Lead contractor on this Built To Care Ghana project, NMSI prides itself on its Corporate Social Responsibility programme and are always committed in the upskilling and training of all partners it works with.

Adrian Crowley, NMSI Senior Commercial Manager, initiated a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme for the construction management team within Genelec – Soland – NMSI. As part of the initiative, procurement officer Ms. Cynthia Afi Dzakah helped coordinate, implement and moderate the roll out of the CPD programme.

Starting back in June 2016 and running every Friday for 6 months up to the end of the year, the programme covered a variety of topics:
• Best Practices for Identification and
Support of Claims
• Negotiation of Construction Claims
• How to Process Change Orders
• Bonds
• Pricing Structures
• Differing Site Conditions
• CPM Schedule Review and Analysis – The Method
• Cost Analysis

The programme also allowed for the young construction professionals to learn the art of project management in terms of: bringing a project in on time, managing teams and stakeholders, and working within tight budgets and to a satisfactory standard of workmanship.

The delegates who attended found the training extremely useful and confirmed it has enhanced their skills. They would like to thank Adrian Crowley and the team for their long term commitment and ability to support such a positive activity.
