Preparing for Friday's Visitors...

As the end of the week nears, Woody pushes the crews to make advancements to maximize this week's progress. On the surface it's not much of a demand, basically asking crews to speed it up. The challenge is that they have to work better & faster without the slightest sacrifice of QUALITY. The work must be top notch work. Keep in mind at the weekly site meetings held each Friday, we have the opportunity to have our best critics view the progress. Michael Sawyers is an EXCELLENT Project Manager with years of experience. He can spot the slightest deviation from the plans. Add to that the fact that the Area Construction Manager, Jimmy Lopez, that is our customer at this project, is an engineer in his own right. So glossing over problems would never fly with him. Then the partners for this store have several other stores & they have an eye trained to spot anything below the best possible quality. And that's not the end. Don't forget we still have to pass the test with the very highly qualified Fort Worth City inspectors. The framers are busy building the arcade walls, MEPs are progressing on interior, brick masons have made great advances on the exterior, and the utility company is finishing the forming of the storm water inlets. Overall, we believe we are ready for all inspections and visitors tomorrow.
