“Earlier, customers relied on driving the project through an architect and appointing various executing agencies either directly or through the appointed architect. Current trends of the market have evolved wherein the client only has to appoint a single nodal agency, having expertise in all elements involved in building construction, to steer the project to completion. Global C worked on various suites of services to cater to the different requirements of the client looking at the evolving trends and needs of the customers, we are offering comprehensive consulting support to the customers, which not only makes decision making easier at all levels but also maintains the accountability of the same under a single head; making it more convenient for the customer” said Aman Moudgil, Partner with Global C in our interview with him.
WORKINGS OF GLOBAL C
Global C had a modest start to its journey, with initial projects being residential ones such as Group Housing and Multi-storied Integrated Townships; graduating to more diverse verticals with time. The organization now specializes in delivering strategic consulting services which involve Business Plan Formulation, Investment Strategy, Financial Modeling, Market Research, Land valuation. It also offers Structural Engineering and Software Solutions to help monitor the project on a day-to-day basis.
In their 14-year journey, they faced several issues, varying from delayed projects at times due to limited cash flow, land acquisition issues, change in project use or development and even Government policy change. It has only made the team more knowledgeable and expanded their horizon and their domain expertise.
Global C has always been a tech-savvy company. They use Online Collaboration Software for Project Management. In projects with cost constraints, they utilize cheaper services like Google Docs efficiently. The client(s) in general procure CAD and other drawing tools for document control and information retrieval at project-specific sites.
The most recent addition has been using Whatsapp Groups for delivery of daily project reports and key data in a Group in which Project Promoters & Directors are also added. For critical information or decisions, Whatsapp Groups act as efficient tools which even clients who keep busy or travel can utilize.
Further, ERP and utilization of efficient document control is an essential tool for any PMC Company of a Project Development Company. They have extended services purely for ERP and Procurement Management for large companies which may not require a regular project management team when engaging an EPC Contractor for large-scale Projects.
The market is diverse & complex. Global C has worked with a mindset of project delivery & efficiency as per good engineering & global practices in spite of erratic cash flows in projects. Quality manpower is always an issue in the Indian subcontinent, but with better on-site training, personal involvement of key management, efficient scrutiny, and pre-employment checks, they have procured an efficient team.
“Investing in a team is far more crucial for a company than to merely have processes in place for a sustainable business model”~Aman.
