Industrial Project Management

Project Management from Start to Finish

The many moving parts of an industrial project demand a project management approach that focuses on alignment at every stage. ACS proactively oversees your project’s construction engineering and management with a diligent eye on design detail to ensure strict quality control, improve safety, reduce changes, and control costs. Project success hinges on the quality of industrial construction management. That’s why it’s essential to assemble a team that includes a project manager, project engineer, and site supervisor, each equipped with the expertise and hands-on skills necessary to effectively oversee your unique facility construction project. This team will ensure the ongoing quality of subcontractor performance, uphold the design intent, and lead in resolving general construction and Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP) construction issues. Regular meetings, led by the site supervisor, will keep you informed of the project’s progress and contracting methods.

Industrial project management requires everyone to be on the same page at all stages of a construction project. Our construction project management services start with a kick-off meeting that includes a review start-up forms and manufacturer-specific information, then developing comprehensive equipment-specific testing procedures and documentation. We also conduct periodic observation testing, attend progress meetings, and request operations and maintenance manuals from design and construction entities. Contractors are responsible for completing static testing and equipment/systems start-up, followed by the submission of documentation for review. Furthermore, we review contractors’ maintenance programs for our client’s maintenance staff.

ACS tailors our services with flexible delivery to help improve project quality, minimize costs, and accelerate completion.

Supplier Selection and Management

We take a structured approach to keeping track of your suppliers and bids while evaluating and guaranteeing the best proposals based on scope, resources, communication, price competitiveness, and client validation. A detailed bid analysis matrix is key to selecting contractors and issuing contracts based on scope review and qualifications, confirmation of resources to meet project schedule requirements, communication clarity, and price competitiveness.

Cost Reporting

ACS project managers initiate and maintain project cost control procedures to develop detailed cost reports and forecast anticipated costs in line with owner reporting requirements. By establishing regular status and variance reports and procedures for evaluating, approving, and processing subcontractor change requests, cost fluctuations are consistently tracked for empowered decision-making.

Contract Management

Projects are seamless when project leaders maintain detailed, up-to-date cost information for all contractor, vendor, and general condition commitments. This means that all project members can review and check the status of any vendor and pending commitments, creating the advantage of widespread project visibility.

Schedule Controls

Effective schedule controls are essential to meeting deadlines. A master schedule accounts for internal project deadlines from start to completion and is an intrinsic part of every phase of the process. ACS project leaders work with your teams to continually update the schedule database through direct field observation during construction and maintain clear communication with all team members regarding schedule performance.

Safety Approach

Every construction project demands a distinct safety program tailored to the project with the input of a project manager, project engineer, and site supervisor as well as facility operators and engineers encompassing client requirements, site-specific considerations, and relevant safety codes. We ensure that onsite supervisors are well-versed in safety regulations and guidelines to enforce safety rules, conduct daily safety inspections, and provide necessary safety training to personnel.
