Capital Project / Program Management

Our Unique Approach to Capital Program Management

Circadia consistently delivers successful major decarbonization initiatives. We take a comprehensive approach to fully understand our client’s needs and develop a detailed program to achieve a successful outcome. Our extensive experience managing complex projects supports implementation of best practice solutions and ensures resolution of complicated challenges.

Circadia engages with key stakeholders to grasp the project’s scope and goals. We strategically analyze construction logistics, tailor program schedules to meet client goals, and offer expert reviews and consulting on topics like geothermal planning, power purchase agreement (PPA) administration, master plan review, and climate action plan (CAP) assessment.

We manage the bidding process, collaborating with your business office to select the best-qualified and cost-effective partner. Our subject matter experts review proposals, assist with bid analysis, and ensure the project aligns with your goals. Our experienced Core Team coordinates with diverse design professionals, employing proven technologies to develop energy-efficient designs that meet project metrics and client standards. Circadia efficiently manages project documentation in a digital repository or client-preferred system.

Through an integrated design process, we facilitate the selection and oversight of a qualified construction team. As the owner’s representative, we meticulously review the contractor’s schedule and logistics plan to ensure alignment with the client’s requirements while minimizing disruptions to campus operations. Subsequently, our Program Manager presents the schedule and logistics plan to the client for approval and feedback.

Clear and frequent communication with all stakeholders is crucial for project success. Our team collaborates with design and construction teams to establish and manage a streamlined process for planning, approval, and communication of impacts.

A key responsibility is creating a comprehensive budget that encompasses all project aspects and effectively managing the program to stay within budget. Our project teams consistently meet to review and reconcile expenses against the program budget, demonstrating a proven track record of delivering projects on or below budget.

A detailed, achievable, and organized schedule is crucial for timely project delivery. Circadia recognizes the significance of schedule logic, construction activity phasing, and project tracking. Our certified PMI-SP schedulers, skilled in critical path methodology, use MS-Project and P6-Primavera to develop construction schedules, ensuring project adherence. Our scheduling services are integral to all client-managed programs and available as a standalone service for external construction trades partners.

We value strong client relationships.
