Project Management and Site Supervision
Principal Builders Solutions Inc. assigns a project manager, field superintendent, engineer and other staff members as required to effectively manage the construction process. The project manager is responsible for running the project and taking care of all administrative details and required documentation. The field superintendent is in charge of coordinating all field activities, subcontractors and vendors. Along with the site safety director, the field superintendent also handles the quality assurance program and safety program. That includes weekly subcontractor meetings to discuss the schedule and issues pertaining to trades, weekly toolbox safety meetings to discuss safety issues and topics, and weekly project meetings to review, minutes, schedule, changes, submittals, RFI’s, important issues, applications for payments and change orders.
Commissioning & Project Closeout
One of the most critical stages of the construction process is the commissioning and closeout of the project. During this phase of construction, we will coordinate:
We also complete all punch list items, obtain as-built documents from subcontractors, and obtain owner’s operations and maintenance manuals
Site Logistics, Safety & Work Plan
Principal Builders Solutions Inc. defines the logistical requirements for the construction process, such as areas for deliveries, placement of barricades (if required), and hours of operation. We also develop a site-specific safety plan that will be enforced throughout the entire building process.
We apply for and obtain all required permits from the authorities having jurisdiction over the project. Furthermore, we help ensure that all subcontractors do likewise. We also take care of the details, like providing copies of all of this documentation to the owner and posting any required notices at the jobsite.
During the construction of any project, the coordination of the trades is an integral part of the process, especially with respect to the mechanical and electrical trades. At Principal Builders Solutions Inc. we perform the due diligence to ascertain dimensional information, and then document our findings in the plan to install the components of each of the trades.
Shop Drawings and Submittals
We start by preparing a preliminary submittal log consisting of all the required shop drawings, submittals and mock-ups with an anticipated submission date and an anticipated review period. We pride ourselves on reviewing all submissions prior to submitting them to the design professionals for their approval.
Reporting and Cost Control
During the construction process, we provide up-to-date information with respect to any changes. Typically, at the weekly meetings, we distribute a log that’s reviewed by the project design professionals for their approval.
Applications for Payment
We prepare a detailed schedule of values on the AIA G702 and G703 or required forms for team review and approval. From the approved format, we requisition at the intervals agreed upon. Once the requisition has been approved, we issue the requested number of applications for payment.
Final Inspections and Occupancy Permit
Principal Builders Solutions Inc. assists in the coordination of all final inspections. We then secure all test reports or certifications, final affidavits and field inspection reports for submission to obtain the Certificate of Occupancy.
At the agreed-upon intervals, we submit reports on the status of all costs for the project, including changes, projected costs, and proposed changes, to determine the anticipated total project costs.
