As Project Managers in the construction industry, we at Covered Area, undertake a planned series of activities and design them in synchronization with our customer’s requirements, whenever we go on board with new projects. This includes overall planning, coordination, monitoring and controlling of a project from inception to completion in order to produce a functionally and financially viable project that will be completed on time, within authorized cost and to the required quality standards.
Our Project Management services are classified into three typical stages.
From the moment we take up a project, we chalk out a roadmap for our customers, taking ownership of the entire project, right from its budding stages. This process includes advising, monitoring and reporting on Pre-Construction activities of the project. Covered Area initiates the project by preparing a project execution plan that will set out the cost, time and quality objectives of the project, and the systems and procedures that will be used to achieve these objectives. The overall objective of the Pre-Construction process is to improve efficiency, reduce cost and time (by providing clear briefings, pre-planning meetings, workshops and resource allocation) and value maximization (by managing the supply chain, making timely decisions and operating in a pro-active and robust environment).

Construction & Installation Management
Covered Area starts the construction management process during the preliminary design stage when project planning milestones are established, construction concepts are developed, and the overall plan is prepared.
As a part of Project Management Consultancy, during the construction period, Covered Area will prepare a construction management strategy, procedure and manual and undertake ‘Construction Process Management’ which is essentially a strategy of overseeing the General contractor’s/ Sub -contractor’s supervision team at site, monitoring their established processes and doing periodic quality checks at random.
As Client Representative, Covered Area will represent your best interest in interactions with contractors, major sub contractors and all other consultants.
During final design, construction management tasks include constructability and cost-saving reviews, consequent design changes and environmental compliance. The construction phase involves implementation of the construction plan by the Project Construction Manager including day-to-day communications and coordination with contractors.
