Spire Launches New Project Controls Team to Drive Successful Projects

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 22, 2022 – Spire Consulting Group, LLC. (Spire) announces the launch of its Project Controls service line to help owners, developers, and general contractors better manage their next construction project. Spire’s Director of Project Controls, Rod Francovalle, brings more than 20 years of experience with planning and implementing projects around the globe. Spire’s background as an expert in construction dispute resolution gives them a distinct advantage in understanding, predicting, and preventing the plethora of issues that can occur during a construction project without superior project controls planning. As Spire expands this week with its new service line due to increasing demand in this area from its clients, they are ready to help teams and stakeholders identify emerging risks early – before they become expensive, time-consuming problems. As specialists in project controls, Spire’s responsibilities span the gamut of a project—from monitoring costs and schedules to managing risks of all kinds from start to finish.

Spire offers:

  • A straightforward approach consisting of metrics for planning, measurement, comparison, and recommendations.
  • Laser focus on establishing solid schedules and budgets early in a project with buy-in and ownership from all project stakeholders.
  • Easy-to-use dashboards to report on a project’s health, status, and salient trends.
  • Increased efficiency, decreased delays and cost overruns, and fewer claims and costly litigation.

“I’m excited to announce the launch of our Project Controls service line to enhance our value proposition as a full-service, fully integrated construction consulting firm. We’ve brought in Rod Francovalle to lead this service line because of his 20+ years of experience providing effective processes and procedures for projects around the globe. And while Spire has provided Controls services in the past, due to our remarkable growth in the last few years, we are expanding with a dedicated Project Controls service line. We know that offering our clients excellent Project Controls will not only help with identifying emerging risks, but also provide data to potentially increase efficiency, and decrease delays and cost overruns. I’m proud to officially add this Spire service line, especially since it complements our existing ones in Dispute Resolution and Project Management.”
