PM Excellence

About Us

PM Excellence is a consultancy based in the UK that provides Construction Project Planning Training, Project Controls Services and assisting our clients get planning employment.

Many planning courses teach how to use planning software "pushing buttons" and are delivered by trainers from other industries without construction experience thus are not able to contextualise planning within the construction industry. We don't teach planning software "pushing buttons" but focus on governance, systems, processes and procedures of undertaking construction planning throughout the project lifecycle.

Our training is drawn from experiences of working in both contractor and client environments in mega and complex projects in the UK like the London2012 Olympics and Crossrail Programme (which currently the largest construction project in Europe) and use examples from them as references for best practice on how to undertake construction planning. These have been successful programmes that have set the benchmark for Project Controls excellence and delivery for future mega projects in the UK. We also have partnerships with some of the leading recruiters in the construction industry to support our trainees in getting employment as Construction Planning Engineers.

We provide training that is relevant and practical in addressing challenges encountered in construction planning.

Who is this the Construction Planning Training for?

This course is primarily aimed at Engineers keen on pursuing a career as a Construction Planner especially those with site experience looking to transition into planning and project controls.

It is also beneficial for Planners who would like to enhance their Project planning skills and is essential for those within Project Management or Commercial Management that want to further their understanding of planning and project controls to enhance their project management skills.

Our training does not teach planning software "pushing buttons" but focusses on the systems, processes and procedures of undertaking construction planning throughout the project lifecycle.
