All strategic projects are managed by a multi-departmental Project Team of professionals with backgrounds in architecture, engineering, construction, project management and costing.
Membership on the Project Team varies according to project requirements but may include representatives from:
- Client/End user group (School, Department, Humber Executive Team)
- Capital Development team
- Stakeholder groups (community members, government agencies, special interest groups)
- Humber’s Technical Team (ITS, Public Safety, Capital Development & Facilities Management, Audit & Finance and Campus Services)
- Consultants, contractors, suppliers, vendors and technical/subject matter experts.
Project Team Responsibilities
- Managing and completing all phases of the project: Initiation, Planning, Execution and Close-out

- Managing the selection process for architects, construction firms and other professionals.
- Ensuring that the project meets regulatory requirements and conforms to Humber’s quality, design, planning and procurement standards.
- Managing the project budget and schedule and ensuring that any changes are identified, evaluated for impact, and approved at the appropriate level.
- Developing strategies to mitigate risks and manage issues associated with the project.

Project Management Methodology
Building a strategic project involves many people and many tasks. To plan, track and manage all of these activities, the Project Team relies on a set of guidelines and processes known as a project management methodology. This methodology is an important tool in the completion of a successful strategic project.
There are different types of project management methodologies. In consultation with the client and other project partners, the Project Team will select the methodology best suited to the scope and requirements of each project. Once implemented, the selected methodology helps the Project Team manage time, schedule, cost, quality, changes, risks and issues during the Execution and Close-out phases.
