The project programme is an essential tool in the Workplace Optimisation process; controlling and monitoring progress through all stages of the project.
A perfectly executed project achieved to poor time-frames can often cost an organisation as much in revenue as a poorly executed design solution. The success of the Optimisation process can often hinge on the pivotal transition from design intent to physical execution on site.
We have all experienced the frustration and disappointment of suppliers who fail to achieve crucial deadlines and the execution of a fit-out project is no different, however the financial impact will invariably be considerably greater.
Controlling a process with so many different component parts can seem impossible, yet with strict programme adherence the delivery of an optimised workplace can be an exhilarating one.
The project programme should:
Provide an outline to the project process to provide an effective schedule
Identify the key dates and activities to focus attention on critical dates that are required to be achieved
Provide collaboration and communication between parties to the project in order to obtain necessary decisions from external parties to specified deadlines
Identify Client decision making activities to highlight their involvement and focus attention on technical design development decisions required before commencement of the physical works
Control the process to allow sufficient time for consultation and decision making
Ensure the integration of the building search, lease time-lines and approvals with the project development
Focus on what needs to be achieved prior to contract signature
Illustrate the option to fast-track the project delivery and identify potential benefits such as reduced preliminaries, early occupation or taking advantage of rent-free periods
