The chief aim of project management is to achieve all project goals, within the given constraints.
Orbitbeam is a projects-based company. Even our organizational structure is defined to be responsive to the demanding process of project management.
Audiovisual systems are inherently very complicated to manage as they interface with so many other trades and systems that go into a facility. Installing audiovisual equipment in a space involves coordination with multiple contractors - architects, electro-mechanical, HVAC, IT and interior designers. Hence standards-based project management is essential for the successful integration of an audiovisual system.
The engineering phase forms the foundation upon which the process of project management functions. Good engineering documentation plays a crucial role here.
Almost all projects need to be delivered on schedule and within budget. All our project engineers have origins in AV backgrounds (intentionally) and are adept at using time proven project management tools and techniques.
A project engineer plans, coordinates, directs and monitors the following activities:
- Site preparation & acceptance
- First fix and rough-in
- Equipment delivery
- Installation, terminations and labelling
- Substantial completion and start of warranty
- Training and project sign-off
A project engineer also constantly communicates with the engineering team to document inevitable deviations and changes from the original design, that happen during a project execution. This as-built documentation is critical for future support, maintenance and upgrades.
At Orbitbeam, project management is all about proactive planning and up-front communication. Our project engineers comprehend the activities of other trades and interdependencies with audiovisual activities. They are fully aware of contractual responsibilities, managing project scope with client and other contractors, fulfilling their obligations in a professional way.
They have a comprehensive understanding of deliverables and project activities, keeping the project on course by continually monitoring, clarifying and aligning expectations and responsibilities of all the parties concerned and satisfactorily delivering project after project for more than a decade of Orbitbeam's existence.
