The Independent Business Group (IBG) had recognised the need of customers to provide full Project Management Consultant (PMC) services in projects. IBG is currently providing services supporting clients from project inception to completion.
Throughout the project life cycle, the principles of pro-activeness and creating the win-win situation is necessary, keeping in mind the customer / client’s requirements. Use of Project Management Consultancy (PMC) offers one of the effective management solutions to increase and improve the efficiency and outcome of a project.
A Project Management Consultant is responsible for scheduling and managing each project. The PMC manager needs to decide the budget, assign Employees or subcontractors and their duties to complete the job whilst overseeing the safety of workers and their rights.”
By involving IBG cost benefit team in the early idea or design phase of a project we also can contribute to secure funding to projects. We have built relations with export credit institutes; credits guarantee boards and financial institutes and can support in the process of facilitating funding. Three key stages of financing with gateways to ensure capital is protected and ring-fenced throughout the project for development, mezzanine and implementation funding.
As a project management consultant (PMC), we take the full responsibility for an infrastructure project involving multiple procurement related activities. This is not only a service for larger infrastructure projects, but we also offer this service for smaller projects where there are complex interface issues involving multiple systems (e.g. design and build of Airport Operations Control Centre, Visual Control Rooms, Digital Towers, terminal projects, airside systems modernisation etc.).
Instead of a conventional approach of simply relying on our design and implementation oversight services, our PMC role additionally takes responsibility for the subcontracting, delivery and transition to service of the solutions. This design and build approach substantially reduce our customers dependency on multiple procurements may it be consultants or technology partners. Through this approach we always have full control of the project critical path and all associated dependencies and ensure the clients satisfaction.
A typical PMC project is characterised by us establishing a local project management office (PMO) with staff dedicated to managing the design, procurement and implementation of services and systems to reach specific project objectives. In our turnkey delivery solutions this is complemented by our team of technical specialists and expert consultants during supported by innovative analytical tools from our partners.
In summary we provide a ‘one stop shop’ for customers by conducting the design, subcontracting or delivery of both services and systems and implementation including operational readiness and transition (ORAT) services before handover.
