Our project execution capability ranges from pre-feasibility studies through to commissioning and project handover. Our structured approach and project management tools have enabled us to complete projects effectively and efficiently to meet and in most cases exceed the client’s Project requirements. This ensures that the client achieves production targets in the shortest time and in the most cost-effective means. We manage these projects through all the different project life cycle phases taking special note of the PMBOK process groups and how they align with our activities as an EPCM.
