Construction Management Consulting

Team Builder Solutions (TBS) is a dedicated group of industry experts that make up the Construction Management Team, with the experience to achieve successful project outcomes from pre-construction to close-out. We are at the forefront of project delivery, with Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) as cornerstones to our process.

  • Construction Management Process Development
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Project Set Up
  • Construction Management Services
  • Best Practice Training

The Construction Industry is competitive, fast paced, and always evolving. TBS has extensive experience in both large and small Cap-Ex (Facility Project Portfolios) projects. While no two constructions projects are the same, the responsibilities within these projects require consistency and rigour on the behalf of the Construction Manager (CM).

Construction contracts form the basis of the relationship between parties. TBS provides a full scope review of all contracts to ensure execution of the project is held to the standard of the contract put forth.

  • Complete a methodical review and analysis of contract terms

The work of a CM requires an organized, reflective, and consistent plan for how the scope of work will be performed. Keys to success involve;

  • Defined verbal and non-verbal communication processes
  • Cross functional teams comprised of Owner, Engineering, Procurement, and Construction
  • Roles and responsibilities clearly assigned to each team
  • Access to previous projects regarding standard processes and procedures, with the knowledge and ability to implement revisions that are tailored to the current project

It is imperative to have a properly planned and pragmatic construction schedule.

  • Timely, co-ordinated and efficient
  • Identification of potential issues that may impact project completion and/or profitability
  • Ongoing consistent management and updates to scheduling
  • Harness Best Practices to ensure schedule and planning process meet project objectives

Team Builder Solution’s early engagement with each project defines delivery methods that work for the clients’ specific needs. Comprehensive feasibility studies assist us in identifying the right method for projects of varying degrees of complexity. Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) brings transparency and accountability to complex projects, and the addition of software can put clients back in charge of their investments. TBS has exclusively partnered with select software platforms to add value certainty to the project execution process.

To ensure seamless adoption of AWP Best Practices, TBS develops a client specific AWP program complete with:

  • AWP Procedures
    • Process Flow Development
    • Work Package Formats
    • RASCI Charts
    • KPI’s
    • Constraints
  • Training and Mentoring of all Stake-holders
  • AWP Program Management
  • SME Deployment to project sites

Field Progress management is typically implemented in larger projects, however TBS does this on every project, large or small. It is a large undertaking that involves a collaborative effort from all construction disciplines.

  • It is critical to review progress to-date in order to forecast remaining work and schedule needs
  • Contract reporting requirements must be taken into consideration
  • All reporting platforms must be integrated within the client project management framework

Reliable reporting of the right data can provide insight into key project indicators and help identify diversions from the project’s initial plan. Basic project controls reporting includes measurements such as;

  • Contract profitability
  • Installed quantities
  • Labour hours
  • Productivity and schedule performance
  • Constraints management
  • RFI & change status management

Most construction projects experience varying degrees of change, typically in the work scope. There are some key factors to maintaining success;

  • The ability to identify, analyze, and document any change during a project’s lifecycle
  • A successful CM should reflect and implement:
    • What is the status of the project now?
    • What can we forecast our status to be in the future?

Subject Matter Experts

A subject matter expert (SME) provides knowledge and expertise in a specific subject, technical area, or business area in a project/program.They are typically found among those who have been in their roles for a long enough period of time for their knowledge and skills to be “second nature”. An SME should know their job well enough that they rarely have to look up information and, if they do have to, they know exactly where to find the information.

  • Define procedures or standards, since they have the knowledge of the right or best way to execute a task
  • Define performance objectives, and determine acceptable performance levels
  • Provide recommendations for procedural improvements
  • Understand the language, terms, or jargon in their area of expertise
  • Understand requisite knowledge that underlies effective decision-making and is able to describe where anomalies or flaws may occur in the decision-making for their area of expertise
  • Act as the “go to” person within a department or function for questions and problems within their area of expertise
  • Explain their area of expertise clearly to others
  • Not only answer how things are done, but why

  • Ensure the facts and details are correct so that the project’s/program’s deliverable(s) will meet the needs of the stakeholders, legislation, policies, standards, and best practices
  • Support the definition of processes and policies, supply business rules and procedures, and communicate the contexts in which the rules, processes and policies are applied
  • Accurately represent their business units’ needs to the project/program team
  • Validate the requirements and deliverables that describe the product(s) or service(s) that the project/program will produce
  • Bring information about the project/program back to the customer community
  • Provide input for the design and construction of test cases and scenarios, and may also validate executed test results
  • Provide input into and/or create and execute user documentation and training material
  • Test the product(s) or service(s) towards the end of the project/program (user acceptance testing), using and evaluating it for accuracy and usability, providing feedback to the project/program team

Education and Training

Team Builder Solutions facilitates the success of change initiatives by addressing and aligning the people, processes and technologies involved in the deployment of a new program. Our team works closely with clients in designing a training and mentoring program to meet the specific needs of the organization and/or project.

Today’s construction project execution environment is a web of complexity and tight schedules which requires that stakeholders are aligned during all aspects of a project.

Integrated project delivery (IPD) seeks efficiency and involvement of all participants (people, systems, processes, and best practices) through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction. IPD combines ideas from integrated practice, like Advanced Work Packaging, and lean construction principles. The objectives of IPD are to increase productivity, reduce waste (resources not utilized to their best efficiencies), avoid time overruns, enhance safety & quality, and reduce conflicts between the project stakeholders (owners, engineering, procurement, and construction) throughout the project lifecycle.

Advanced Work Packaging has been identified by Industry Leaders as one of the most promising approaches for much needed improvements in project safety, quality, material management, and productivity. It is an enhanced model that is the next logical step from current work packaging practices, encompassing full project life cycle strategies from pre-planning to turnover.

It is built on the understanding that focus on front end planning and detailed engineering leads to improved execution at the work front. Early project set-up and collaborative planning set the framework for coordinated construction, engineering and procurement work packages (CWPs, EWPs, & PWPs). This leads to more effective planning, execution, and monitoring of Installation, Test, and Turnover Work Packages (IWPs, TWPs, & TOPs) through WorkFace Planning

TBS is global leader in this process and can provide training and mentoring for all aspects of AWP.

Traditional Construction Management (CM) generally provides oversight to the planning, design, and construction of a project, from its beginning to turnover. The purpose of Construction Management is to control a project’s budget, schedule, safety, quality, and delivery.

TBS takes these traditional CM Principles, pairs them with methodologies like IPD and AWP, and combines them with technology to provide a well-rounded training and mentoring program for the project stakeholders.

Flexibility and mobility are the key to success when it comes to training your Team. With today’s need for remote access for much of stakeholder training, TBS can provide access to online safety courses from industry-leading training providers.
