Whilst it is accepted that planners and programmers must be fully familiar with the capabilities of modern specialist computer software, and DGA personnel are no exception; it's of equal importance that planning is not reduced to a mechanical process, albeit a very complex one.
Our planning and programming team have the necessary practical experience in the fields of forensic planning and delay analysis to understand the site variables that affect outputs; the construction sequences that lead to higher efficiency; and understand the impact of the array of 'unforeseeable circumstances' that can befall a live construction project.
DGA are particularly keen to promote project planning skills, something we see as key to our objective of contributing to a more efficient and cost effective industry. We have developed a series of training programmes specifically aimed at young engineers and similar professionals, geared towards understanding the inter-dependability of construction activities and the practical considerations necessary to properly plan a project. These skills are essential in making sure any planning or programming contribution has real value.
