PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Projects completed on time, within budget, and to the required quality standards.

Project management services refer to the comprehensive set of skills, tools, and techniques used by construction professionals to plan, execute, and control a construction project from start to finish.

At Invise our goal is to ensure that the project is completed on time, within budget, and to the required quality standards.

The project management process starts with the pre-construction phase, where we work with our client to establish the project’s objectives, scope, and budget. This includes identifying the project’s requirements, defining the work breakdown structure, and selecting the project team.

During the construction phase, we will oversee the day-to-day operations of the project. This includes scheduling and coordinating the activities of the project team, managing the project’s budget, and ensuring that the project is on track to meet its objectives. We will also ensure that the project complies with relevant building regulations, statutory requirements and safety standards.

In the post-construction phase, we will ensure that the project has been completed to the required quality standards and that all project deliverables have been met. This includes conducting a final inspection of the project and ensuring that all documentation is complete.

Some of the specific services offered include:
