Your project begins with a basic assessment of the goals to be accomplished. CSD accomplishes this by conducting a Facilities Audit. Our team will visit your site, meet with key personnel involved with the project, and develop a rudimentary scope and budget for how we will accomplish the goals. The deliverable from this stage is a Budgetary Proposal to utilize for project advancement along with a firm proposal to provide pre-engineering for scope development.
The problem with every project is that “You don’t know what you don’t know.” In order to effectively develop the final scope and firm budget for your project we conduct what we refer to as Discovery. The only way to provide the optimal, cost effective solution is to research and document the unique variables that will impact the success of the project. Discovery is a pre-engineering phase where CSD team members develop a comprehensive scope for the project. The deliverable from this phase is a thorough scope document and a firm bid proposal. The scope can be used to obtain firm bids from multiple sources that will meet the exact requirements of the project.
After the award of the project, the CSD team will engineer the solution to meet the specific goals of the project as outlined in the scope document created in Discovery. As the project progresses the CSD Project Manager will work with your team to ensure the project stays on scope, on time, and within budget. There are typically a few key milestones within the Engineering phases which will require your review and approval. This keeps you engaged and informed throughout the process.
Once the Engineering is completed it’s time to Install and Implement the solution. These phases of the project are where you will see the benefits of the multi-stage process come together. The degree of planning and project management during all phases result in an efficient and successful completion of the project. Commissioning of the final solution includes the start-up, training of personnel, and the final hand-off/sign-off of the solution. Upon completion of the project our relationship doesn’t end because the CSD team is always there to provide future support if needed.
