Construction Management

Maven has completed a wide portfolio in the planning and execution of large-scale capital infrastructure projects across Canada. Our construction project management services ensure that projects are completed on time, with quality results and are compliant to regional, client-specific and environmental regulations. The project professionals at Maven Consulting excel in integration with client teams. We coordinate large groups of contractors to ensure seamless and efficient delivery. Whether you’re executing a small project or a major infrastructure improvement, our project leaders will add value at every step.

Our Approach

At Maven Consulting, we work with clients and stakeholders to minimize costs, increase return on investment and improve sustainability. To ensure the desired level of quality, Maven employs a process to plan, monitor and control performance of work activities. We adhere to quality standards for professional service and model the program on ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems and Continuous Improvement Program.

Our experienced construction project management team offers a hands-on approach to managing the delivery of projects from issuing construction packages, day-to-day site management through to quality inspection and commissioning. As representatives of the owner, we collaborate with project managers to oversee construction costs, completion schedule, and work quality in order to maximise the client’s investment. Our goal is to provide outstanding professional support to our clients in their efforts to better manage projects, reduce costs, and avoid job delays and potential claims.

We are able to solve most problems throughout a project with risk identification and communication. Early identification and consistent re-evaluation of risks followed by the engagement of the issue with the correct stakeholder with as much lead time as possible will de-risk the project and minimize the number of budget and schedule variances. Additionally, we provide regular monitoring and reporting of progress metrics for the desired level of visibility and oversight.
