Project Manager

A successful construction investment project must have a good manager at all stages – from the creation of the idea to the end of execution. The manager must be able to connect all stages of implementation – each of these stages brings consequences to the other. Without overview of the entire process in terms of effects on final financial results, possible disputes between parties and economical or social effects during operation, the project might not succeed. We effectively take over this job for our clients.

Creating a vision of the goal

Creating a vision of the goal

Each investment starts from an idea – the investor has a brainchild. From an idea to execution the road is long – we HELP to begin it. We perform or advise the client in selection of contractors and ordering documents necessary for execution of the project: concepts, feasibility studies, technical designs, analysis, applications to the funding agencies. This stage of investment process is extremely important – success is dependent on its reliable execution. At this stage mistakes may occur, which will decide about disputes during the execution stage. At this stage withdrawal from the investment is still relatively cheap. At this stage the first economic forecasts can be determined and first decisions about choice of technology and methods have to be made. We created or advised on creation of several hundred such documents, for investments worth even more than 1 billion zlotys in various industries: water and sewage management, transportation infrastructure, waste management, commercial investments, public facilities.

Schedules

At the heart of planning an investment is the preparation of schedule of works or works program. Simplified, it should include: a list of all planned activities, relations between them, estimated deadlines of their execution and people who are responsible for them. Depending on the needs and scale of complexity of the project it may also be enriched additionally with: milestones, critical path of the project, costs of individual actions, necessary resources at each stage, etc. It should be the project’s roadmap which allows to control deadlines, resources, costs and adjustments.
