Building trust, through transparent and reliable project management
Based on Proven Experience
Schick has forged a reputation as the team who gets work done, on-time, on budget and specification to the highest quality.
Schick have executed a range of roading construction, drainage, earthworks, footpaths and structural works across New Zealand. We have a substantial knowledge base of the critical success factors, risks, safety, social and environmental concerns that need to be managed to ensure effective and efficient delivery on civil infrastructure projects. See our Projects.
Schick’s approach to project management is centered on our “Have a Plan” system, which is a continuous cycle of planning, communication, execution, and review.
Our standard processes and time fences ensure that the team is clear on what needs to be done to deliver a successful project. Our reporting systems follow the same time fences to ensure that any issues are dealt with and the critical path is maintained.
This approach allows us to hold ourselves accountable to the plan and deliver successful project outcomes.
