Long Description:
The availability of labour and the provision of specialised equipment for the transportation and installation of projects are just two important challenges critical tosuccessful project execution. With some scarcity issues already being felt, the anticipated boom in projects being commissioned in 2012, designed in 2013 and executed in 2014 will increase competition, drive costs and create severe shortages.
Within this framework Project Leaders face difficult decisions over how to optimize allocation of man-hours both on and off-site, how to ensure lean on-site operations and how to deliver major projects on time and on budget. Defining your strategy for execution, and planning now to secure the assets you need, is not only essential for successful project completion but also has a significant impact on design, timing and cost.
