Spire assisted Provident Realty Advisors with converting the historic Texaco building into luxury apartments and retail space called The Star, located at 1111 Rusk Street in Houston, Texas. The $95 million redevelopment project consists of a 410,000 SF property and includes 309 high-end rental units; ground-floor retail space; and a 9-story, 550-car parking garage. Spire’s team is providing project planning and scheduling services. The scope includes numerous planning sessions involving the superstructure, shell, rough construction, finishes, and commission-related sequencing and construction activities. Spire developed the baseline schedule and continued to provide periodic schedule updates throughout the project.

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 are 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, mitigating or avoiding issues altogether becomes possible. Project controls also give leadership the data to set realistic expectations, manage subcontractors, and plan with confidence.

During 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.
