Project management sets the course for a project’s successful conclusion. An experienced project manager who, like CONVIS, is an expert in all phases of project planning, is a reliable guarantor of success. You can rely on us to take care of all areas of activity encompassed by project management. We have a very broad range of specialist knowledge. We can, therefore, not only see the bigger picture but also evaluate what is fuelling it.
CONVIS takes on the project management of construction projects and organisational projects such as, for example, the company-wide adoption of software solutions. It also provides project management for communications and marketing campaigns.
A high degree of transparency over the entire course of the project
We plan thoroughly and we plan ahead. Our maxim is ‘prevention before reaction’. We focus on generating solutions at all times. If issues arise, resolving them is our top priority. We think that an appropriate error management culture is as important as ensuring a high degree of transparency over the entire course of the project. This requires specialist expertise, but also calls for diplomacy. As project managers we resolve conflicts, moderate, unite all parties and, where necessary, we also set clear boundaries.
For each project the commissioning client has a clear objective in mind, but the path towards it is often fraught with obstacles. CONVIS develops a customised strategy for each project. This allows it to succeed in uniting everyone in achieving the same objective. This success is not due to “tearing up” the rulebook on project management, but stems rather from experience, communication and empathy.
CONVIS software tools for efficient project management
CONVIS has developed software tools that operate in Microsoft SharePoint® and Oracle APEX® environments, acting as project management aids. Our clients use and value this IT support because it makes the projects more efficient and transparent. The CONVIS.works software for logging and task control has already won the Innovation Award at the ORACLE Database Awards.
The power station with its capacity of up to 10 Megawatts is situated underground, next to the existing Weser Weir. CONVIS took on the project management and supports the client with the extremely demanding project.
The power station, which was constructed in the tidal reach of the Weser river, sets a benchmark in ecological terms, too. Innovative fish protection measures protect marine wildlife from the passage between the turbines and help them to overcome the weir.

A highly efficient gas and steam turbine plant was built at the Mittelsbüren site in Bremen. The CCP plant is embedded within the municipal utilities sustainability strategy. The sustainability aspects therefore took top priority for the client, in particular achieving climate protection goals.
As the project manager, CONVIS is responsible for ensuring that the project is a success.

The construction of the new music centre in Bochum is a harmonious blend of old and new. This open meeting space provides a hub where the city’s culture and music can come together. The building brings the Bochum Symphony Orchestra, the music school and the city of Bochum’s cultural office headquarters together under one roof. A single venue connects both rehearsals and the event itself.
The budget is strictly capped and, as project manager for the city of Bochum, CONVIS also keeps the costs in mind. The music centre is funded by grants from the North Rhine-Westphalia urban development promotion programme and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Commissioning client: City of Bochum
