$800 Million Project In Kuala Lumpur (KL) Malaysia
The Challenge to the Project:
Our client in KL was having challenges in change order management. This client was months behind in change orders both to their client and vendors. The vendors was on the verge of stopping work, because of non payment and their contracts not being amended.
PE4U flew to KL and immediately began implementing a repeatable process for change order management. One of the things we implemented was a robust change order register to keep track of all changes.
Next we worked with their project controls team and contracts teams to address the vendors who were on the verge of stopping work.
Finally we helped the contracts team update the terms and condition of each changed contract.
We were given 30 days to arrive on site and make substantial changes. In 30 days we processed 52 changes most had cost impacts ranging from $95,000 to $150,000. With a day for day slip in the project schedule contract clause.
With all the changes to the original base project costs the amount increased roughly $5-$8 million.
PE4U was able to take the client's existing excel spreadsheets and added additional fields, formulas and macros to quickly automate the process. We also re-arranged their project folders to easily access changes by client or vendor.
We returned back to Houston and finished the rest of the project from our home office. The teams in KL was happy we assisted them provided us additional projects.
