Construction management is an area in which Beca AMEC has extensive knowledge and experience. This has been gained through our involvement in the design, construction and commissioning of a large number of heavy industrial projects, particularly for pulp and paper mills over the last 25 years.
We tailor our services to the size and complexity of the project, aiming to deliver a project that is built and completed as designed, on time and within budget.
The range of our construction management services covers:
- constructability reviews
- budget and schedule evaluations
- value engineering
- assessing alternative construction techniques
- structuring bid packages
- co-ordinating and reviewing daily construction activities
- quality assurance
- risk management
- health and safety.
During the preliminary design stage, we conduct a ‘constructability review’. This is an investigation that assesses the probable construction techniques required on the project. The review can identify and eliminate potential building/design conflicts long before construction begins, and allows for innovative construction techniques to be developed that may save time and costs. A project may have multiple reviews as Beca AMEC continues to monitor the project ongoing.
Once the constructability review is complete, attention is focused on laying the groundwork for the project with effective scheduling, procurement and cost control. The aim is to help the client achieve the right balance between capital cost and ongoing operating and maintenance costs.
