Ever more ambitious construction deadlines under complex conditions call for scheduling and schedule steering experts to ensure that our clients’ specified project targets are stably and securely achieved. In providing resource-oriented scheduling, we consider all of the important project processes, and all logistical parameters. This includes the phases of design, approval, tender and award, construction, commissioning and final inspection and, where required, the relocation process.

Together with our project partners, we put effective schedule controlling in place and, where potential divergences are identified, we develop effective countermeasures early on.

Main service components:

  • Scheduling feasibility studies/construction time optimization

By means of project-specific solutions and active controlling, we and the client’s team ensure stable processes, thus jointly achieving the project’s objectives.
