Project Management

...........

A healthcare facility in most projects involves 3 main entities:

CLIENT – ARCHITECTURAL AND ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS – CONTRACTOR

However there are several other agencies that become involved in varying degrees over a period of time:


  • Owner and his advisers (who in many cases are qualified doctors), investors and financial consultants

  • Architectural and Engineering consultants from other sources

  • Equipment vendors of medical and non medical equipment (and this can be a substantial no.)

  • Specialized consulting firms eg Health informatics, Lighting, Acoustics, Fire and Safety, Audio visual, Interior designers and so on.

  • PROJECT MANAGEMENT; SIMPLY PUT, IS MANAGING ALL THESE ENTITIES SO THAT THE HOSPITAL CAN BE BUILT WITHIN BUDGET , IN A TIMELY FASHION AND CONFIRMING TO THE CLIENT’S EXPECTATIONS.

    This is usually done by preparing a Master Schedule- making sure that this is followed is the key to project management.
