Project and Major Program Management

Whether you have a large complex project or a multitude of projects integrated into one program, you need effective project management for power systems in order to succeed. Power Grid Engineering is well equipped to make sure programs happen when they’re supposed to — the way they’re supposed to — and with outstanding schedule, scope and budget performance. Utilizing our staff’s vast years of experience, and with the aid of the most up-to-date processes, PGE is able to manage any size project to successful completion on time and on budget.

Not only do we provide project management for power systems, but we also provide testing and commissioning, power system studies, substation design engineering, relay settings, and protection and control services. 

We maintain and operate extensive program management systems and processes, including intricate processes for project controls, subcontracting management, and invoicing. We schedule, track, and report on various elements of the program to gauge individual projects and overall program progress. With our world-class risk management control capabilities, we systematically manage program risk and increase certainty of success. Our clients are provided professional Program/Project Managers to support management at every phase, from engineering design to startup and commissioning. Benefits of our program and project management for power systems services include specific Service Level Agreements (SLAs) of defined scope, schedule and budget.
