MDC Systems® brings a special perspective to Project Management and Construction Consulting, whether in one area of consulting, or total project/program management oversight serving as the Owner’s Representative.
Our perspective comes from our considerable experience analyzing and resolving construction project disputes for a wide range of projects and in numerous locations. Our experience in analyzing and evaluating ‘problem projects’ gives our team at MDC Systems® a keen insight into the areas where projects go wrong. We use that insight and experience in recognizing the telltale signs of trouble and steer projects clear of problems long before they loom on the immediate horizon.
Employing the tools described in our Front End Planning, such as cash flow modeling, risk assessment and analyses and project benchmarking, along with contract and scope reviews and master schedule development, MDC Systems® leverages our collective experience on multiple projects throughout the world in a predictive manner to optimize your program or project’s execution.
