What ICS-Consulting Is All About
ICS-Consulting provides guidance and assistance to its Owner, Contractor, Design Professional, Surety, and Construction Manager clients in development or improvement of their in-house Construction Project Time Management capabilities.
Setting up a Project Facilitation (Planning or Scheduling) Department for the first time requires special expertise because there is much more to organizational development than what is involved in merely producing and maintaining a Project Schedule. Our contributions include initial planning, staffing, standardizing procedures, training, software selection, corporate rollout, and long-term oversight.
Why ICS-Consulting Was Created

Merely knowing how to plan and schedule a project is hardly sufficient preparation for the challenges that loom ahead. Even the most seasoned Planners and Schedulers would struggle through the various stages of operational development and implementation. We created ICS-Consulting to fill this institutional void. On our staff of seasoned Construction PTM practitioners are several individuals who have founded or improved Construction PTM organizations for some of the largest companies on the continent.
