RAI typically employs a "matrix" form of management for its Design/Construct projects, with the RAI Project Manager being the "common thread" responsible to the owner at any given time in the project.
At the Planning Phase, RAI's Director of Planning heads a task force of key personnel to provide the Master Planning, concentrating on Function-Budget-Schedule. This task force may vary accoring to the assignment, but may include planners, designers, conceptual estimators, CPM analysts, etc.
When a project moves to the Design Phase, an RAI Project Manager assumes the primary responsibilities and becomes the owner interface.
The basic concept underlying the RAI approach to major corporate facilities:
- Phase I - Facilities Planning
- Phase II - Schematic Design
- Phase III - Detailed Construction Documents
- Phase IV - Construction
It must be managed as a single project development process. We have formulated our approach through our organizational framework. RAI thus provides owners with a highly flexible option as to how to structure their facility delivery team..
