Clearly understanding the goals and objectives of the development team and then providing quality specifications and pricing early in the process, sets the stage for a successful project. HELP’s industry leading project management tool (HELPro®), coupled with integral checklists and accompanying questionnaires enables HELP to quickly identify accurate and meaningful data that allows the owner to make early and high quality decisions. With those decisions, the HELP Project Management Team can work to ensure that the architectural space program and/or schematic drawings will accommodate the appropriate quantity and type of equipment required and budgeted. This simultaneous equipment and architectural programming activity enables the schematic design process to proceed at a rapid pace without any backtracking to accommodate equipment information. In turn, the entire project schedule will be accelerated and information needs will be met on time, which improves the efficiency of the entire team.
