Accurate estimates form the basis of cost plans and enable a detailed comparison and evaluation of project options. CGI has significant industry experience in the compilation and conduct of comparative reviews of preliminary and detailed cost estimates across several market sectors.
Planning and Programming
Programming is a key component in the planning of a project. CGI can assist in the detailed preparation of project schedules as well as delivery programmes including risk adjusted schedules. In developing project schedules CGI can also provide guidance on developing and presenting sequencing and staging methodologies as well as constructability assessments.
A formal risk management process provides a structured method of identifying and analysing project risks and opportunities which then enables the development of treatment strategies. CGI utilises software modelling tools such as @Risk and Pertmaster to enable informed decisions on risk exposure, adequacy and allocation of funding provisions and confidence in target completion dates. The risk management process is also vital in contractually allocating risk in an optimal manner.
