PLANNING MANAGER'S INVOLVEMENT
Planning manager supported the Wates project management team in producing independent progress reports, and weekly progress droplines to monitor the progress of each work area.
Our planner worked with the project manager to ensure the project programme was managed against the contract. Target programmes were set and monitored with the buy in of the supply chain and section managers. In addition to the programme updates planning manager assisted the team in producing clear logistics and phasing diagram’s to ensure the school teaching operations could be maintained in a safe manor. Planning Manager also assisted in producing items such as the scaffold schedules so Wates could gain accurate quotations from the supply chain.
Wates Project Manager Alan Wight said: "I have worked with planning manager over the years and it is reassuring to know we can call on the support of experienced planners who offer a fresh pair of eyes on my projects and whom I can trust to produce realistic logic linked programmes and sound alarm bells when a section of works is delayed."
