Project Planning

In today’s environment of Complex Projects, which is related to the use of schedules such as Gantt charts to plan. Complex Technical Terms and understanding of

  • CPM (Critical Path Method)
  • Float (Free Float / Total Float / Terminal Float) and how it relates to EPCM/EPC schedules and structures
  • Resource Loading
  • Schedule Density / Activity Density

And combining this with the contractual understanding of Complex Contracts such as

  • NEC3
  • JBCC
  • GCC

What differentiates FSC Consulting is the ability to draw on the required skills, expertise to advise and assist on the specific needs each client may require and deploy these to achieve the desired results the client seek. Through this network of associates and partners we provide value-added services to our clients, unparalleled by any other Consultancy, including Claims Writers, Professional Quantity Surveyors, Contract Administrators, Construction Lawyers, Expert Witness, Quantum Experts, Forensic Planners and Delay Analyst that bring Expert Experience obtained Globally and locally.

Subsequently, Progress Report within the project environment is imperative for the Project Team to understand the true status of their Project / Programme.  We assist Clients in High-Level Planning from Pre Contracts to monitoring and approval of Contractors schedules. We can guide Clients effectively through the “Gate Review Process” applying best practices and Risk Allocation for projects. We can effectively review and audit Schedules and provide a 14-point assessment review on the Quality of a Schedule.

Further, we develop Contractors schedule to ensure alignment with scope of work and maximize opportunities within the scope of work, this includes cost loading and resource loading of schedules for approval by the client. Once established and agreed, the project schedule become, what is known as the “baseline schedule”. Baseline Programs are an important part of any project, as they are the basis of Claim, Claim Avoidance and protecting Contractual Entitlement, and as such deserve the attention needed. A Properly Constructed Baseline can’t be overstressed. Further and external audits can be conducted by ourselves

Progress will be measured against the baseline schedule throughout the life of the project. Analyzing progress compared to the baseline schedule. Proper Updating and recording is of huge importance, when or if the event arises that the Party has to protect Entitlement such as Extension of Time, Disruption. Addition reporting that are now commonly asked for “earned value management” and earned Schedule, can be developed. It is imperative that for, both client and contractor, these are set up initially as baselines, to avoid disputes and resolve claims or extension of times amicably.

Is the data gathering, management and analytical processes used to predict, understand and constructively influence the time and cost outcomes of a project or program, thus reducing or resolving claims and disputes and the forensic analysis needed to understand the causes of failure and developmental delays and claims.

Through analysis of

  • Scheduling including development, updating and maintenance;
  • Cost estimation, cost engineering/control and value engineering;
  • Risk management, including maintaining the risk register and risk analysis/assessment;
  • Earned Value Management and Earned Schedule, including WBS, OBS and other breakdown structures,
  • Forensic Assessment for required diagnosis of schedule and cost
