Creating the blueprint for success

Construction projects involve a great deal of time and capital, so effective construction management skills are required if the projects are to be completed within the established timeline to meet cost limitations and quality requirements. In the building and construction industry, staying cost-effective and competitive means that companies must have core competencies for coordinating the job sites, controlling costs, and managing risk at their construction sites.

Main Services

PMC Silesia provides multi-disciplinary construction management consulting services for construction and engineering projects around the globe. PMC services owners, contractors, government agencies, architects, engineers, financial institutions, and insurance companies in all industries regardless of size, scope, or complexity from concept through project closeout.


Project Management

PMC Silesia has developed a construction project management approach based on our origin as a claims consulting firm. This background gives us a unique and in-depth understanding of what can go wrong on a project. We use this knowledge to identify potential trouble spots before they develop into problems, and to recommend or initiate preventive action through strategic planning and controls.


Dispute Resolution

PMC Silesia provides a roadmap to understanding the technical nature of the dispute, prepares findings based on forensic analyses, and delivers expert testimony that clients and triers of fact can rely on to make informed decisions. This phased approach provides the client with crucial feedback early and throughout the process to inform its decision-making and strategy in resolving the dispute.


Construction Advisory

PMC Silesia provides a collaborative, partnership approach to its construction advisory services to ensure our recommendations are right for your organization. We work to understand your business, your objectives, and your culture so we can provide support that can be integrated into your operations to improve performance at all levels of the organization.


Project Control

Construction project controls consultants play a critical role in the successful execution and delivery of complex projects. As experts in project controls, our responsibilities begin from the early design stage and run through the successful completion of a project—from establishing the project budget and timeline to accurately monitoring and forecasting progress for both in order to manage risks from the start of the project to the finish. PMC Silesia offers a unique and proactive-forensic business model. We have developed our project controls approach based on extensive planning phase claims and dispute resolution experience, which gives us a unique and in-depth understanding of what can go wrong on a project. PMC Silesia uses this knowledge to identify potential trouble spots on a project before they develop into problems and to recommend or initiate preventive action through strategic planning and controls. PMC Silesia’s project controls experts bring a comprehensive suite of skills and extensive field experience to the job site. After establishing an accurate project budget and schedule, we help project teams determine the key areas of risk by tracking both time and cost compared against contractual expectations, scope, performance criteria, and milestones. By evaluating the productivity of the project through these key elements, we can better forecast the scope of work and key activity to ensure on-time and on-budget completion. These controls can be applied to all phases of a project from preconstruction to closeout.

Scope of Work


Construction Oversight

Construction oversight requirements vary depending on the project’s degree of complexity, its importance, political sensitivities, citizen interest, and contractor competence. From feasibility studies to developing and maintaining project schedules and budgets to construction contracts and change order administration, PMC Silesia provides the necessary level of attention and oversight for your project.


Constructability Review

PMC Silesia assesses the accuracy and completeness of construction plans and specifications and validates schedules and budgets. An effective constructability review looks for document completeness and inconsistencies, potential liability, coordination issues, and missed details. The review also identifies and eliminates ambiguities and contract language that contribute to unnecessary construction change orders, disputes, and adversarial relationships between the contractor, owner, designer, and project stakeholders.


Contract Administration

Contract and procurement management are core services PMC Silesia provides at the onset of a project or program especially with large experience with FIDIC Contracts forms (Yellow, Red and Silver Books). Our experience includes upgrading contract documents, preparing requests for proposals, and participating in or facilitating contractor bid review and selection. We also assist in developing a contract/procurement strategy designed to capitalize on market condition advantages without compromising the overall project timetable. When these efforts occur during the early phases of a project’s life cycle, Spire’s input can add tremendous value to the project.


Construction Scheduling

PMC Silesia keeps projects on schedule. We are experts in developing, evaluating, and maintaining design and construction schedules. Using Project 4D™, ConstructSim™, Primavera™, Claim Digger™, Microsoft Project™, and Finest Hour™for planning projects, we develop schedules during design to determine the initial schedule, project duration, and critical project activities. We create schedules to monitor activities during construction, analyze changed conditions and delays, and evaluate their impact on project completion. Post-construction, we use schedules to facilitate project closeout and analyze claims that arise.


Cost Estimating

From planning estimates and detailed design estimates to independent cost estimates and change order reviews during construction and closeout, PMC Silesia specializes in construction cost estimating. In addition to traditional estimating methods, PMC Silesia has led the industry in using state-of-the-art techniques to assess contingency by evaluating the uncertainty level in each portion of the estimate. Spire’s Consultants can also perform more detailed estimates that provide owners with a range of costs and the probability of remaining below a particular cost ceiling.


Change Order Management

Resolving change order situations early minimizes costs and avoids schedule disruptions. PMC Silesia develops and manages the change order process for owners, contractors, and subcontractors on multimillion-dollar projects, including labor rate compliance, change order metrics, and contract entitlement.
