The Holcim Cement Manufacturing Plant is the largest single-kiln cement factory in the world. Valued at nearly $1 billion, the facility is capable of producing 4 million metric tons of cement per year and supplies the Midwest regional market from the Gulf Coast to Minnesota. 

Spire was retained by J.T. Thorpe and Son, Inc. to develop, update and analyze construction critical path method (CPM) schedules for the subcontractor on the project.

Spire’s scheduling services led to the effective coordination and sequencing of the workforce.

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.
