He shared that external power supply through shafts should be supplied to these systems and which can further be backed up with UPS on external surfaces which can be useful in case of emergency.

 

Integration of BIM was discussed in same panel which seems obvious future to the panelists. Manomav was started in 2012 with BIM Services. We have already served various projects ranging from INR 10 Crore wroth to INR 300 Crore worth when it comes to successful implementation of Building Information Technology.

 

We have interesting observation when it comes to BIM Implementation. Abhinav Bhardwaj, Director – Manomav Engineers believes that any construction is design at GFC level by Architects which is further detailed at Shop Drawings level by Contractors. In current implementation plan, architects & consultants are getting ready to adopt BIM however the ecosystem is incomplete without implementing it with contractors at Shop Drawing level where Manomav can play a vital role. Manomav has incorporating BIM in its Project Management Services for building better control on Project Monitoring during execution.

Building Scalability in Operations with Project Management Office

We have been serving various geographical areas including Delhi, Gurugram, Pune, Ahmedabad, Sikar, Lucknow and other parts of the country. With this kind of diversification Manomav has planned to operationalize the management of projects by establishing a Project Management Office (PMO). Members of PMO are highly energetic and keen to play vital role in new generation of Project Management.

Manomav has implemented the strategy of managing the projects using the strategy of controlling them using Projects, Program and Portfolio Management. Currently, PMO will be actively engaged in Building Portfolio of Manomav, where the below two leading programs will shape the organization:

  1. Implementation of MicroPMC to bring Scalability in monitoring of building projects below 15 Crore.
  2. Institutionalize the Project Management Practices with PMO Support for building projects above 15 Crore

Abhinav Bhardwaj, Director – Growth, shared that the recent introduction of weekly executive call has developed accountability of key team members and focuses on KRA improvements. He believes, that now with Manomav 2.0 the establishment of strong PMO with integrated support will improve the quality of monitoring. The best part of this program is to even develop monitoring guidelines for front end staff with a concept of Package Manager, Document Controller and Assistant Project Manager. He further added, that with the new energy flow in the changed system, Manomav employees will be equipped with more trainings and better skills to strengthen the skillsets of each one.

We are really hopeful to deliver a scalable, reliable, standard and satisfactory services to our existing customers with this new change of Manomav 2.0. At core, Manomav is already empowering Project Management Body of Knowledge in Construction Industry with fusion of Automation.
