Relying heavily on past experience, McDonald Bros. Construction has developed a quality control system in the form of a master punch list. Each stage of the project is reviewed and compared to the master list to ensure compliance with the design, construction documentation and industry standards.
Scheduling of any project is critical for the success of the assignment and must include all phases of design, approvals and construction. The scheduling interface and dynamic features of this software allows us to itemize and track all project related activities and milestones from design to occupancy. Work is further divided into sub-categories to delineate what level of commitment each team member has at each stage. Schedule progress is updated regularly outlining and redefining the critical path of activities, enabling our Project Managers and Coordinators to anticipate and plan for contingencies and changes.
