Project Controls & Governance
CPMS Project Controls and Governance offering goes beyond establishing and operating systems and processes to control project information. Our skill is in how our specialist team brings information to life for the benefit of all stakeholders.
CPMS’ approach to successful project delivery is through a single source of reliable and controlled information to facilitate informed and efficient decision making.
- Schedule creation/ Railway possession scheduling
- Oracle Primavera certified staff
- Reporting architecture design and implementation
- Document Management
- Project Governance arrangements
- Establishing governance process
- Working on optimising projects through governance systems like Network Rail’s GRIP / Treasury’s Green Book
We have experts in planning, reporting, cost engineering, estimating and risk management.
Our planning experts have not only pioneered 4D planning – the integration of design modelling with Oracle Primavera © sequencing – but continuously work hard to maximise the integrity of possession programmes for our clients where accurate programmes, updates and forecasts, are essential to make sure the railway reopens on time.
The CPMS team have a wide range of experience in differing sectors from nuclear, oil and gas, water, defence, and healthcare. We always seek to import best practice and find the right solution for our clients.
We recognise that to deliver success we need simple clear and easy to understand reports that are used and embraced by project teams.
We always seek to implement the best system for our clients – embracing new solutions like Tableau © or Microsoft Power BI © – but also recognising that smaller scale projects and teams simply need a traffic light report or whiteboard update. We listen to our clients to make sure they have the right tools to deliver success.
We support clients navigating and controlling imbedded governance processes like Network Rail’s Guide to Railway Investment Projects (GRIP) and provide advice on creating and embedding governance processes for new teams.
Are you a people person able to draw insight from each conversation? A project controls role at CPMS is different to anywhere else – we need passionate individuals that can interact with other people, understand complex problems, analyse detail and then replay that information simply and succinctly.
We will teach you the technical skills you need in planning, risk management, cost engineering, estimating or governance but you will need that inherent people skill to join our successful team.
