From quality assurance, budgeting, scheduling, and procurement, Cogent offers a full scope of project management services to coordinate, monitor and control all aspects of your project. Our project team consists of certified and experienced project managers who are committed to project and client success. We utilize proven project execution tools and practices to ensure effective project delivery. Cogent works closely with the client and liaises with all stakeholders to evaluate technology options and define the specific engineering, equipment and construction requirements.
> Collaboration Tools for Teams
Cogent understands the importance of capturing information, sharing knowledge and harvesting intellectual property within work teams. Cogents solutions provide personnel with fast access to track and trace issues, share information/best practices and collaborate across workgroups to manage and improve performance.
> Project Plans
Leveraging project management best practices, Cogent will work with you to develop a comprehensive project plan encompassing the project scope, risks, budget, milestone of deliverables, management and cost control, master schedule, communication, and change management.
> Schedule Management
Cogent’s project management team has extensive experience in the creation and maintenance of multi-level project schedules, including sequencing, dependencies, work effort and resourcing. Our schedule management services include managing and coordinating deliverables, activities, communications and milestones.
> Design Oversight
As projects develop in complexity, the ability to communicate designs and changes between stakeholders becomes increasingly important. Cogent provides project design coordination between structural, civil and electrical engineers and other design consultants. We will help you determine which engineering and design services are required from a project’s start to finish. Our input can streamline the communication process and provide you with additional cost savings, quality assurance and optimized designs to assure a successful project.
> Procurement Management
Cogent offers expertise to identify and obtain the right technology, at the right price with the right specifications for each project. Our team will work closely with the client to recommend and procure equipment and services from the right supplier. Our procurement services include capital cost estimating, procurement planning, procurement scheduling and monitoring, shipping/expediting, contract management, and bid document issuing and evaluating.
> Installation & Commissioning Oversight
Cogent’s installation & commissioning oversight provides clients with the peace of mind that all work is done in accordance with the client’s standards and Cogent’s best practices for construction and installation.
Cogent will coordinate activities with the client, engineering, procurement and construction to organize the activity sequencing for a fast ramp-up to full production. The benefit of Cogent’s Installation & Commissioning oversight is a faster ramp-up of the project and, as a result, a better return on capital investment.
> Quality Compliance
Defects not identified at the early stages of a project “amplify” in severity as projects progress when undetected. Ensuring and tracking compliance with quality specifications is vital to detecting and remedying problems early as a project control function. Cogent utilizes standards-based quality assurance/control methodologies to develop detailed technical specifications, verification test plans and track compliance activities throughout the project lifecycle.
> Document Control
Cogent understands the importance of an effective document management process for the successful execution of a project. Our team has established standards, procedures and industry best practices to manage all documents during the life cycle of a project, while also conforming to the specific requirements of each client. Our cloud-hosted website manages all project documentation and communications while ensuring that version control, workflows, reporting and collaboration tools are in place to maintain a high standard of project delivery.
We found Cogent’s project and management team to be a group of highly skilled professionals who always put the project’s best interest as their top priority. I would highly recommended Cogent as a trusted partner for your projects.”
