control of cost and schedule performance. Sand Hill, Inc. will create a baseline that contains tasks of manageable level, unambiguous management responsibility and budgets. The next step is to measure and analyze performance against the baseline by recording resource usage, objectively measuring the physical work progress, analyze and forecast cost and schedule performance and take appropriate actions to address any performance shortfalls.

Resource Planning and Analysis

Sand Hill Inc., in conjunction with other project resources, can effectively plan and allocate resources in the manner which will provide the most efficient project completion possible. As the project variables change, analysis of project resources and deployment plans can drive a clear path to project completion to avoid serious risk of delay or project failure.
