MEET OUR TEAM "We tailor-fit our expertise and service delivery to meet your project requirements." Each of our consultant planners will approach the task of developing a programme by gaining an understanding of the scope of work, timescales, and relevant project phasing, whilst also observing how the key objectives of time, cost and quality are balanced. Our experts will work with you to identify the pertinent organisational management processes and contractual considerations that will impact the structure and management of the programme, bringing our collective and individual skills and knowledge to the table to add value to the service we deliver. Feedback is the key to successful two-way communication. We expect to maintain a schedule of pre-agreed periodic meetings with your team to provide constant communication, and to agree the required reporting process, giving you and your project team the foresight you need. What can you expect from an individual project appointment with Metisplan? High-level Planning SupportDevelopment of feasibility and strategic programming. Tender Stage and Procurement Planning With your procurement strategy decided, and a construction delivery programme ready, we can help minimise early procurement related delays by developing the Tender Event Schedule in a timely manner with the Commercial Manager, should we be appointed early enough in the delivery process. Correctly aligning the Cost Breakdown Structure with the Work Breakdown Structure will be key to this. Construction Delivery Programmes, and Progress Monitoring and ReportingCompilation of Target and Contract programmes (JCT contracts) and accepted programmes (NEC), allows us to review your project and to establish the work breakdown structure, sequencing, logic, phasing and constraints. When the project delivery is in-progress, we provide the progress monitoring and reporting necessary to keep you informed of project performance. Earned Value Management and ReportingWhere EVM is required by the client, either for a single project or for a portfolio of projects, we work closely with the commercial management team. This is first to align the Work Breakdown Structure with the Cost Breakdown Structure, then to fully cost-load the programme or programmes, generating an EV baseline against which project performance can be measured. Subsequently, a spending profile is integrated into the programme and from there Earned Value can be calculated. Forensic Planning and Delay AnalysisDelay Analysis using impacted as-planned, and as-planned versus as-built techniques, time-impact and analysis of critical path. This is supported by investigation of project records, documentation and interviews with key staff where possible.
