SYSTRA engineering project controls specialists help project managers to deliver major infrastructure schemes on time, on budget and in the most resource- and cost-efficient way.

Planning for successful engineering project delivery

Engineering projects in the transport, energy, environmental and urban development sectors are complex undertakings, involving designers, contractors and engineers across multiple disciplines. Project Controls is an essential element in the successful delivery of any major infrastructure programme, setting out how the project can be completed within a given timeframe and budget, with designated resources.

Project Controls specialist are required to set measurable objectives, identify the project deliverables, schedule every stage of the project and plan key tasks. They also provide key reporting on all aspects of project performance.

As a full-service design and engineering consultancy, SYSTRA has the integrated expertise to deliver end-to-end project planning and controls services for engineering projects in multiple sectors.

Discover how SYSTRA can deliver reassurance that costs, sustainability, safety, and risks will be carefully controlled through all project delivery phases.

At SYSTRA, we use proven methodologies and tools to create integrated delivery plans setting out the schedule, deliverables and costs for major engineering projects.

Multi-disciplinary collaboration in project planning

Our specialists provide project planning and controls support for every stage of engineering schemes, from initial concepts through to construction. Our planners can cover all stages of project design in-house, thanks to close collaboration with our own design and engineering teams. We can also develop and integrate control systems for our clients, whether or not our staff are embedded within the client team.

We use tried and tested approaches and tools to provide insights into all aspects of delivery performance. We can scale and tailor solutions to provide key performance indicators for various performance centres within the client’s project or company.

Proven project planning tools and methods

Our teams apply relevant methodologies to each engineering project. We use earned value management (EVM) methods to integrate schedules, scope and costs to measure project performance. EVM helps project managers to predict the future and adjust project plans accordingly. We also use the critical path method to determine the key tasks necessary for project completion, helping to identify scheduling flexibilities and set out when critical tasks must be completed to achieve the project deadline.

We use recognised project portfolio management software, such as Primavera P6, to support scheduling, risk analysis, opportunity management, resource management and collaboration.

On-time, on budget engineering project delivery

The work of our engineering project planning and controls specialists gives clients the guidance they need to manage projects in the most cost and resource efficient ways. Our project plans integrate engineering logic with time, cost and resource data in order to provide robust forecasts. These forecasts are then closely monitored for progress to support clients with the successful delivery of engineering projects.
