Project and Construction Management
TEO’s proven expertise in scheduling helps you conserve your most valuable asset—Money. Our time management begins before construction with the development of the master schedule, the primary controlling document for the entire project.
Throughout the project, we develop detailed schedules for each major activity. TEO’s scheduling techniques enable us to clarify the most complex project. We often step in to help owners whose ongoing projects are experiencing delays. Our experts troubleshoot schedules to pinpoint the sources of delays and develop viable “workaround” schedules to bring the project back on track.
From financial analysis to detailed cost data and projections, our cost management practices give you the information you need to make sound cost-related decisions. We let you know where the project is, how it got there, and where it is going by establishing a uniform code of accounts, evaluating and correcting budgets and estimates, and producing appropriate reports. Tools we use to help manage cost include independent estimates, value engineering, and life cycle cost analyses.
The most effective way for the owner to end up with a job well done is for TEO to help contractors maintain or improve their productivity and keep the project on
At the outset, we establish a plan to identify and assign responsibility for oversight activities and to monitor, report and prevent conditions that may affect quality. We help clients assess cost and scheduling factors, administer design consultant contracts and develop bid documents. During construction, TEO incorporates procedures for inspection, requests for information, submittals and change orders.
TEO understands that for owners of large, complex construction projects and programs, especially in the public sector, controlling claims has become a crucial concern. We are often hired for claims evaluation and resolution purposes. This experience has led us to adopt approaches to avoid or mitigate claims at the earliest possible stages. Before construction, TEO can help select the most appropriate contract strategy for accomplishing the work. We also head off problems resulting from improper sequencing of phased contracts through careful document review and scheduling. Once construction starts, our firm and prompt contract administration is the most consistent way to defuse claim issues.
