Scope, Schedule and Costs Managed

There is an art to effective project management. It’s not a matter of simply following industry recognized guidelines and adhering to best practices. It’s the skillful application of that knowledge, drawing on K2’s wealth of experience gained from our 30-year history working on every imaginable project type across public and private sectors around the world. Building on our long-standing relationships with general contractors, sub-contractors, owners, project management offices (PMOs), and design professionals, working with K2 ensures that cost, scope and schedule are properly managed for the best possible outcome, every time.

Masters of the Master Schedule

K2 develops Integrated Master Schedules for complex, multi-phase, multi-year development and campus programs whose scope includes hundreds of individual projects, including buildings, infrastructure, transportation systems, and public spaces. Our approach ensures that the plan is executed according to a logically-driven, programmatic schedule; reducing overall costs, mitigating risk, and creating transparency. We shepherd this process through the program lifecycle concept to close-out.

Putting the Controls in Your Hands—from Concept to Closeout

Successful construction projects depend on well-established project controls to provide management with the ability to make informed decisions on a timely basis. K2 is skilled at the capture and analytical review of project time and cost data per industry best practices, enabling our clients to forecast and constructively influence the outcomes of their project or program on in real time. Offering a full spectrum of services—from concept to closeout, our Construction Consultants and Project Control Services (PCS) professionals work alongside your project team to ensure seamless integration of our services and solutions.

Claims Management—Recognizing the Cost of Change

With You at Every Step

Construction projects have a lifecycle that runs from concept to program validation, master planning / scheduling, monitoring and evaluation to closeout. Our clients have engaged our consulting services when they have just the kernel of an idea, they have asked us to rescue projects, and are relied upon to provide forensic claims management and expert testimony. We have unparalleled expertise, making us the first call for so many of our repeat clients.

Building for Success

The likelihood of successful projects is directly related to the quality of the work performed up-front. Before a project can get off the ground, it is critical to progressively detail the time-phased execution plan coordinating with Owners, contractors, and stakeholders to carefully develop an achievable baseline plan. Once established, we monitor performance and update project forecasts for timely field management and executive decision making. We handle all of this to support successful project delivery for your peace of mind.
