Project Controls

SRF’s Project Controls Group is well versed in project delivery and successful control processes, bringing experience from national and Midwestern firms.

We have proven experience in large-scale design-build delivery and CMGCs, complex infrastructure and transportation projects, water and wastewater projects, transit, vertical construction, and utility projects. Our team right-sizes efforts to support the needs of project owners. Drawing on our diverse backgrounds, we have the ability to tackle almost any project. Our experience includes utilities, drainage, bridges, heavy civil, complex interchanges, accelerated bridge construction, light rail, streetcar, commuter and heavy rail, bus rapid transit, paving, vertical construction, communications, and electrical.

Cost, schedule, and scope are key elements of delivering a project, large or small. These elements can be effectively managed through cost estimating, schedule management, system management, and risk management. SRF uses project control systems to provide stakeholders with reliable, accurate information that can be used to make decisions necessary to successfully deliver infrastructure projects.

Cost Estimating

SRF creates cost estimates at any phase in the design process and reviews and validates estimates prepared by others. Our estimators have extensive contractor experience and approach cost estimating from a contractor perspective. SRF’s cost estimates are derived using local experience with contractors, labor agreements, materials pricing, equipment rental rates, indirect costs, contractor risk/profit, and market conditions. We provide support beyond estimate development through risk assessment, estimate reconciliation, bid analysis, life-cycle costing, and the negotiation of contract change orders.

Schedule Management

SRF’s schedulers develop planning-level schedules to identify interfaces and milestones and establish contract time and project specifications. We review and analyze baseline and recovery schedules and perform time impact analysis. The review of cost-loaded schedules aids in establishing program- and project-level cash flow forecasts.
