Project Management at KMS speaks to how we “bridge” the connections to our client’s vision. This part of our process would cover things like:
Our project managers will maintain a weekly status report document constantly, jotting in updates and stats as they happen in real-time. You will most likely have a day of the week in mind for when to send it; however, the magic of a weekly report should be that it can be ready within the hour if a client requests it.
Impeccable schedule management and the ability to adapt quickly are vital when handling complex programs and projects.
We keep budgets on track and costs contained along the way so our clients don’t overspend.
We tailor our site visit frequency to our clients’ wishes to provide the desired level of oversight on projects.
Our web-based management system makes every aspect of project management more efficient and promotes open communication between us and our clients.
Construction Management is where the rubber meets the road in the field. KMS would provide boots on the ground for our clients to act as their eyes and ears to ensure a project is delivered in accordance with the client’s vision and project design.
Furniture, Fixtures, & Equipment coordination is an important part of any successful project. KMS coordinates with the client’s third party vendors such as telecom, furniture, and equipment to ensure these parts of the project are properly scheduled in the overall project delivery.
FF&E is a complex and time-consuming process that can easily result in disruption and costly downtime. We organize and oversee all aspects of this phase to ensure a smooth transition with minimum impact to your operations.
Most major projects have a move component associated with it. The move could involve the relocation or consolidation of a particular department or organization. During the move phase, KMS would coordinate with the client’s people, moving company, and furniture vendor to develop and manage the actual moving of the client’s staff. This process includes:
We ensure the right equipment makes it to the right office to create a smooth transition into any new space.
We coordinate staff and equipment relocation on behalf of our clients by utilizing standardized processes and technology to develop “from/to” documentation and phasing plans to ensure that our client’s staff members and equipment effectively get to their final destination.
We plan the layout and configuration of your new office space to maximize company efficiencies
