C.E.G.I. uses proven schedule control, cost control and quality assurance systems throughout the design phase to ensure that all contract documents are completed in a manner that will reflect a high quality facility which meets the needs and requirements of the occupant while at the same time remaining on schedule and within budget.
This approach to design which is accomplished by an inter-disciplinary team directed by our project director has resulted in over 400 successfully completed health care assignments, 380 commercial projects and 100 educational project assignments.
At the start of each project, the C.E.G.I. project director develops a project control schedule which outlines all key dates necessary for the successful completion of the project on time. Time frames are developed for each task within each phase.
Tasks and phases are arranged in sequence so that an outline schedule results which projects completion dates for each major design phase, construction phase and equipment move-in.
Tasks included within the schedule include not only design tasks, but also information gathering, review with local and state authorities having jurisdiction, client review and approval, quality assurance review and cost control review. Further, work by others not under the control of C.E.G.I. is outlined so that all persons will know when each task must be completed in order for the project to proceed on time and within sequence.
The outline project control schedule is reviewed with our client and all project team members to determine conflicts between projected task completion dates and commitments on the part of team members. Schedule is adjusted around conflicts and a final project control schedule is developed.
The project director reviews the project control schedule weekly to ensure that all tasks are being completed in sequence and on time to assure the orderly development of the design process. A monthly report is sent to the client and project team members outlining adherence to the project schedule or actions necessary to return to schedule.
The above described process has been utilized successfully on over 950 completed projects, since 1984.
