Weir-Jones Group expertise also extends into the project management field. Preliminary definition of the client’s project, scheduling and budgetary requirements and determination of relevant site conditions are just a few examples in this section. Critical operating parameters are identified and appropriate monitoring equipment and procedures are established in order to define the required performance of the monitoring system. Design and management of the testing and monitoring programmes, either on-site or in the laboratory is an inseparable fragment of projects execution. Where necessary, personnel undertake the design and fabrication of specialized equipment and systems. These are installed, commissioned and evaluated for performance against specifications established by the owner, by regulatory authorities or certifying agencies. The progress of the project is monitored to identify potential delays. Project management software is also used to maintain tight control of budgets and completion dates.
Ongoing project services are offered for systems operation, data collection and data processing, analysis and interpretation. This often includes preparation of documentation and presentations for use by the client when dealing with regulatory agencies or certifying authorities. In some cases Weir-Jones liaises with other consultants, government approval bodies, major contractors, subcontractors and client’s representatives to achieve perfect results.
