Overall Project Management and Leadership
THL provides your solid foundation for a successful project. The various other project team members on large scale construction projects are only involved in some of the project phases. Having an Overall Project Manager provides continuity from the initial conceptual phase to construction completion. This typically reduces the overall project costs by 5-10%
