How much will design cost?
Joined an existing Project Finance team in the middle of a large Process Equipment installation project ($200 + million). The assignment was to forecast the final cost of the Design. Difficult and complex contracting relationships had evolved thereby making true costs less than transparent and difficult to forecast. A perfect example of where an outside resource could be deployed to tackle a particular problem while not distracting the already heavily committed Project Team.
Led a team performing analysis and comparison of multi-billion dollar bids against previously prepared Estimate. Supported Procurement in their clarifications meetings with preferred bidder. Prepared different reports for different levels of management review and made the ‘report-outs’ personally.
