GPC United States
Consul: Aidhean Campbell
Tel: +1 503 780 5722
The USA has some of the biggest projects in the world. Along with a growing population, ageing infrastructure and desire to meet the environmental challenges that lay ahead, investment in infrastructure of all sorts is set to expand in the coming years, with an ever growing focus on efficiency and on-time, on-budget delivery.
There seems to be a growing recognition amongst business in general that detailed planning phase (in terms of all aspects of projects; scope, cost, schedule, funding, stakeholder engagement etc. etc.) can allow for much more successful projects – this leads to better than ever opportunities for quality planners and project controls professionals to make a real impact on the world around us all.
Planning Planet has a relatively small membership in North America, so of the main drives of the US consulate will be to develop a larger membership and recognition of the quality resources (of all sorts) available through PP.
Other major goals are:
- Develop more Consulates to cover the country.
- Initiate dialog with existing US members to poll their opinion / ideas for PP.
- Begin to raise the profile of PP amongst industry and individuals alike.
- Develop more goals based on feedback from you!
