program management

Ditesco provides a comprehensive program management service that functions to keep multiple related projects and their diverse elements in sync, on time and within budget. Our dedication to a total project delivery philosophy helps to reduce the uncertainty and risk in projects small and large alike.

Our team works closely with each client to define, plan, implement and integrate every aspect of each project to create a cohesive program. We understand the importance of continual communication and the benefit of looking ahead to manage a project to successful completion. We are able to foresee problems and recommend solutions before they impact a client’s vision for the program.

By establishing a proactive environment from the onset, we can improve the performance of each project and deliver timely, tangible benefits.

project management

Our team proactively manage key delivery metrics to ensure a fully integrated delivery. Our project management services span the gamut from professional services solicitation, to contract document creation, to construction oversight. Throughout delivery we continually control cost, schedule and quality to ensure a project is completed to the satisfaction of the client and community.

Our project involvement is most valuable when we are part of the project team from the onset. With this approach, we can minimize, monitor and control the probability and/or impact of risk events.
