Food and Beverage Industry Project Management

Our experience encompasses all food disciplines, including dairy, meat, poultry, fish, egg, vegan, and beverage facilities. From the beverage industry to biotech to developing innovative products, we are experts in sanitary process construction. Our detailed processes and proven methodology eliminate costly project delays and minimize downtime.

Typically, there are a lot of disciplines that are engaged in every project – and most projects will hire a separate contractor to handle each part of their project. This adds complexity to a project and slows the entire process. This can lead to overlapping roles, duplication of efforts, and poor quality control.

Project managers are vital in bridging the gap between the designers, the engineers, and the contractors implementing the work. The right project manager determines whether a project is completed on time.

Whether you need a team to oversee your project from start to finish or only need us to manage a small portion of your project, DeJong Consulting is the project management team to get the job done. We are experts at coordinating, communicating, and managing production timelines to ensure that each piece of equipment is ready at the right time.

Risk Management Services

Risk management is an essential aspect of every project, and it involves identifying, assessing, and mitigating potential risks that could jeopardize the success of the project. As project managers, our primary focus is to protect our clients from liability by ensuring compliance with safety regulations and implementing risk management procedures to reduce the likelihood of accidents and incidents.

Time loss and safety regulation compliance are two critical factors that influence risk management. Therefore, we have designed our risk management strategy to address these issues.

We conduct regular training sessions to educate our employees on safety measures and protocols. We also ensure that all employees sign off on these protocols and that we have adequate oversight to ensure compliance. By doing so, we can reduce the risk of accidents and incidents, thereby ensuring a safer working environment for our employees and a more successful project.

Our experience is also a valuable asset in risk management. We use our past experience and knowledge to identify many different types of risks and assess their likelihood and impact. This enables us to develop proactive strategies to mitigate these risks before they occur. We also conduct regular risk assessments to identify potential risks that may emerge during the project's lifecycle, such as legal frameworks, time constraints, quality of work, supply chain, and technological vulnerabilities.

Physical on-site risks are a crucial aspect of risk management. We have implemented safety protocols to minimize the risk of accidents and incidents on-site. We also conduct regular safety inspections to identify any potential hazards and take necessary actions to mitigate them. By doing so, we can maintain a safer working environment for our employees, reduce the risk of accidents and incidents, and ensure maximum productivity.

In conclusion, effective risk management is critical for the success of every project. By identifying potential risks, assessing their likelihood and impact, and implementing proactive strategies to mitigate them, we can ensure a safer working environment for our employees, comply with safety regulations, and deliver successful projects that meet our clients' expectations.

Construction Project Management Services

Construction is the core of our work. Our construction managers work under the guidance of project managers to ensure that engineering designs are implemented as intended. From site management to design management and coordination of sub-contractors, our experienced construction managers know how to keep the job on track. Ultimately, staying on budget and on schedule relies on our construction managers.

While our project managers can proactively identify potential obstacles and help stage supplies in advance, it's our construction managers who are the real heroes on the ground, making the project happen. Their continuous inspections and quality checks help to spot potential issues and escalate them when needed. They also play a crucial role in meeting building regulations and ensuring the health and safety of the construction crews.
