C&I Engineering

Project Planning and Estimating

At C&I, we understand that planning, monitoring, and controlling are the underpinnings of a successful project. How we integrate our project planning and estimating tools and procedures within our projects is key to our reputation. It allows us to deliver on schedule, within budget and with very little rework; all while keeping our client informed along the way.

Tailored, Transparent Estimates

We make the estimating process as transparent as possible so the client can understand every single cost and its justification. Our Project Controls team is skilled in a variety of estimating techniques, allowing us to establish a total installed cost tailored to your project scope and funding level. C&I’s collaborative approach to project planning and estimating allows us to look at all angles, which improves the accuracy of our estimates.

A core value at C&I is quality: doing the right thing right. We understand establishing an accurate capital budget is the foundation for investment decisions. This why we put so much effort and expertise into our cost estimating services. We help our clients build a portfolio of projects so funding can be allocated appropriately. Several customers rely on our Project Controls group to manage cash flows to facilitate decisions on spending.

Roadmap for Success

Each project benefits from our collaboratively developed, thoroughly documented and diligently executed planning process, no matter the client, size or scope. Our process brings together key stakeholders to diagram, schedule and capture logic between activities developing an executable schedule. When all is said and done, the team has a well-thought-out plan of action.

Planning services are also offered as a separate, stand-alone solution. We help our client’s plan their major capital projects by creating a resource loaded schedule to ensure construction activities can occur within shutdown or outage windows. Our schedulers have the ability to incorporate engineering, construction, and procurement to assist with overall cash flow management. The success of your project is our highest priority.
