Management and Oversight

Sound project management can be the difference between success and failure.  At Barrier Sciences Group, the senior team comprises professional consultants, ideally positioned to provide project management and oversight that’s viable and effective.  The BSG team works on the basis of three fundamentals:  to ensure appropriate implementation of actions and activities performed by others; to assume reporting responsibilities for the work that is in progress; and to monitor actions and activities with a view to successful completion.

Barrier Sciences Group offers an itemized menu of construction and project management services during the implementation phase of a project.  Each service module is expressly customized to suit the size and scope of the client’s project, while accommodating specific client needs.  To ensure a level of flexibility for individual clients, BSG management services can be combined with the BSG Inspection Service, or can be selectively provided on a need basis.  Whatever the case, management and oversight is always client-centered.

Project management

The BSG team plans, organizes, and controls project resources and implementation.  Efforts are focused on accomplishing pre-defined project goals and objectives.

Contract management

Contract management entails the administration and supervision of contracts with various vendors, dealers and trades.  The BSG team also engages in contract negotiations.

Coordination of trades

BSG provides ongoing oversight of building and construction trades (with a focus on deep energy retrofit) and manages information communication between participants.

Meeting management

The BSG team plans and manages meetings to ensure maximum performance; to address project challenges - to manage strategic planning - and to realize project objectives.

Change Order control

For whatever reason - design changes, site conditions, or owner-initiated adjustments - the BSG team is poised to handle change orders, including any impact on costs and budget.

Cost and budget control

BSG functions as an outside cost and budget consultant, monitoring current and ongoing project costs - scrutinizing change orders - and validating contractor’s pricing.

Work progress reporting

Progress reporting is key to project success.  The BSG team assumes regular reporting, with a view to keeping the project on track.  Effective communication is an integral component.
