Pyments Project Monitoring – (PPM)

Pyments Project Monitoring was born of frustration arising from time consuming and costly retrospective analysis in regard to disputed matters. Time and again we found poor record keeping and administrative housekeeping a contributing factor which became prejudicial to Clients entitlement.

With modern forms of construction contract Pyments Project Monitoring takes a pro-active approach in line with good working practices. We provide early pragmatic advice and solutions, addressing potential problems as and when they arrive; Far better than trying to resolve issues post event, or even worse, in contemplation of legal proceedings.

Principles of PPM

Capture contemporaneous records as the works proceed

Pyments Project Monitoring, periodically captures project(s) using High Definition photographic images via an optimum route through and around the works, allowing regular recording and monitoring of the planned/varied work. The resultant photographic record is individually referenced and catalogued to provide a contemporaneous and independent record.

Verify the works comply with the Contract with regard to Time, Quality and Cost

By comparison of the photographic records, design drawings, and with an eye to the construction programme, the Time, Quality and Cost of the project can be monitored and the verification of compliance within this aspect realised. Pyments communicate this via reports/dashboards/summary fact sheets to allow the end user of the Project Monitoring service, to make informed decisions during the project. This process also provides a pictorial as-built of the project and in accompaniment with Progress verification can provide a detailed time slice analysis of how the works have progressed.

Action any verified non-compliances via notification, early warning meetings and/or implementation of mitigation measures.

The Project Monitoring Service allows at the time actions to be made. Following identification of issues/problems via the monitoring visit, this is relayed to the team to allow a proactive approach and provide “at the time” reactive actions oppose to retrospective actions, thereby allowing the implementation of mitigation measures and/or alternative approaches to be considered and solutions engineered.
