                                  Key points:

                                  • Client Satisfaction- keeping the client happy is Job One

                                    • Communication communicate with all parties on a daily basis as needed

                                      • Leadership you're the leader of your job, "Lead it"

                                        • Leadership: Provide positive site leadership for the project for all parties involved including: subcontractors, tenants, property managers, consultants, architects, etc. It's your project "Lead it".

                                          • Teamwork: Our primary goals are to make the client happy, do high quality work, complete the project ahead of schedule and try our best to complete the projects under budget. Align your interest and actions with the PGCC team and Owner team.

                                            • Quality Assurance: Make sure all work is done right, good enough for your mother and our client. All work must be completed per the plans, specs, matrixes, city codes, etc. There should be no deviation from the plans / specs unless instructed or approved to do so. All materials used in our work should be submitted and approved by the owner/architect prior to ordering or installing anything.

                                              • Budgets: Project budgets are developed before the projects begin. If there are any issues, they should be raised to your Senior PM (SPM) and/or Project Executive (PE) immediately. SPM's or PE's update the budget variances throughout the project. This variance information should not be released to the client unless prior approval is given by your PE.

                                                • City Inspections: Order and coordinate all city inspections. Try to develop good relationships with your local city inspectors. We should have correction notices only once, if at all, for construction items. PGCC does not want to have multiple issues with the same types of items. Make sure our subs are aware of this expectation.

                                                  • Monthly Draws: PMs are expected to review and approve subcontractor's monthly billing invoices. Once they are reviewed, they should be submitted to the Project Coordinator (PC). All billings and draw paperwork should be reviewed with the PM, PC, SPM and/or PE on a conference call each month prior to submitting the draw package to the owner. PMs are expected to have the site clean and ready for the draw meetings each month. Notice should be given to the property management to gain access to all units or areas of the project being billed for that billing period so the units can be inspected as needed at the draw meetings. For example, if we are billing for roofing work, there should be access to all of these areas at the draw meeting.

                                                    • Punch lists and Close out: All units and buildings should be punched immediately upon completion of the work. Do not want until the end of the project. All work should be walked and punched by PGCC before the owner / architect walks them. Make sure the units are ready to be turned over and completely back punched prior to the tenant moving back in. We do not want to go back into a unit once a tenant has moved back in. Once the punch list has been signed off by the owner rep / property manager, please scan the punch list onto the server and save under the close out and completion folder. All units and buildings should have a completed punch list saved on the server at the end of the project (please see the sample punch list forms under the close out and completion section).

                                                      Weekly Items:

                                                    • Schedules: Responsible for preparing and updating a short schedule and master Microsoft Project schedule each week without exception. The weekly schedule should be sent to the client each week. The master Microsoft Project schedule should be developed and modified before any work actually begins. The short schedules should be provided to the subs each week to ensure that the weekly schedule is being met and so that they know what is expected of them. If you need help with updating your schedule, contact your PE.

                                                    • Weekly Reports and Meetings: Prepare all weekly reports and schedules for your jobs. Be prepared to discuss them at the weekly meetings each week with your owner representative. The weekly report includes your weekly meeting minutes, RFI Log, and Submittal Log.

                                                    • Managing the Manager: Keep good open communication and a good relationship with all property managers. Establish a regular weekly meeting with them to discuss the project and any tenant issues. This should include any maintenance supervisors as well, if possible.

                                                    • Subcontractor Site Coordination: Have weekly coordination meetings with your subs; make sure that all of your subcontractor's supervisor's show up for these meetings. Make sure that all subcontractors are on schedule and call them as needed to reinforce your schedule. "Run the project; do not let the project run you."

                                                    • Weekly Site Safety: You will need to conduct a weekly sub safety meeting as part of your site coordination meetings. Subs should be doing their own tailgate safety meetings each week and turning in a copy of their sign in sheets to you.
