Howard Humphreys has over the years adopted a ‘management-by-projects’ approach to running its business. This has enabled the firm to set up systems and build expertise in its staff compliment that is necessary in providing Project Management services.

Besides the systems already set up as standard procedures for auditing, tracking, reporting and controlling projects, Howard Humphreys has invested in appropriate software such as Virtual Manager and Primavera Project Planner (P3).

The Company employs professionals with diverse technical knowledge and experience in contractual matters, planning and scheduling, cost management and control, construction management, ICT, quantity surveying, accounting, and engineering design.
