Our firm assists owners with managing capital improvement projects (whether they are a single facility or part of a larger program) by providing experienced professionals, proven procedures and creative solutions. Project and program management services are sometimes given different names (CM as Agent, for instance), but at Broaddus & Associates it always means providing the leadership and services necessary to accomplish the owner's goals.
Research shows that properly engaging a project manager is the most significant factor that can influence the success of a project. An experienced project manager understands the importance of consistent communication with stakeholders, adherence to schedules and budgets, the ability to identify value on a project, and how the project fits into the overall mission of the owner. Our professional staff averages 25 years of industry experience, and has often previously served on the internal staff of owners. And because every project is unique, our firm has tailored our services to meet the needs of each of our owners. We consider this to be an important reason for our growth.
When managing a program or project, Broaddus & Associates regularly applies a 14-step owner-oriented project management process. With this process, we are able to guide our clients to define needs, set realistic budgets and schedules, establish design criteria, procure designers and contractors, and ultimately execute the plan. This process also utilizes our research-proven "Best Practices": these techniques, which include constructability reviews, Project Definition Rating Index reviews, schedule optimization and change management, all combine to offer measureable value to owner's projects.
The ultimate goal is delivering a project within budget, on schedule and with a level of quality that exceeds customer expectations. At Broaddus & Associates, we like to start early, accept responsibility and earn the owner's trust.
