Last week we discussed how important total project coordination is to the success of a project. One key part of that integrated process is turnkey construction, which is the work that begins with setting modular units in place on a jobsite.
Before turnkey even begins however, experienced DeLuxe project managers participate in critical ways from the very inception of the project, long before the first modular unit is delivered to the site – even before modular construction actually begins. These project managers stay involved right through the manufacturing phase, so that things go well later, on site. The managers develop schedules that are fully maintained throughout the project, that clients can literally take to the bank. Our guaranteed pricing is made possible in part by the managers’ skillful, knowledgeable participation.
When modular units reach the jobsite from DeLuxe’s production facility, DeLuxe is there to manage every step up to the turnover of the completed project. (Preliminary site services such as excavation and foundation prep typically are handled by others.) DeLuxe will manage crews that will set the modular units and make them watertight, and establish all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing connections, insuring that the job is done right. At all times, DeLuxe project managers are making sure that every aspect of the work proceeds according to plan. Constant QC monitoring, coupled with continuous open dialogue among all divisions at Deluxe, avoids unwanted surprises. The project concludes with on-site crews completing all fit and finish elements, interior and exterior. The project is then turned over to the new owners for use.
Exerting this level of management over a project is essential to the project’s success, and it allows DeLuxe to insure that a project is finished on time, and on budget. The end result? A building that’s in use in half the time or less compared to conventional construction methods. Finance interest costs are drastically cut. Impossible deadlines (like the start of a new semester or the tourist season) are met.
Ultimately, it comes down to this: Deluxe understands what it takes to finish a project right. We have the established experience, structure and workforce to manage your project from start to finish. Now that’s total project coordination.
