Bill Bryant & Associates maintains and enforces a written safety program in order to maintain controls that ensure the highest standards on the job site and in the finished product. Subcontractors are also required to submit their written safety plans before the pre-construction meeting commences.
Proactive project management helps us to identify scheduling challenges and find solutions ahead of the curve. We conduct pre-construction meetings and site visits with subcontractors and materials vendors inviting input and ideas to establish an accurate comprehensive project schedule. This built-in project process ensures that we reach our mutual budget and deadline goals. As the management team, we take a leadership role in monitoring and maintaining the schedule throughout the project. Utilizing Microsoft Project software we create a schedule that identifies all activities, durations and verifies critical shop drawings and submittals for procuring long lead items. Major activities are broken down into smaller tasks that are monitored daily by the job superintendent and updated weekly.
Subcontractor Qualification and Selection
All subcontractors are pre-qualified prior to the bidding process utilizing a written application that requires information about their company, copies of licenses, list of jurisdictions in which they can legally do business, related work experience, bonding capacity, financial statements and trade, architectural and bank references. Comprehensive instructions are prepared for bidders as part of the construction documents including a complete set of blueprints, specifications, cut sheets, diagrams and clearly delineated instructions. With a clear understanding of the scope of work, the final AIA agreement with each contractor includes clearly defined responsibilities of their trade as defined in the plans, specifications and instructions to bidders.
