Our departments at IN-EX – Project management

2022.11.23.

One of the strengths of IN-EX is that our design projects not only involve our highly professional engineers, but we also have a dedicated team that provides back-up support for the management of the projects. Our PM team is responsible for keeping projects on track and monitoring them. This specialized team, which is not common in design offices, can help our engineers to concentrate more on designing buildings more effectively and to have well-planned and monitored projects at the same time.

During the course of our all-round architectural design tasks, we have been confronted with the need to coordinate and to precisely organize the work of the disciplines involved in the design of a modern building, which is the key to successful, timely and efficient delivery. In the past, we have experienced several problems, extra time and costs, and especially a lot of stress due to the re-designs and the modifications, and the overtime caused by disorganized parallel design processes. The pressure, which was generated by the global economic processes have also encouraged us to improve our organizational culture in order to operate more efficiently. We have launched several internal organizational development projects, one of which was the training of design project managers and design managers, and the creation of a manual and a toolkit to support their work.

The IN-EX Project Management Manual is based on international literature, believing that having more than a decade of experience in project management cannot lead us astray. The Project Management Manual also covers the topic of risk management. In this context, our project managers participated in a risk management workshop today, where the problems and their appropriate solutions we face in our designing process were explained. After all, risk management is about managing problems and reducing the likelihood of them occurring before they happen.

At IN-EX, we place a strong emphasis on continuous improvement. The basic idea behind this is the fact that we continuously ask for feedback from our co-workers, when it comes to our designing projects. We do project evaluations on several occasions during each of our projects: we ask our co-workers for their feedback by sending them a standard questionnaire, because we need to know in which areas there is a potential to improve. During our project evaluations we receive useful feedback on development projects, for example on the design-related timing that is part of the Project Management Manual. „I believe the conscious internal scheduling made a great debut. In fact, none of the deadlines were endangered because we miscalculated the duration of the workflow. On the architectural side, we carried out a meticulous analysis. Almost no detail was overlooked and all the tasks had an owner and a specific deadline. “
