Erudite Projects’ project management capabilities provide a well-disciplined and systematic approach to project execution. In order to ensure successful project completion, on time and within budget, we co-ordinate the broad range of seasoned professional disciplines across a wide range of sectors, delivering a creative and technically sound service to our Clients, while conforming to the required quality and safety standards.
We base our systems and procedures on PMBOK guidelines, which are consolidated in our Quality Management System. This ensures logical project execution processes to guide the Project Manager in delivering the project efficiently and professionally.
Through in-house resources and associations, Erudite Strategies has grown into one of Africa’s leading Project Engineering & Design Companies with unequalled expertise and an enviable reputation for the detail design and engineering solutions across Africa.
Erudite Strategies develops the engineering and design from early concepts and initial evaluations, through to detailing and execution.
The design team includes civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, software and piping engineers with the relevant draughtsmen.
A team is designated for each project and a close working relationship between this team and the client ensures that the highest possible engineering standards are attained and applied.
We believe that the start of a successful project starts with a good idea and a well-founded estimate of the costs.
Erudite Projects’ unsurpassed experienced cost engineers, whose judgment and experience are utilized in the application of scientific principles and techniques, is devoted to the management of project cost, involving such activities as estimating, cost control, cost forecasting, investment appraisal and risk analysis, and as such have access to a detailed database, based on actual project histories, of applicable costs and unit rates.
Erudite Projects’ ongoing projects are updated onto this database. We have also identified the leading suppliers in the various fields and boasts the purchasing power to negotiate the best prices and deliveries for clients.
This guarantees that each project is equipped with the latest technology of the highest standards. Experienced professionals in procurement and contract administration work closely with the project managers and discipline engineers to ensure that the best equipment suppliers and subcontractors are secured. Our expediting team monitors the performance of these suppliers, ensuring that delivery dates are met.
Erudite Projects’ approach to project management differs significantly from other engineering companies. We use our own team for a professional fast-track service that uses specialized, project management techniques to oversee the planning, design, and construction of a project, from its beginning to its end. This allows us to complete complex projects on time and within budget.
On EPCM related contracts, our teams manage selected sub-contractors on behalf of the client, making use of industry best practices to control the budget and schedule. The purpose is to control a project’s time, cost and quality—sometimes referred to as a project’s “triple constraint.” We are compatible with all project delivery systems, including design-bid-build, design-build, contract management At-Risk and Public Private Partnerships.
Commissioning is the process that we assure all systems and components of a mining- or industrial plant were designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the operational requirements of the owner or final client.
Plants designed and constructed by Erudite Projects are commissioned by an experienced specialised commissioning team, with the assistance of our client’s plant operators. The commissioning team works with design engineers during plant commissioning and is responsible for hand-over to the client. These engineers will provide training to the client’s engineers and operating staff.
Due to our industry leading engineering and design capabilities in power generation, transmission and distribution, we routinely provide clients with conventional and renewable energy solutions. Our 30 years’ experience has strengthened our knowledge of power systems and today, we are well positioned to develop and deliver power generation plants for clients.
Our passion for developing innovative solutions allows us to assess and determine the most viable energy sources in collaboration with, or on behalf of, our clients. Solutions vary in size and type, from hydropower in the DRC to diesel generation in Ghana, but regardless of scope, clients routinely call on us for practical advice across a wide range of industries. Through our long-standing relationships with independent power producers (IPPs) and financial organizations we offer our clients a comprehensive and integrated solution.
