Cost Monitoring Systems
Materials ExpeditingFrom the outset of your project, Williams Development & Construction, Inc. will meet with all of the project material suppliers, vendors, and subcontractors to identify the delivery lead times for all materials. Williams Development & Construction, Inc. will develop a detailed prioritized list needed to expedite deliveries, including dates by which information on materials must be submitted to the architect and engineers for review, and dates by which items must be manufactured, shipped and arrive at the job. This data will be incorporated into a submittal log, which will be distributed each week to the client, the architect, the engineers, and the subcontractors to track all progress and highlight problem areas, bottlenecks, and potential late deliveries.
In-house computer programs track every entry made into the submittal log. If a material supplier or subcontractor is late in making a material or detailing submittal to the project design team, Williams Development & Construction, Inc. will flag that specific item and the Williams Development & Construction, Inc. Project Manager will immediately contact the party responsible for the submittal to get the submittal into the system and prevent any delay to the project.
Williams Development & Construction, Inc.'s system also tracks how much time the architect and engineers spend on reviewing submittals. If for any reason a submittal is taking too long for architectural or engineering review based on the time frame required by the project, the Williams Development & Construction, Inc. Project Manager will immediately contact the appropriate design professional to discern if a problem exists and to help expedite the solution.
Williams Development & Construction, Inc. formally documents all inquiries for clarification from the design team with a Request for Information form letter. This system prevents confusion and crystallizes any points of ambiguity. The result is an end product built in accordance with the architect's original vision and the engineer's intended exactness.
