Whether building a research and development campus in Orlando, an automotive OEM part assembly plant in Newark, a billion dollar manufacturing facility in San Diego, or smaller projects in between, our clients can depend on us to deliver the best value on their complex construction projects. Our team is ready to handle every phase of your construction project … from construction feasibility studies, estimating, health and safety, field supervision, quality control, and construction management to commissioning.
We’re experts when it comes to risk management. Our safety record is impeccable, almost unheard of, and our safety program is being used as a model internationally.
As a full service firm we can handle complex projects in-house—start to finish—without potentially disruptive hand-offs between different resources. This project delivery method, when combined with the best practices in project management, creates document-able advantages: condensed schedules, total cost savings, and more predictable, smoother progress. We can point to specific client gains on every project we manage.
When we apply our project management services to clients multiple projects – their “program” — the advantages increase.

As your program managers, we provide direction and leadership so that your facilities projects support your business goals.
We continue to increase our number of Project Management Professionals (PMP) who set the standard throughout GPS for employing best practices.
Project Controls: GPS’ Project Control teams uses a systematic and detailed project life-cycle approach to collecting data, analyzing it, and revealing it in useful formats throughout all phases of a project. We provide current information about budgets, schedules, resources, and trends. This allows you to proactively manage a project based on intelligence, instead of gathering information after the fact — when you see a problem or need to make a decision. It’s a sophisticated service to which we dedicate an experienced team and current technology in the form of multiple project management applications.
