Our Insurance, Safety & Risk Management Cal Blu fully recognizes the importance of safety. Safety is a value, not a priority that changes with time.

We have high internal standards and expect our clients, project partners, subcontractors and vendors to share this same important value. CAL BLU recognizes that there are no shortcuts when it comes to ensuring safety. Continuing education and training, experienced supervision, and a company culture dedicated to the proper execution of all procedures are all essential to the process. CAL BLU is also committed to making sure all elements of risk mitigation are in place before work commences at a project site. Commercial auto, workman’s compensation and general liability insurance is carried and held current for all personnel on every project.

QUALITY CONTROL PROCESS CAL BLU’s quality control culture begins immediately when a new employee is hired, irrespective of their position. Each individual undergoes an orientation and training process with a current experienced employee, to ensure awareness of all company procedures, policies and high standards. This culture is consistently passed along to the entire staff. CAL BLU knows and understands that to be successful in this industry, its performance and quality of workmanship are the key criteria measured. The senior management team is firmly committed to constantly improving the company’s ability to provide a first class service to each of its clients. Additionally, as part of the company’s ongoing project-specific quality control program, CAL BLU equips all of its field superintendents with technology items including cameras, smartphones, and internet-connected laptop computers. This facilitates the senior management team’s ability to assist in real-time with any issue that may occur, by providing the right guidance and supplementing decision-making ability to achieve a client’s best interests. All projects are inspected by an independent quality control team throughout the project lifecycle, and monitored carefully to make sure quality of workmanship meets CAL BLUs rigorous standards. Should a subcontractor ever fail to carry out their scope of work to those standards, they are counseled and their work will be corrected. If the subcontractor does not comply with those standards, they will be removed from the company’s database and no longer considered for future engagements.

PROJECT DOCUMENTATION PROCESS CAL BLU follows a strict protocol of standardized general contracting practices for developing and providing project documentation, budgets and reports. Project documentation and budgets are derived initially from a client’s request for bid, along with any subcontractor bids and an initial statement of values (SOV). Once a contract is awarded by a client, we re-verify and cross-reference all relevant information against the SOV for accuracy, and generate the initial timeline and budget. The project is then given an internal project number and set up in our Timberline software system using the initial SOV and executed contract copy. The pertinent information input into our system includes: client name and address, project name and address, client project number, client project manager, architect name and address, and an SOV which is individually cost coded. Once work commences, the Superintendent provides a daily report along with photos from the job. Any unforeseen site conditions that exist will be addressed immediately by the CAL BLU Project Manager and the owner’s representative. The Project Manager reviews daily reports and safety reports, along with subcontractor sign-in sheet tracking for all subcontractors on site; they additionally oversee the execution of the schedule. From the superintendent’s daily reports, the Project Manager prepares a weekly job progress report which includes photos, a change order log, an RFI log and an updated schedule. It is CAL BLU’s policy to provide its clients with the appropriate project closeout documents at the time of turn over. Included in this package will be warranty letters not only from CAL BLU itself, but each primary subcontractor that was under contract with the company. In addition to the warranty letters, the necessary O&M manuals and As-Built drawings are included. We provide these documents for both the Client as well as the Property Owner for any warranty issues that may occur. Final billing submittals are then processed, along with any additional close out information, within 30 days of project completion.
