Phase 3 - Project Management and Construction
Once the project is formally approved based on the completion of phase 2 deliverables, phase 3 project management can begin. If the beverage manufacturer chooses to purchase plant process equipment from Providence Process Solutions Preferred Partners, the project management rate charged is typically 2.5% of the project costs managed by Providence Process Solutions using an open book type of invoicing. Otherwise, the project management fee is typically set to 5% of the project value.

All project management activities comply with PMI standards and include periodic project team meetings, tight coordination with the general contractor, all equipment contract administration, all process equipment installation including rigging, process piping, process wiring installation and guidance for local building contractors on items specific to process equipment requirements. Equipment start-up and training oversight is also included as part of this service.
In order to effectively manage the build of a brewery, Providence Process Solutions will physically move to the job-site location for whatever time is required to support the project management contract’s scope of supply. On-site time typically begins a few weeks before the first tank is scheduled to arrive and finishes when the first batch of beer is packaged. A project sign-off list is managed after each piece of equipment has been successfully started up. Once all equipment had been signed off by the customer, the project is closed and the PPS job-site manager departs from the work site.
