Our dedicated Project Teams are prepared to work on challenging construction projects for Steels and Metals Manufacturers. Experienced supervision and project staff assist the owner engineering representatives during project front-end loading to identify and quantify the construction activities and tasks required to fully integrate the new construction into the live operating units. Frequently we provide the owner with labor and cost estimating data to complete the project budget and support the project funding request.
Our planning is deliberate and methodical. We involve knowledgeable, experienced field supervisors to develop labor plans for the work activities, in addition to creating traditional work activity sequence and dependency plans. Our emphasis is to involve the ideas of experienced crafts and field supervisor in a ‘Lean Thinking’ approach to develop smooth field work flow that supports what’s best for the project as a whole, not just what is best for one contractor or one craft.
Actual expended field man-hours are collected and compared to labor plan estimates in our construction-specific fully integrated business system, providing user-friendly earned progress reports, productivity data and cost-at-completion forecasts in near-real time. Valuable and accurate performance data is assessed promptly to improve field plans and adapt quickly to any changing conditions or needs.
