We proactively identify long-lead items and strategize early procurement to ensure project timelines are not hindered.
Our team goes beyond scheduling to uncover ways to improve project deliverables while maintaining quality.
Our clients appreciate not only gaining insights into immediate construction costs but also understanding the long-term impact of these decisions.
Quality Control: Ensuring Excellence at Every Step
At Scherrer Construction, quality isn't just an end goal—it's integrated into every phase.
We take a thorough approach to our work, starting with a careful review of the scope of the project. This helps us to clearly define responsibilities and tasks.
Through open communication about individual scopes, their impact on the project as a whole, and safety concerns, we are able to proactively address any potential issues.
We conduct quality checks throughout the process, from coordinating with different trades to pre-construction meetings, systems start-ups, and staged punch lists. At Scherrer, we believe that every detail is important, ensuring both the design and structural integrity of our work.
Schedule Control: Managing Project Timelines
Creating a thorough project schedule is crucial to ensuring a successful and efficient material installation.
To achieve this, we begin our schedule management process with a master schedule during the design phase, which includes important milestones such as bidding, permitting, and construction commencement.
We then break down this schedule into phases and areas to create a sequential operations plan. We also provide weekly updates to keep track of real-time progress, ensuring transparency and promptly addressing any issues with subcontractor performance.
Additionally, we use our Material Procurement Log to manage supply chain synchronization, ensuring timely delivery of materials for the project.
Risk Management: Proactively Safeguarding Every Project
Scherrer Construction excels in preemptive risk assessment, ensuring every venture is fortified against potential challenges.
By identifying environmental, safety, and logistical risks early on, we guarantee a smooth construction journey, safeguarding investments and ensuring timely, efficient project progression.
