Industry Game-Changers

Typically, disruption in the workplace is counterintuitive to productivity. But in terms of creating innovative ways to manage people, processes and technology, the concept of “disruption” isn’t such a bad thing for the construction industry. Change is stirring whether contractors are ready for it or not, and firms that have adopted new ways of managing scheduling and workflows are seeing stellar results—earning the accolades of repeat projects for key clients, as well as happy project partners.

PMIS: Revolutionizing Owner-Contractor Relationships

Facility owners have historically been left out of the construction project management technology game, as most platforms and tools focused on innovations for contractors, architects and engineers.

Just take it from McGann Construction and Trunnell Electric, two contractors that have built a reputation for consistently producing high-quality work. 

Partnering With Distributors for Efficiency

Contractors don’t need to look far to find organizations that specialize in moving materials. Distributors and suppliers, and even manufacturers, can be considered part of the food chain.

What’s the Most Crucial Strategy or Tool for Keeping a Project on or Under Budget?

To keep projects on or under budget, we consult with the client and coordinate plans, design specifications, phasing and operation methods with the design team and the state and local authorities. All of this is done during preconstruction.
