Full House at McDonald's Construction Site

Today started with Rick Mathews inspecting the site. Rick is the McDonald's Reg Construction Manager overlooking this project. He & Woody walked the site and addressed several items that were in question. Michael Sawyers, our Parkway Project Manager, was also onsite for the weekly site inspection. Overall, it was determined that work is progressing on schedule and Parkway & McDonald's managers both were pleased overall. The real surprise came later in the day with a visit from Joe Collins from McDonald's headquarters. It was a real pleasure to have him visit our jobsite. As far as the work for the day, that was busy, too. The tile crew is in the kitchen doing wall & floor. The interior frame crew was finishing hard lid over the service counter & installed more ceiling grid. The masons continued with bricking on east side of building. The concrete crew drilled for the light poles and directional signs. Electricians worked on drive thru and light poles and continue pulling wire inside the building. Best word to describe today would have to be PRODUCTIVE. At this stage of the construction the advancements are more visual and the crews tend to work longer hours in order to meet the turn over deadline.
