We follow PMI Program-Management Methodology, all our similar-related-projects are Rolled-up in One-Single Program; this turns out to be very beneficial for our internal processes and for end-results for our clients.
Program Management help us and our Clients in sharing corporate-wide resources, as different projects as fighting for same pool of resources, Program Management kicks-in and coordinate fair distribution of resources according to Schedules and other preset indicators.
Program Management helps us in competing with other contractors by smartly lowering our prices as Procurement becomes easier for us, similar-related-projects share same scheme of materials, buying large quantities from similar materials entitle us for huge discounts from manufacturers. This make everybody happy especial the Client who will get the project done in much lower costs.
Again, we are following PMI Project-Management Methodology according to PMBOK Guidelines, by following this methodology, we ease our venture in fulfilling our Clients requirements as such methodology is approved and adapted by many Clients.
All plans are agreed upon with the Client and all are locked as Baseline Plans that will help later in measuring KPI’s and deviations; this will help in catching negative signs at early stages where fixing such deviation will be much easier and cheaper to all concerned parties. Periodical meetings with Client and with internal staff are held to track the progress of all plans.
On the other hand; PMO “Project Management Office” plays a vital role in unifying all Project’s Management Methodology which makes moving of resources among projects very easy and fast; as all Project Managers receives the same training, the same tools, and the same processes.

- Primavera ver. 6
- Oracle ERP “moving to cloud soon – Oracle Fusion”
- Machines Tracking System “shows each machine location, production, etc.”
- Building Modeling Information “BIM” via Revit, etc.”
We have both; on premises staff who looks at Critical Fast Requirements on the engineering level, and we have an outsourced consultancy services that we partially own. Such offices provide all required support for Engineering Issue like:
- Urban development

SAPAC SAFETY SURVEILLANCE
Sapac is responsible for its own safety programs and for its agents and employees. Safety equipment and safeguards suitable to the occupational hazards involved and conforming to the safety regulations at the worksite must be furnished by each contractor.
In the event of an apparent violation of a safety standard, the Construction Manager will call the violation to the contractor’s attention and request that the situation be corrected.
The seriousness of the violation dictates the abatement period allowed. In the event of imminent danger to life, limb, or property, the Construction Manager will insist that the portion of the work affected be stopped until the situation is corrected to minimize the hazards relative to the specific area of work. The Construction Manager will inform the contractor at the time a violation is noted.
All construction sites are equipped with proper safety and environment protection tools; first-aid services are provided at all sites.
