There are many causes for construction cost and/or schedule growth. Most – not all – can be anticipated and controlled (or eliminated) where Client, Consultants and Contractors work together to manage them. Limiting changes during construction generally results in greater value for all participants.
PSMJ’s global experience in managing construction provides an accurate perspective on the complex challenges and effective methods for minimising cost/schedule growth once construction starts. Clue: It starts before design starts.
Plain truth: If you want to control construction cost and schedule growth, you have to take control of it; there is no other way. The question is: How to do that? If you are a designer, control is indirect, but indirect control can still be highly effective if you know how. If you are a contractor or subcontractor, control is direct, but still requires that you know how to do it.
