The Camp Lemonnier Aircraft Maintenance Hangar and Telecom Facility includes the construction of two single-story, steel-framed, pre-engineered metal buildings consisting of prefinished exterior-insulated metal wall panels, standing-seam insulated metal roof panels, and a reinforced concrete slab and spread footing foundation. The project also includes a metal pump house building, site work, associated systems, and equipment installation and testing.

Spire assisted the general contractor with the review and preparation of the baseline schedule, periodic schedule updates, and required technical reports. Spire also assisted in the identification of project delays and preparation of a time impact analysis (TIA) in both narrative and schedule form demonstrating the delay impact and illustrating the influence of each impact on the overall project completion and other interim milestones. Spire’s scope of work included review and validation of the baseline schedule, verification that baseline schedule adhered to the contract requirements and industry standards, preparation of periodic schedule updates and schedule technical reports, identification of project delays, preparation of the TIA and reports, and preparation of time-extension requests.

Spire’s project controls experts bring a comprehensive suite of skills and extensive field experience to the job site. We help project teams and management determine how far a project has progressed at any given time regarding schedule, cost, productivity, and risk and compare against contractual expectations, scope, performance criteria, and milestones. Controls can be applied to all phases of a project, from preconstruction to closeout.

Here are just some of the services our construction project controls consultants can bring to your next project:

Project controls are essential to keep complex construction projects on budget and on time. They help teams and stakeholders identify emerging risks early, before they become expensive, time-consuming problems. With advance warning, these issues can be mitigated or avoided altogether. Project controls also give leadership the data they need to set realistic expectations, manage subcontractors, and plan with confidence.

During the course of a project, program and project managers use controls to monitor time and cost expenditures and compare them to project lifecycle forecasts. They also rely on them to coordinate onsite execution with the milestones established during the design, procurement, entitlement, and pre-construction stages.
