Integrating new technology into project controls processes is a challenging task, often necessitating extensive training or outside resource involvement. But when your projects and programs have outgrown your current processes, new business systems and methods can give you greater access to cost and schedule predictions that are more reliable.

Our team applies a deep understanding of engineering design and construction across a range of industries to identify the technology that solves your specific needs. Optimizing the use of capital funds and improving project execution, we cover the full range of portfolio and program management needs, including estimating, scheduling, cost management, reporting, collaboration, communication, portfolio and risk management.

Our primary strength is our people. We provide in-depth, multi-decade business experience in technology, program management, project controls, engineering and construction. We are vendor-agnostic, focused on developing recommendations based on your best interest.

With an emphasis on business culture and processes influenced and informed by industry best practices, we deliver end-to-end implementations, people change management, integration, operations and training.

We assess, plan, align and engage your stakeholders, using a hybrid-agile delivery model to build a recommended migration plan. Our team guides you through capital project portfolio planning and execution solutions, including hosting, enhancements, user support, integrations, and operations and maintenance. We can support on-premise, cloud or SaaS.
