Multinational construction consultancy firm Linesight today launched its Scheduling Center of Excellence (CoE) with a team of subject matter experts based in Dallas. Integrated and reliable scheduling expertise is a specialized management skill that drives the effective use of funds and provides project execution roadmaps that can help determine if a construction project’s parameters are realistic and achievable. Linesight’s highly experienced schedulers enable clients to make informed decisions faster by providing them with an integrated approach for managing tradeoffs between cost, schedule, risk management, and project scope. This Center of Excellence is the first of its kind in the industry enabling Linesight’s clients to have access to best practice project reporting and confidence in the predictability of project outcomes.
“In support of our CoE we have hired some experienced talent to lead our scheduling operations. Robert Farrell joins us as Director of Risk and Scheduling following 11 years consulting in this area and having worked for and on behalf of the world’s largest oil and energy service companies. Richard Colmer, who joined our scheduling team two years ago, will be our Dallas Center of Excellence Scheduling Lead and brings over 30 years’ extensive experience from life sciences and construction consultancy multinationals. I am confident that together, Richard, Robert and our extended global scheduling team will have a significant impact on project outcomes for our growing client base,” said Tom Dempsey, Chief Operations Officer.
“With the formation of the industry’s first Center of Excellence, Linesight is strategically positioned at the very forefront of Project Scheduling capability; blending industry recognized working best-practice, sectoral experience and dynamic software systems. Linesight’s clients benefit from access to subject matter experts, a centralized support function and an agile, dynamic service to mitigate project risk and capitalize on project dynamics and opportunities. Linesight’s periodic health checks also establish and uphold schedule quality so that clients can be secure in their decision-making processes, which underpins early action and enables any required pivots for change,” commented Robert Farrell.
“The art of scheduling is a critical element in analyzing how change affects a project and serves as an early warning system,” says Richard Colmer, Center of Excellence Scheduling Lead. “Our flexible and agile scheduling resource pool can provide trusted, results-driven advice, early strategic counsel, industry benchmarking and most importantly centralized management and control of project data. Schedule variances are almost always followed by cost variances and through our Center of Excellence we can identify these variances early, highlight risks and advise on remedial action and implications to our clients. Our experience and deep domain knowledge in multiple industry sectors, including Data Centers, Life Sciences, Commercial Real Estate, Residential, High-Tech Industrial amongst others, means that we can bring proven trusted advice and recommendations to our clients to help projects run more smoothly.”
