Construction project management


Management – is a special kind of activity that transforms a disorganized crowd into an efficient and focused productive group. Management as such is a driving force for social change and an example of significant social change.

In general form, a project (eng. project) is “something that is conceived or planned” (Webster’s explanatory dictionary), (from Latin projectus – thrown forward, protruding, protruding forward) – a plan, idea, image, embodied in the form of a description, justification of calculations, drawings, revealing the essence of the concept and the possibility of its practical implementation.

A project – is a temporary venture designed to create unique products, services, or outcomes.

Project features:

  • uniqueness;
  • limited time
  • having a goal;
  • complex system of coordination of interrelated operations;
  • a large number of risks, sometimes critical;
  • a large number of changes;
  • availability of a project manager and team

Project management – is both an art and a science. Art, because it requires skill, tact and intuition in managing people. Science – because a deep knowledge of various techniques and methods is needed in order to urgently direct efforts in the right direction, despite the fact that time and resources are limited, and the budget is strictly defined.

Construction project management – is an activity aimed at achieving the goals and objectives of an investment and construction project, starting with the preparation of an investment plan and ending with the construction and commissioning of an object.

Technical supervision of the construction process


Technical supervision of the construction process – A complex of expert and verification activities carried out in order to ensure the exact observance of the terms, cost, volume and quality of the construction work determined by the project.

Technical supervision functions:

  • - participation in the design and signing of certificates of inspection of hidden works and intermediate acceptance of critical structures;
  • - control over the timeliness and correctness of execution of the executive documentation;
  • - supervision over the compliance of the completed (in progress) construction and installation works, used building materials (products, structures) and equipment with approved design solutions and state (interstate) standards, including ensuring the strength, stability, reliability of bearing and enclosing structures and performance buildings (structures);
  • - control of the availability of the appropriate right to a land sector, approved design (design and estimate) documentation, a positive conclusion of the examination of projects, as well as notifying the bodies exercising state architectural and construction control and supervision about the start of construction and installation work;
  • - supervision over the observance by the contractor (general contractor) of the requirements of the organizational and technological documents that determine the technological process of the construction and installation works;
  • - control over the availability of a license for the right to carry out the relevant types of licensed architectural, urban planning and construction activities;
  • - control over the organization and implementation by the contractor (general contractor) of all types and forms of their own production control and supervision of the quality of construction (input, operational, acceptance, laboratory, geodetic and others);
  • - implementation of regular and proper maintenance of the technical supervision log, as well as control over the execution of their instructions entered in the technical supervision log;
  • - submission on a monthly basis to the body of state architectural and construction control and supervision of a report on the status and progress of the construction of the facility.

Upon completion of the work, the technical supervision specialist together with the contractor are responsible for the compliance of the finished object with construction legislation, design and regulatory documentation.

Author's supervision of the construction process


Author’s supervision is carried out in the manner prescribed by the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and is carried out regardless of the form of ownership, both of the customer himself and the developer of the project. Author’s supervision over the construction of objects of all levels of responsibility is carried out by the author (developer) of the project, or by experts who have the appropriate certificates for this type of activity and who participated in the development of the project.

In case of justified impossibility of fulfilling the provisions, the author of the project, at the choice of the customer of the project, can delegate the conduct of field supervision to specialized design organizations or experts (who have the appropriate certificates) who have not previously participated in the development of the project. At the same time, they cannot make changes to the project without the consent of its author.

Author’s supervision – is the author’s powers to exercise control over:

  • participation in the design and signing of certificates of inspection of hidden works and intermediate acceptance of critical structures;
  • development of a construction project (construction documentation) carried out by the author (s) of an architectural and urban planning work;

Author’s supervision over the construction of buildings and structures is carried out:

  • to ensure the compliance of architectural, construction, technological, other technical solutions and technical and economic indicators of construction objects (put into operation) with the solutions and indicators provided for in the projects, including in the working projects of these objects;
  • to increase the responsibility of project developers, customers and contracting construction and installation organizations for the quality, reliability and durability of erected or reconstructed buildings and structures.

Technical and construction audit


Technical and construction audit – A complex of services aimed at a thorough study and assessment of various indicators (from technical to financial) of an investment construction project at any stage of the life cycle of a construction project.

Who needs an audit?

We are approached not only by customer investors, but also by construction organizations with a request to conduct a construction audit. The purpose of this audit is to confirm the scope of additional work performed. This is a fairly common situation in construction, when additional work is added to the current contract and the volumes specified in it. At this stage, disagreements arise between the contractor and the customer. And the contractor is forced to prove the validity and expediency of additional work. In the current legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan, there is no definition of the concept of “construction audit”. However, in the construction industry, this concept is used quite often. Numerous cases of changes in the cost of the project, usually upward, have led to the fact that the construction audit has become very popular.

What questions does a construction audit answer?

When ordering a construction audit, you can get information from competent specialists on the following issues:

  • whether the calculations declared in the project meet the regulatory requirements, as well as the requirements of economy and reasonable spending of the investor's funds;
  • whether the volume of construction work stated in the estimate complies with the project;
  • are there any mistakes, additions in the estimates;
  • are all types of work taken into account in the estimate calculations, what building materials the contractor plans to use, are there alternative materials at lower prices, etc.

Financial and technical consulting

Financial and technical consulting in construction is the process of providing expert support and advice in the field of finance and technical aspects of construction projects. This includes the analysis of financial indicators, the development of financial strategies, the assessment of the technical viability of projects, as well as the determination of optimal technical solutions.


A financial and technical consultant in construction can assist clients in identifying and assessing financial risks, developing business plans, forecasting costs and revenues, as well as in planning and managing financial resources of the project.


He can also provide expert advice on the selection of optimal technical solutions, evaluation and selection of suppliers of equipment and materials, as well as the introduction of innovative technologies in construction.


Financial and technical consulting in construction helps clients to make informed decisions, optimize costs, improve the efficiency of projects and achieve financial stability.
