Exner understands that top project management aims to:

  • Maintain a good contractual relationship between all parties
  • Ensure the Principal is informed of issues as and when they occur
  • Ensure that each party receives fair treatment
  • Ensure that work gets carried out as safely and effectively as possible
  • Quick resolution of issues with minimal time and cost expense

By adhering to these principles, Exner ensures that the project is completed on time, on budget, to QA & environmental standards and strives for a harmonious & strong working relationship that is maintained between parties throughout the project.

Exner can undertake an external review of your project success; we can provide valuable information about whether performance targets are being achieved; if extra resources are required or if improvements can be made to the way the project is being managed. Sometimes it’s only a small issue that needs resolving to allow you to jump over the immediate hurdles to continue with the project.

Sometimes it’s only a small problem that needs to be resolved to get the project back on track. Our team has the ability to manage or simply ‘lend a hand’ to your projects when or if required.
