MACS offers project and construction services to domestic and international clients. One of our strengths is obtaining competitive proposals from qualified and financially capable manufacturers and construction companies. Our preferred and recommended approach is to work with your in-house team, training them in the project management techniques used in program and construction management. Next we provide highly specialized experts to back up your team. We assist them in handling the more difficult and complex issues that may arise during the design and construction phase.
Our services include: development of a construction management plan, construction contract packaging strategies, training, development and implementation of project cost and schedule controls, construction contract risk assessment, facilitated scope flexibility and constructability reviews, disputes management assistance, construction disbursement control, and construction contractor certification and pre-qualification
We assist the client’s team with specialized staff needs like scheduling expertise, development of a Construction Management Plan, construction contract packaging strategies, training, development and implementation of project cost and schedule controls, construction contract risk assessment, scope flexibility and constructability reviews, disputes management, funds control, consolidated material and equipment procurement and construction contractor certification and pre-qualification.
These services have proved to be a way of simplifying the construction acquisition process, meeting schedule requirements with fewer disputes and scope changes, as well as increasing small business and minority/female owned business participation. Some of these services are exclusive to us and are not available from anywhere on the market.
We believe, by more fairly distributing the rights, obligations and liabilities of the contract to the various parties, the project owner can more effectively execute their capital procurement contracts. This claim will need many pages of explanation and proof, but utilizing a pilot project will decrease scope changes by as much as 50%, almost eliminating indirect cost disputes and claims, and providing the project owner with much greater control over the final outcome of their projects. Side benefits include greater small business participation and a decrease in project costs as a direct result of the increased small business participation.
Our construction and project management services include managing an awarded project from project start to completion. This process includes preparing a project work plan, schedule and budget, creating a management team to oversee the project and developing reports. The reporting structure includes identifying project milestones and reporting progress against the milestones. The construction management program includes managing change orders and contract close out sign-off.
