The planning and programming professional disciplines form the second of the two primary platforms of skills and experience upon which the DGA business is based.
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.
