We’ll give you insight and clarity on your project’s status, the progress of the contractor, and detailed tracking of delays early on – with help adjudicating delay claims if needed.

Unfortunately, there are no accepted standards being implemented in South Africa for setting up a proper and well-developed schedule. As a result, many contractors prepare poor and sub-par schedules which cannot be used as dynamic tools. Many established contractors on the other hand, compile overly-complex schedules using advanced software. These contractors own all the progress, reporting and delay information on your project. The project team is habitually kept in the dark or must blindly rely on the information being fed to them. This can have disastrous consequences on your project as the team may lose out on precious opportunities for early problem identification or worse, face high value delay claims from a sophisticated contractor without any recourse or ability to test it objectively.
