Today very few companies have surplus management capacity and even fewer have the specialist knowledge available to them in-house that is required to efficiently and effectively manage a recovery from a fire or a flood.
The demands of putting a company back together again after an incident are many and varied. All require immediate attention; some appear in conflict with each other and all have the potential for problems if not dealt with appropriately. The financial aspects of such incidents are dealt with by loss adjusters and claims specialists. However, the project management of the physical reinstatement requires a different type of expertise. Not only is the project manager running the equivalent of a major refurbishment programme but at the same time they must integrate their activity into your business recovery objectives. They have to be flexible in approach, modifying plans and timetables when required. This requires a level of multi-tasking that is seldom seen in everyday project management work but is a core competence of Davis French and Associates.
On major disaster recovery projects where the work involves the integration of multiple individual elements, i.e. building reconstruction/refurbishment, decontamination work, equipment purchase/installation, personnel relocation etc. Davis French and Associates provide consultants that act as overall project managers for this activity, drawing up the individual work programmes with the relevant specialists thus relieving you of this complicated task allowing you to concentrate on recovering your business.
