DOSECC Project Management Services

DOSECC offers clients across the geothermal, geotechnical, mining and exploration, and scientific industries a full-spectrum solution for their drilling projects.  Our project management services relieve our clients of the logistics burden while allowing a single point of contact throughout the process.

The DOSECC team includes experienced project managers such as certified Project Management Professional (PMP) Brian Grzybowski, M.B.A., PE, who work directly with the client to facilitate and support cost-effective scientific drilling projects around the globe.  Trevor Atkinson and Philippe Wyffels are also experienced project management experts who support our clients on a variety of projects.

Drilling at Chicxulub

From Planning through Post-Analysis

Our seasoned Project Managers assist our clients with all stages of the drilling project, establishing the project goals and evaluating every aspect of the site, equipment needed, measurement criteria, and timelines.  If the drilling conditions require technologies that are not currently available, your project manager will work with our engineering services team and our drilling equipment fabrication team to innovate the needed technology to successfully reach the project goals.

Your project manager also works with our data analysts and preliminary assessment team to ensure that data gathering, measurement, and reporting meets the clients needs.  He or she will also be working closely with your DOSECC drilling operations team, taking care of all the logistical details of preparing for, conducting, and finalizing the actual drilling process.

On Time and Under Budget

Drilling projects can range from relatively straightforward to painstakingly complex.  In most cases, the drilling itself is the simple part, whereas the preparation and logistics management can quickly become overwhelming if not handled with experience.  Every project requires strong problem solving skills and diligence to ensure that milestones and budgets are met.  Your project manager will work with you create a Gant Chart to set expectations for the project timelines and establish project budgets.

We are recognized by our clients as one of the most highly accountable and reliable partners they work with.  Put simply, we get things done on time and under budget.

Case Study in Brief

The Rapid Access Ice Drill (RAID) project is an excellent example of DOSECC’s unsurpassed project management capabilities, as it represents one of our most complex projects to date.  Not only were we tasked with drilling a core from the rock beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, a feat not previously undertaken, but the extreme conditions would require custom engineering and fabrication of both drilling and transportation equipment. Our team trained and planned for every possible eventuality and worked in constant problem solving mode at every stage, including intensive staff training and preparation, to successfully complete the project.

This project was funded by the National Science Foundation, who reported to our surprise that we were their first partner to finish on time and under budget, despite it’s massive scale.
