Challenge: The owner of a community center needed support in closing the gap on a $6.5MM capital project that was approaching three years of construction. In the first two years, the project had only progressed 30% and additional funding would be needed if the project continued to slip on its completion date.
Solution: Develop a Capital Project Methodology (CPM) to provide a standard method for scoping, design and construction of the new asset, which included not not limited to, detailed design reviews, weekly construction meetings and a change order work process. The CPM enabled a better partnership with the general contractor an design architect which also addressed he schedule delays for 30+ independent subcontractors.
Results: Project managed by General Contractor, 2 years at 30% completion; Project managed by General Contractor with support of CPM 8 months at 100% completion.
Impact: $1+ million
