With the construction industry evolving rapidly over the past few years, the demand for project management services has also been increasing in terms of performance, cost, deadlines, and quality of work. To bridge the gaps, the construction companies have joined hands with project management consultants (PMCs) for expert advice/ project evaluation. However, with the lack of planning, ineffective coordination and deficiency of technical & managerial knowledge, the construction companies often end-up hiring various agencies, who work in silos, making it difficult to handle on day-to-day basis.
