The 239,600 square foot El Paso Federal Courthouse consists of 11 courtrooms and will serve 13 judges, five resident district judges, two senior judges, five magistrate judges and one court of appeals. The courthouse is located on a 3.5-acre site in El Paso’s central business district.

Spire was asked to perform an independent third party review of the New United States Courthouse construction project in order to ascertain the probable time required to complete the Project. A detailed site visit was performed to record all remaining work and rework required to achieve substantial completion on the $75 million project. The project schedule was recreated in order to predict a reasonable substantial completion date and was monitored to ensure the project remained on track.

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.
