Project Controls

Project Controls plays an essential role in the success of any project as it controls two primary factors; Cost and Schedule in a project.
Synnov Group provide exceptional project controls services for all phases of Planning, Design and Construction of a Project. Our highly qualified and self-motivated personnel ensure that projects are completed with consistent quality, on-time and on-budget.

We offer following Project Controls services:

Cost Estimating

We provide comprehensive cost estimating services to help control costs from programmatic design to project completion. Our cost information is always based on current market data that accurately represents the scope, complexity and quality anticipated for each individual project.

In addition to the standard detailed cost estimates, we also provide:

  • Conceptual / master planning estimates
  • Rough order of magnitude (ROM)/ Budget Estimates
  • Feasibility study cost analysis
  • All Stages of Design Estimates (Concept, Schematic, Design Development, Construction Documents)
  • Life cycle costing
  • Renovation/Repair Estimates
  • Bid evaluation
  • Claims evaluation
  • Change order work (Estimates, Review, and Resolution)


We provide pre-construction, construction, and post-construction scheduling services including:

  • Design-phase, preliminary schedule development
  • Bid, Baseline, Project, Master Program and Close-Out schedules that meet the contract specifications.
  • Cost-loaded schedules
  • Resource-loaded schedules
  • Schedule review and progress assessment

Document Control

All drawings, documents, correspondence, reports and invoices produced or received will be identified according to an established index.

Each document is then date-stamped and logged. Some of the documents the control system will store and protect include:

  • RFI logs
  • Change Order logs
  • Document (general contract correspondence) log
  • Directive or bulletin log
  • Inspector daily diary
  • Inspection reports
  • Meeting minutes
  • Noncompliance notice log
  • Progress payment (verification)
  • Punchlist

Risk Assessment

Synnov Group provides risk assessment to enable our clients to achieve an even greater level of confidence and reduce uncertainty of cost estimates and CPM schedules. We identify the clients’ risk exposure, recommend adequate contingency requirements, and prepare a risk response plan. The risk assessment efforts include a risk registry that assists client in pursuing a risk management effort during design, construction and operational life cycle.

Value Engineering

Value engineering is the primary means by which the most economical means and methods for construction are determined and provides a more thorough cost analysis for the major construction components on a project. Value engineering does not sacrifice the quality of construction, rather, it is an evaluation of the materials and methods of construction over their useful life.

We provide value engineering services including:

  • Evaluation of cost and constructability factors associated with the major construction components.
  • Provide information to be utilized to make critical decisions on the life cycle cost of the project systems.
