Have a question or want to speak with a technical professional?
VERTEX is a multi-discipline firm with global coverage. Our international network of resources enables us to provide multi-national clients with the most qualified local professionals who understand the culture, language, and regulatory framework.
VERTEX offers cost-effective Construction Program Management services, bringing effective resource prioritization and reduced risks through sound project delivery methods.
VERTEX is routinely ranked by Engineering News Record (ENR) as one of the top Program Management Firms in the country. Our highly experienced and knowledgeable program managers ensure that every project reaches completion on time and within budget. With our help, your programs will remain on course without losing sight of the greater picture.
VERTEX serves as a program manager to oversee a group of related projects in a coordinated manner so that clients can gain economies of scale and to ensure project controls are consistent across multiple projects. Coordinated program management offers benefits that are not available when projects are managed individually, as resources are harmonized and prioritized across projects to lower the overall costs and risks of a program. Reports meet or exceed the requirements outlined by ASTM, and take the cost estimating and long-range budget forecasting a step further by including an additional Capital Needs estimate for longer-term evaluations.
Construction Program Management that Achieves Desired Results
Multi-Site, multi-year construction programs or projects require the coordination, management, and integration of multiple, concurrent assignments. VERTEX’s construction program managers handle all the relationships and resources necessary to attain an owner’s desired outcome. We have experience in managing large, highly complex projects or a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) that involves multiple construction sites and/or projects.
By acting as an extension of our client’s staff, VERTEX program managers integrate multiple facets of the construction process (procurement, design, planning, construction, and activation) and provide management and technical expertise for each of the client’s programs or projects. We also plan for contingencies, identify and track key milestones, and allow windows for stakeholder feedback and involvement.
Full-service program management
Unlike construction management, which focuses on project implementation and processes, program management requires a programmatic and policy-level perspective. Guided by a clear understanding of our client’s objectives, VERTEX manages all aspects of your program or project. From concept to completion, we supply the crucial technical and administrative services to ensure our clients meet their program and/or project objectives.
VERTEX’s program managers offer the following solutions:
Securing a variety of products or services.
Supplying the framework for control and reporting systems.
Managing programming, master-planning, and design service providers.

As leaders in program management, VERTEX delivers on these and many other aspects of your program or project.
QA/QC For Program Management
Program Manual Development:
In Program manual development, VERTEX develops and delivers program manual outlines, pre-construction meeting agenda outlines, and field checklist outlines. The next phase of our Program manual development, is set to deliver the finalized program manual, pre-con meeting agenda templates, and field checklists. Additionally, VERTEX offers program manual refinements as needed and submits weekly QA/QC field reports based on observations to the client.
Program Observation Services:
For Program Observation, VERTEX meets with the construction team to review documents, conduct site observations, and discuss pre-construction meeting agenda topics. We provide third party quality control services, reporting major issues discovered during site visits and ensuring construction proceeds satisfactorily. VERTEX also opines on the sufficiency of workers and any visible major defects or omissions.
In the Administration Services, VERTEX reviews substitutions or value engineering items, administers quality control testing and data distribution, and manages quality control meeting minutes and agendas. VERTEX also handles pre-activity agendas and meeting minutes.
VERTEX will conduct training sessions to support our clients’ construction programs. Training includes: hard and soft cost documentation, preparing construction draw packages, checklists, templates, example forms, and review of the construction draw packages, including all logs. Training can also include review of schedules and costs.
