Strategic Planning

Strategies - Pushing Your Organization in the Right Direction The term strategy, for which strategic planning is named, is a great idea that pushes the organization in the right direction. In essence, strategies describe what you should do to achieve your goals, address your issues, and ultimately achieve your vision. The best way to create strategies is to capitalize on group thinking or brainstorming. As the saying goes, the best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas. These ideas should focus on what an organization needs to do to achieve its goals and ultimately its vision. To add a dose of reality, what is an organization willing to do?

As engineers, perhaps we can relate putting strategies in motion to the laws of physics. Sir Isaac Newton’s First Law is, “An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by an external and unbalanced force.” Likewise, “An object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an external and unbalanced force.” Consequently, if an organization is to change, a net force or strategy must be applied.

Quality

“Say what you do. Do what you say.” Over the years we have all read numerous quotes and clichés about quality. No other quote however, sums up the entire process of quality as succinctly as the one above. The first four words describe the gist of our quality plan. The other four words describe our quality performance.

This brings us to Newton’s Second Law - “The rate of change of momentum acting on a body is directly proportional to the net force acting on it.” In other words, the more deeply an organization is entrenched in its ways, the more force required to change direction.

SBE Certified/ODOT Prequalified R.E. Warner . . . Small Business Enterprise Certified The Cuyahoga County Office of Procurement and Diversity, the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District Office of Contract Compliance and the US Federal Contractor Registration System for Award Management (SAM) have certified R.E. Warner & Associates, Inc. as a Small Business Enterprise in the areas of engineering services and surveying and mapping. It’s tough for a small business to land big contracts. Sometimes it seems as if you have to be one of the big guys to get the big gigs, but you need to get a big gig to be one of the big guys. One way to make

it to the next level is by getting your Small Business Enterprise (SBE) certification. Almost all major corporations and government entities have a goal that a portion of their contracts must be awarded to small or minority owned businesses. Certification takes place on the municipal, county, state and federal levels. Because getting SBE certification can be an intense process, many small businesses won’t go through the effort, making the certification that much more valuable for us. There is a lot of business available at all levels of government, both for contractors and subcontractors. Going after it requires a real commitment. But it’s a commitment that can pay off.

R.E. Warner . . . An ODOT Prequalified Consultant Our firm will be retained on ODOT’s list of active prequalified consultants to provide the following services through February 14, 2014. Our ODOT prequalifications now include: - Roadway - Bicycle Facilities & Enhancement Design, Non-complex and Complex Roadway Design - Safety Studies - Right of Way Plan Development – Limited and Complex - Bridge Design – Level 1 - Environmental Services – Environmental Document Preparation - CE

Promoting Engineering As a Career Path For the past several years, engineers and architects from R.E. Warner have taken time out of their day to speak to the students of Independence High School’s physics class about careers in engineering and architecture. On February 14, Brian Emery, Don Salsbury and Jen Rowles, spoke to Mrs. Jennifer Lewis’ physics class. They began by giving a history about themselves and explained what their jobs entail and how they got to where they are today. They discussed why they chose their career path, how they ended up in the job they are in today, and what they did prior to working at R.E. Warner. Students had many questions about how to be prepared for college, how to be successful in college, how to prepare a

resume, and what important things they should be doing besides going to school, like internships and extracurricular activities. Students informed our speakers of their career ambitions and Brian, Don, and Jen tried to give the students insight into those professions.

“The students really were interested in a broad spectrum of careers, so it was nice to share our knowledge with them, even if it wasn’t in our specific field of engineering,” said Jen Rowles.

Construction Underway

Of Chardon’s New Public Service Facility Ground broke Wednesday March 13, for the new public service facility in Chardon — nearly five years to the day after the old one and its contents went up in flames. A ceremonial dig marked the occasion at 499 N. Hambden St. Along with a multibay building to house vehicles, the facility will include a multidepartment cold storage structure, a barn-style salt and bulk storage building, and a snow storage area. The city budgeted $4.9 million for the project, which will be constructed by Chardon-based Cold Harbor Building Co. at a cost of $4.1 million. Work is to be substantially complete by November 1.

“City staff and a professional design team have dedicated countless hours to the endeavor,” said City Manager Randy Sharpe.

As the design professional, R.E. Warner is proud to have been involved in the programming, schematic design, design development, construction documents and construction administration services for the new service department facility.


Risk Management

What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You On every project, there’s always the possibility that unexpected conditions will be encountered on the site. No matter how much research, exploration or testing has been conducted, we simply can’t know everything about a site or structure prior to design and construction. There may be man-made or natural subsurface conditions such as buried utilities or changed soil conditions that investigations have failed to disclose. An existing structure may have hidden aspects such as ductwork, wiring or the presence of asbestos. As the project progresses, discovery of these issues can adversely affect the cost and schedule of a project. To help protect everyone against these risks, a multi-pronged approach is required.

• Have a candid and open discussion with all stakeholders about the likelihood of encountering unforeseen conditions. • Agree to adequate research, testing, scanning and geotechnical investigations before beginning the design phase. • Establish a contingency in the Owner’s budget reflective of the unknown conditions. • Include a Differing Site Conditions (DSC) clause in the construction contract to address the discovery of unknown conditions. Remember, most construction claims arise before the structure ever comes out of the ground. What you don’t know can hurt you.

Project Management I’ll Toast to That!

As engineers, we have all too often seen project kick-off meetings begin and end with the technical details of the project. As a result, we overlook or minimize the big picture. What are the goals and objectives of the project? At R.E.Warner, we encourage our project managers to hold an open discussion with our clients before we ever put pencil to paper. When the project is complete, what must occur for both of us to raise our glasses and toast to success? Once that list is agreed upon, what can prevent us from achieving those goals? From there, the project manager can not only prepare his or her project plan, but also a contingency plan for the inevitable obstacles that will arise.

Project Delivery

Best Practices Guide Coming for BIM Engineering News Record reported that The American Institute of Steel Construction is planning to develop a best practices guide for the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM). AISC is attempting to standardize BIM use in a way that is cohesive and consistent with the checks and balances currently provided in its Code of Standard Practices for steel buildings and bridges. The guide will have input from BIM users including engineers, architects, detailers, fabricators, erectors and contractors.

Warner will be combining the power of Microsoft Project and Deltek Vision to plan, monitor and control the engineering to install a new forge shop and 10,000 ton press. With the press on order and scheduled for 2014 delivery, this large and complex engineering project will require the close coordination and scheduling of nearly 17,000 staff hours over the next 12 months. By breaking the project down into phases and phases into major tasks, tasks and subtasks, our project scheduler, Craig McGuiness, will fully utilize Microsoft Project to plan, schedule, and coordinate hundreds of tasks while Deltek Vision will be used to monitor and control the budget.

Market Trends

Forget the Drama - Shale Gas is a Thriller Upstream - Down Stream - Mid Stream - Everyone’s talking about shale gas - and rightfully so. Although the real action in shale is just starting, Ohio manufacturers are already selling into shale and R.E. Warner is right alongside them. The amount of pipeline and processing work planned is staggering. And so is the manufacturing to support it. For example, the steel and tube industry is gearing up to provide products to support the shale industry. Timken has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into its Canton steel and tube mills and R.E. Warner was the consulting engineer for the $36 million forge press facility to manufacture quality steel for Timken’s products. Other mills such as USS Tubular in Lorain, North American Forgemasters and V&M in Youngstown are also gearing up to increase their production of steel and tubes. It’s clear that the rebirth of Ohio’s manufacturing industry is tied to America’s energy industry and the results are thrilling.

Toys for Tots R.E. Warner employees brightened up the holiday for many children in Northeast Ohio through their generous donations to the Toys for Tots campaign. Employees had a friendly “fill the box” competition among the various departments that raised more than $1,600 worth of toys, books, and games. “That’s $138 more than we collected last year and twice the amount we collected for the whole campaign when we started it six years ago,” said Janet O’Brien, chairperson of the annual campaign.

critical resources to local hunger relief organizations in 21 counties in Northeast and North Central Ohio.

Joining over 500 local companies and organizations, R.E. Warner is once again hosting an internal employee food and funds drive to support the 2013 Harvest for Hunger Campaign. Harvest for Hunger – one of the largest annual, community-wide food and funds drives in the nation – provides

Last year, businesses, supermarkets, schools and individuals from across the region to contribute enough resources to provide over 15 million meals. Unfortunately, the number of people turning to hunger centers for emergency food continues to rise. Harvest for Hunger is an important source of

support for these hunger centers and the hundreds of thousands of people turning to them for help. This year’s goal is to provide enough food for 16 million meals. Fundraising at R.E. Warner has included Jeans for a Cause where for a donation, employees can wear jeans on Fridays, March Madness brackets with a portion of proceeds donated to Harvest for Hunger, a bake sale and silent pie auction, candy sale and a vacation day raffle. The need is great, but with our support we can make a difference!

Mathcounts Competition Mathcounts is a math competition for Middle School students -Grades 7 and 8 sponsored by the National Society of Professional Engineers.
