Operational Design

Construction companies that have grown organically often become more disorganized as people are added. With more projects and clients, staff are often added to handle the increased workload, but the company often doesn’t take time to ensure that new employees understand all of the responsibilities of their role, or how tasks are supposed to be accomplished.  Many times, they are left to ‘work it out on their own’ or wind up doing things the way they did them for a previous employer. This can lead to inefficiency, confusion and even lost profits

As experienced construction management consultants, we have developed a systematic and comprehensive approach that begins by identifying inefficiencies that exist within our clients’ organizations. We then help clients define the roles & responsibilities in their organization and align these with optimized business processes to create a complete system to operate their business.

In order to operate successfully and profitably, the best companies find ways to standardize, systemize, and automate as many processes as possible.

Profitability is directly related to repeatability: getting everyone in the organization operating the same way. When everyone is aligned and operating in unison, then it becomes easier to add people (superintendents, project managers, estimators, accountants, administrators) and achieve consistent and repeatable results. By getting everyone aligned and operating from the same model of processes and systems, the business becomes more efficient and easier for owners to manage.
