AREAS OF EXPERTISE

The PRG team offers decades of collective experience working with companies in the U.S. and across the globe.
Our process is simple:

  • First, we listen to the client to clearly define and document current state and future-desired state. Identify, “Where you are” vs. “Where you want to be.”
  • Second, we work with our clients to develop creative and cost-effective solutions to close the gaps and overcome key business challenges.
  • Third, we support action plan development and successful deployment of that plan. With a team of experts across multiple disciplines (strategic and technical), we bring solutions that deliver measurable improvement in business results.

The PRG team can evaluate your project execution needs then identify and recommend solutions for more effective outcomes. Our goal is to help our clients maximize capital efficiency. Our typical approach is ‘end-to-end’, starting during front-end planning and progressing all the way through commissioning and start-up, although we can add value regardless of the project phase entry point. From safety, quality, cost, schedule, work planning and all facets of project delivery, we can effectively  develop execution strategies and a continuous improvement process that increases the probability of more successful projects. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Project Management Fundamentals
  • Project Execution Planning
  • Digital Business Transformation
  • Team Building/Alignment
  • Work Process Mapping/Improvement
  • Quality Management/Improvement
  • Data/Information Management
  • Cost Management
  • Scheduling Management and Project Planning
  • Change Management
  • Project Risk Management
  • Multi-National Project Execution
  • Shutdown/Turnaround Planning

To complement our Project Execution Support services, we offer Construction Management Support services with a specific focus on construction-driven execution. We apply industry Best Practices to ensure the delivery of successful construction turnover at the end of the project. In addition to project staffing support, we provide direct consultation, coaching, mentoring and training to project teams of all sizes, whether it is for owners, engineers, contractors, or vendors. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Construction Management Fundamentals
  • Productivity Analysis and Improvement Strategies
  • Advanced Work Packaging/WorkFace Planning
  • Off-Site Fabrication and Modularization
  • Rework/Deviation Tracking and Mitigation
  • Site/Project Staffing
  • Labor Relations
  • Workforce Development, Attraction, and Retention
  • Workforce Skills Training
  • Craft Resourcing and Leveling per Trade
  • Staff and Craft Alignment
  • Site Infrastructure/Utilization
  • Site Services
  • Site Communications
  • Community and Public Relations
  • Facility Commissioning and Start-up

The PRG team can assist clients in evaluating all, or specific parts, of a safety program. We have experience in evaluating and/or developing safety management program components in the following areas: management leadership, hazard identification, hazard prevention and control, education and training, worker engagement, and overall program evaluation. Whether you are struggling with safety incidents or you want an independent analysis of your program to support continuous improvement, we are ready to help. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Construction Safety Management Systems (CSMS)
  • HSE Program Development/Assessment
  • HSE Audits

Our experienced PRG resources understand the need to engage in the early feasibility stages of the project to help achieve more effective front-end planning and conceptual engineering. This includes scope definition, project execution planning, and estimate development. We recommend early involvement from construction, commissioning, operations, and maintenance resources to reduce the risk of rework later in the project. We offer direct consultation, coaching, mentoring and staffing for your project teams. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Front-End Planning/Construction Readiness
  • Construction-Driven Planning
  • Estimating Reviews; Risk and Contingency Analyses
  • Engineering Coordination
  • Constructability Reviews During Design
  • Design for Safety
  • Design for Operability and Maintainability

Traditional construction projects are linear in approach. Project tasks are completed sequentially by the assigned entity and
then the next task begins. Generally speaking, minimal interaction occurs across all entities on the project. Lean IPD incorporates lean culture, principles, and tools into the construction process. Mutual trust is established from the onset of the project so all stakeholders (owner, engineering/architect, contractors, subcontractors, key vendors, etc.) can work as a team from the beginning of the project (or as early as practical) to achieve a common goal. With trust being established, early collaboration and open communication allow the entire project team to share their skills, knowledge, and creativity to identify better (safer, easier, faster, cheaper) ways of completing a project. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Lean Opportunity Identification
  • Lean Project Delivery
  • Lean Leadership and Culture Development
  • Lean Program Development
  • Collaborative Design Sessions (CDS)
  • Pull Planning (Last Planner®)
  • Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
  • Relational Contracting

Construction procurement is a complex process with a large number of available options and directions. Unfortunately, many projects fail because of a lack of integration and collaboration between project participants. Today’s projects tend to be large in size and highly complex, which makes it all-the-more important that a good procurement and contract strategy be established early in the project. This strategy should align all stakeholders toward achieving the owner’s business objectives. A well-designed procurement and contracting process should promote speed and capital efficiency. It’s not a “one-size-fits-all” situation – each project requires a unique approach that is customized to its scope, location, participants, risk profile, schedule, and cost objectives. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Contract Reviews/Negotiations
  • Dispute Prevention/Mitigation/Avoidance
  • Claims Management and Dispute Resolution
  • Project Financial Auditing Support
  • Strategic Sourcing
  • Advanced Procurement and Contracting Strategies
  • Contract Incentive Strategies/Stakeholder Alignment
  • Invoicing/Billing Support

As defined by our colleagues at the Construction Industry Institute (CII), materials management is a complex and comprehensive process involving people, organizations, technologies, and processes that manage the definition, sourcing, planning, quantification, supplier qualification, purchasing, supplier QA/QC, expediting, transportation, logistics, and control of materials and associated information across the life cycle of a capital project. Materials and related services account for a large percentage of a capital project’s total installed cost (TIC). Implementation of a materials management program contributes to predictable project outcomes, reduced costs, improved productivity, and quality. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Bulk Material Optimization
  • Logistics
  • Tool and Equipment Management
  • Advanced Supply Chain Data Management Tools

Beyond project execution, the PRG team also offers a suite of organizational and executive support services. Our team is comprised of former senior executives across a spectrum of owner and contractor organizations, with hundreds of years of collective experience in leadership, culture development and integration, business strategy and continuity, portfolio management, mergers and acquisitions, and other key executive competencies. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Organization Design/Competency Alignment
  • Leadership Development & Succession Planning
  • Strategic Planning
  • Capital Portfolio Management

To complement our traditional advisory services, we offer expert witness services with a specific focus on construction and engineering-related cases.

In addition to providing expert witness services, we can also support a law firm’s litigation team by advising on various technical aspects which are salient to a claim or dispute. Areas where PRG can add value include:

  • Expert Witness Services (State and Federal Court, and ADR)
