Project Management Services
MacKay Group Project Management services to Energy and Resources companies:
In order that management resources are focussed on the project in-hand and that the food and accommodation services are maintained at a consistently high standard, MacKay Group provides management control for clients who wish to adopt a 'self-catering' approach to their on-site services.
We perform exactly the same function as a catering contractor in that we plan the mobilisation of personnel, equipment, foods, other consumables, select staff, train your staff and manage the catering and camp services on a day to day basis.
The key benefit to clients using this model is that while we agree the cost budget with you in advance, you retain flexibility to change the budget whenever you wish. Your management control over the camp services is much increased since our Project Manager is representing you rather than a contractor.
