Project delivery services

Project delivery & controls

Tacmin Madini offers the following project delivery systems to the Open-pit Mining Industry:

●  Construction Management as Agent

●  Construction Management at Risk

●  Design, build and Operate

Construction Manager as Agent

Agency implies that the Construction Manager (CM) is acting on behalf of the Owner and has been empowered to act for the Owner within the delegated or apparent authority that the Owner conveys to it. The Owner is relying upon the professional expertise and experience of its CM as Agent to act decisively on the Owner’s behalf to minimize risks of delays, cost overruns, or quality problems. Proactively applying the requisite tools, skills and experience of a seasoned Construction Management professional, is the Owner’s expectation.

Construction Manager at Risk

Construction Manager (CM) at Risk is a type of project delivery method where the CM is also the Constructor. The CM will have a direct contractual relationship with the Owner, and in the case of Tacmin, the Owner has the option to incorporate Tacmin’s Design Expertise to provide engineering services for the project. During the construction phase, the CM will either self-perform the work, sub-contract the work to various specialty firms or will do a combination of both.

Design, build & operate

Sometimes, engineering and construction firms, with the capability of performing all the engineering, design, procurement and construction themselves, are engaged to execute the total scope of the project. In other cases, teams are formed consisting of an engineering firm and a construction firm joining together (joint venturing) to deliver a “seamless” organization that is responsible to the Owner for the project’s total execution. The use of a single entity to execute projects in this manner has become more commonly known as “fast track design-build.”

The generic term “Project Delivery System” relates to the particular contractual arrangements for the approach implemented and utilized to accomplish the goals of a given project including: organization; risk allocation; assignment of responsibilities; pricing and payment obligations.

For any given project there is likely to be more than one Project Delivery approach that would be appropriate, and there may be one approach that is best suited, depending on the Owner’s requirements and capabilities.
