DDS recognise the importance of civil and infrastructure projects and have assisted both private and government organisations with the upfront tendering, estimating and programming of these projects. To ensure we can provide market leading services, we have recently strengthened our internal civil engineering capability, allowing us to not only plan and schedule based on client requirements, but to estimate, develop and lead the entire programming effort on all current and future projects.

Some recent civil projects:

- Utilising our civil engineering expertise to develop a detailed program based on civil drawings, maps, site visits
- Estimating durations, quantities, productivity rates, engineering and construction methods
- Develop project WBS

Open Corporation:
- Gap analysis and realisation
- WBS Development
- Implemented scheduling software
- Development of  Project Schedules
- Dashboard Report (Including SPI, CPI, Variance, Milestone Slippage)

John Beever:
- Developed tender programs based on drawings and scope documents, estimated durations, resources, quantities
- Worked with the construction team to identify logic, constraints and build a critical path schedule
- Successfully built multiple fully resourced, detailed programs in limited time to meet client requirements
- Developed several tender schedules working with subcontractors and estimators to produce a tender program to the client

Recent John Beever projects include:

Origin Energy OGP SMP Project:
- Develop schedule in Primavera
- Resource Level schedule and produce histograms

Baryulah LLP Compression Project:
- Produce resourced schedule
- Provide sequencing and estimated durations based on working drawings

SPC Tomato Plant Utilities:
- Develop schedule to fit into client master program
- Produce manhour reports

Origin Energy OGP Civil Works Program:

- Develop fully resourced schedule
- Assistance in EOT claims and analysis of baseline schedule
- Progressing schedule, liaison with on site project team
- Producing S Curves and manhour / cost reports

Port Pirie Transformation Project:
- Produced detailed tender schedule in Primavera
- Resource schedule based on estimates
- Review construction drawings for activity and work sequencing
- Produce histograms

Project Bunge (Silo and Civil works program):
- Develop project schedule
- Resource level
- Produce manpower histograms

Cargill Grain Project (Project Pearl):
- Produce detailed Tender program in Primavera
- Liaise with project team to develop constructability
- Work with chief estimator to ensure durations and manhours were detailed and correct
- Produce histograms

We also use our experience to assist the delivery of projects by ensuring the required tools and systems are in place to do so.  The strategy we have formed is lean and effective.
