Integrity Construction Consulting, Inc. (ICC) will continue to play a lead role during the construction phase. During this phase, we will:
- Create the job schedule
- Provide cost control
- Project phase management
- Oversee project safety
- Provide quality control throughout project duration
- Change Order Control
An essential management tool of any construction project is the job schedule. The accuracy and management of the job schedule determines both the pulse and vitality of the project. ICC follows these prime objectives of the project scheduling system.
- Identifying a method of achieving objectives by developing a flow of work.
- Conveying said flow of work the entire project team
- Monitoring and updating the schedule as necessary to achieve objectives
Once the flow of work is developed, we further break it down into three different schedules:
- Master Schedule – usually done in a simple bar chart form providing a “big picture” look at the total project and forms the basis for subsequent scheduling.
- Detailed Trade Schedule – provides a 5-day, 10-day or 30-day breakdown of all the required upcoming trade tasks in efforts to provide the job site staff a “look ahead”.
After the value of the project has been identified and the owner has accepted the estimate, ICC will monitor construction costs versus the approved estimate. From this point, all funds will be carefully and continuously compared to the approved estimate, which will be communicated between ICC and the owner.
Project Phase Management
ICC’s key staff will manage and supervise all construction phases in order to complete the project within budget, on schedule and in conformance with all contract requirements.
The Project Manager – will create and maintain a complete project file of all documents, correspondence, engineering records, drawings, reports, photographs and permits. They will also act as liaison between prime contractors, architects and owner, and be responsible tor scheduling, conduct owner, architect and contractor’s meetings and enforce all quality control guidelines and safety procedures.
The Project Superintendent – will monitor the construction schedule, coordinate and monitor field construction tasks and conduct Subcontractors meetings to control the supply and utilization of manpower, materials and equipment.
ICC’s Company Safety Program and our Project Safety Program are both recognized by every local governing body that we operate in as a most comprehensive and effective control program, which has led to our successful track record and reputation for conscious compliance with the Occupation Safety and Health Administration and all other Federal, State and local codes and regulations.
We will customize a safety program for each client project and will closely monitor all phases of construction for the safety and health of all project employees and the protection of all property
ICC’s Quality Control Program starts with the design stage and continues throughout the entire duration of the project. The Project Manager will work closely with the owner, architect and consultants to review design features in efforts to eliminate potential problems. Upon design review, a thorough review of contractor drawings by the engineering staff to assure that the trade contractor’s design conforms to the contract requirements.
After drawings have been approved, the Superintendent carefully reviews these items with the trade contractors to assure they have a complete understanding of the installation techniques, quality control standards etc. The Project Manager will also oversee the inspection of shop fabrication and field installation, which is carried out by the Superintendent for architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical trades.
Material testing for both plant and field is coordinated and supervised by our staff. The actual testing is generally purchased on a subcontract basis from a local testing organization. Field inspections, preparation of punch lists and the expediting of completed on such lists also is performed by the Project Manager.
We at ICC believe that our reputation for first quality workmanship and preferred builder attests to the capabilities of our staff to provide excellent quality control, and second to none customer service.
