Procon has been tapped to provide program and project management for the implementation of new workspace standards for a sub-agency within the Department of Defense. The agency needs to transform its workspace configuration to improve collaboration, enhance productivity, update connectivity, reduce fixed costs and increase workspace equality. The current configuration of office cubicles provides little flexibility for growth or implementation of alternative workplace strategies in place. Consolidation plans will take advantage of more efficient space plans, flexible furniture solutions, and mobile work strategies and desk sharing. For the two-year project Procon will provide project coordination, scheduling, budgeting, and other construction management services.
Procon was awarded a contract by the U.S. Senate Sergeant at Arms to provide Program and Project Management services for its nationwide state office security program. The multi-year contract will provide the Sergeant at Arms with comprehensive construction management services to oversee upgrades to over 400 senate member offices in all 50 states. Procon will not only coordinate individual construction projects but will also develop and implement customized protocols to streamline the program to improve efficiency and quality and reduce risk and schedule delays. The Senate contract extends Procon’s profile on Capitol Hill where we are involved in an ongoing furniture and space planning contact with the U.S. House of Representatives.
