project management

P

re-Planning an installation is a critical activity which requires the project manager to consider building security issues, elevator use and availability, available receiving and staging areas,

man hours to complete on-time, location of power and data feeds, timing with other trades and many other issues. All these factors must be considered and are factored into our installation cost. Whether shown as a line item or hidden in the price of the furniture, the installation cost is there somewhere.

J

ob Site Conditions are usually the responsibility of your general

contractor. If the project falls behind schedule it is the GC’s job to get things back on track. The painters can’t come in before the dry wall crews and the dry wall crews can’t begin before the framing is complete, and so on. Any delay on any phase of a project pushes back all the work to be completed.

orkscapes recognizes the need for quality installation services. That’s why we are proud to provide our clients with installation personnel that are employees certified by Workscapes. We can control the quality of the individual from attitude to knowledge and skill. From this foundation of quality personnel we add proven processes that guarantee an excellent finished installation.

S B

upervisor is the designated on-site leader for all furniture installation personnel. He is responsible for building and laying out the furniture as graphically depicted on the installation drawing. uild as Drawn is a term used to describe the finished work of the installation crew. All price quotations were

based on the number of hours to build and layout the furniture as shown on the installation drawing.

C

hange Orders are required to do any work not in the original scope of the installation quotation. This could be additional work not part of the original work order or a request to change the build as drawn specification to some other variation. Generally, all changes to the scope of work are billable at the time and materials rate. Completion of change order work is based on crew availability and may require rescheduling.
