“In our first month on site, we focused on project controls, resource loading, schedule integration, and controlling the budget,” said Michael Bogan, President of ICQ. “We then got to the point where everything was coordinated and we could produce an updated 5,000 item schedule and all our metrics in 15 minutes to track progress.”
Mike led a team of 16 ICQ staffers working full-time at the Paragon site, applying the best practices and innovative strategies for commissioning, qualification, and validation programs that ICQ has developed over many engagements.
For example, ICQ instituted a risk assessment-based change management process for the Paragon facility instead of a traditional change control process. ICQ engineers also established effective system boundaries for the facility, which is essential for limiting the regulatory burden of needed changes or repairs in the future.
After an initial limited engagement, Paragon asked ICQ to lead the entire CQV program, including utility systems, environmental monitoring, integrating computer systems, and facility start-up.
