Helping a wind farm installation contractor deliver their biggest project to date
Dealing with a rocky start
The client was experiencing significant delays caused by rocky ground conditions and access issues, which were making trenching much slower than planned. This meant a commercial risk for our client as key contract dates kept being impacted.
Getting the priorities straight
We ensured that the numerous delays on the schedule were mitigated by moving resources to alternative work fronts. We also ensured delays and additional costs incurred were captured and recovered.
We developed a detailed construction plan that was NEC compliant and implemented best practice planning and delivery processes.
We taught the site team how to work on a weekly plan and keep focused on priority tasks.
Successfully managing change
We proactively managed delay changes to ensure the contractor was able to recover their costs and protect against damages. We were able to secure several months of time due to access delays and ground conditions.
The project became plan-driven, rather than delivered in an ad-hoc day-to-day manner, which contributed to being delivered ahead of schedule and on budget.
