CPM Schedule Analysis

SCHEDULE AUDITS AND TECHNICAL EVALUATION

Feel confident with project schedules from in-depth and objective analysis of building constructability and compliance.


We perform audits and technical evaluations to ensure that proposed construction processes are practical and the overall construction plan is feasible. Our analysis includes verifying whether the work can be completed within the proposed timeframe while meeting all necessary milestones and phasing requirements.

Additionally, we review to ensure compliance with solicitation requirements for fair and objective evaluations. By adhering to these guidelines, we minimize uncertainties and reduce risks for our clients, thereby enhancing the likelihood of a successful evaluation process.

SCHEDULE & COST TRENDING

Cost Analysis & Estimating

Validate contractor cost proposals to ensure they’re fair and reasonable and receive ongoing estimating support for contract modifications.


We support construction teams with cost analysis and estimating services throughout the construction phase. We assist with modification processes by preparing cost estimates, including Independent Government Estimates (IGEs).

We additionally analyze contractor cost proposals to ensure they are reasonable, facilitating negotiation processes to resolution.

COST ANALYSIS & ESTIMATING

Confirm, quantify, and proportion responsibility for delays with data-driven, objectively supported schedule analysis.


Our extensive experience with delay analysis encompasses techniques such as time impact analysis (TIA), fragmented network (fragnet) analysis, Requests for Equitable Adjustments (REAs), and claims.


Our approaches include the application of industry recommended practices, including AACE 52R-06 (Time Impact Analysis - As Applied in Construction) and AACE 29R-03 (Forensic Schedule Analysis).

Pinpoint schedule and cost variances and patterns to gain insight into the direction of the project.


We simplify data-heavy schedule information into easily digestible presentation formats and offer briefings to project stakeholders and executive leadership. Our schedule and cost trending visuals provide a clear picture of project health, including root causes driving patterns and trends in performance.


We support the cost and schedule trending requirements for USACE Mega Project quarterly updating (ECB 2016-16).
