Public Works Project

LMI helps keep public works schedules on track and costs in check.


Even as the public infrastructure continues to age and demands for repairs or replacement have grown, construction costs have skyrocketed, and tax revenues have fallen. Against this backdrop, managing risk and maximizing performance of public works portfolios have moved to the top of government agendas.

Public works departments need rock-solid project management more than ever. LMI helps foster sound public works projects by performing accurate, independent assessments of project schedules, cost, and quality and by providing both long- and short-term oversight services. We understand the overarching strategic aspects of public works projects as well as the day-to-day tactics that ensure project success. Our broad perspective equips us to offer the insight and smart alternatives that lead to better management decisions.

For example, for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), LMI has reviewed project management processes and recommended ways to improve the establishment of realistic baselines. For more than 70 large construction projects, we have provided DOE with detailed reports that identify project management shortcomings, review risk management and contingency analyses, and address cost and schedule estimating deficiencies. By implementing our recommendations and continuing to adopt our suggestions, DOE has markedly improved its project performance.

LMI’s capabilities in public works project management include the following:

  • Independent peer review
  • Construction management
  • Project management oversight
  • Quantitative risk assessment
  • Capital asset acquisition support.
