There are many options and decisions that precede the execution of any project. Deciding on program components, asset types, facility systems, site location or acquisition, financing options, and organization needs are just some of the elements of initiating a project. We can lead a rigorous evaluation of development options to provide a framework for early decision making.
A strategic planning approach will aid in the definition of specific projects, analysis of various contracting strategies, and the schedule and financial implications of various options. When exiting a strategic planning phase, the owner is in a position to have a validated development program and scope, a simulation of a project approach, an understanding of the cost and schedule, and be positioned to enter advanced planning and initiation of the project.
