PAUL HAY Capital Projects [PHCP] is a partnership founded in January 1998 under the business name "Paul Hay, CADD Consultant" [PH-CADD Consultant for short]. From inception, project management and computer-aided architectural design [CAAD] were offered mainly to government and educational institutions, through private architectural firms. To a lesser degree, services also included procurement, assembly and installation of computer-aided design and draughting (CADD) systems.
In March 2001, the name was changed to PAUL HAY Capital Projects [PHCP] in order to focus on project management, as a mainstay. " CADD Consultants" was dropped from our name as a consequence of technological developments deemed more relivant to project management, i.e. (a) increasing integration of communication technologies into CAD software, (b) emergence of Collaborative Computing, (c) increasing power of main-stream desktop computers, and (d) adaptation of CAD to Personal Digital Assistants [PDA].
In October 2001, most information technology services, including CAAD services, were transferred to a new subsidiary Digital Design. CAAD software sales were transferred to Digital Design on March 2003; and in January 2004, Karlene Hay was admitted as a PHCP partner
Currently, we provide strategic project management and planning services to governments, as well as private architectural firms and property owners; technology services and sales only being offered to private architects within Jamaica, though steps are being taken to extend sales into the wider Caribbean. For 2002, 82% of our gross income was derived from project management and facility planning; technology services and sales accounting for 10% & 8% respectively.
