Reed & Reed measures performance in terms of two fundamental criteria: cost and schedule.
- Cost: We plan and expect to meet or beat our budgets on every single project. Reed & Reed bids, budgets, and controls costs with proven practices: rigorous planning, selection of the best means and methods, allocation of necessary resources, monitoring of progress, and a constant eye out for improvement. Whether projects are priced on a fixed basis, time and materials, guaranteed maximum price, or some other innovative pricing structure, our record in terms of cost performance is superior. We know that cost matters greatly to our clients – and to us.
- Schedule: Schedule performance is crucial to every project we undertake. The sooner a project is on-line, the sooner benefits begin to accrue to the end user. We begin with detailed critical path-method scheduling, and build our project execution plan around it. Advance materials purchases, internal resource allocations, identification and mitigation of external risk factors that can impact schedule, anticipation of conflicts and coordination issues, and innovative approaches to problem solving: all of these create opportunities for improving schedule performance. We routinely focus on these areas as a means to that end.As a result, early completion is the rule, not the exception at Reed & Reed.
