At Cornerstone, we feel the pre-planning phase is the most critical stage of a project. Pre-planning includes the work that takes place before Cornerstone arrives on the jobsite. This period of time is when our project manager and superintendent fine tune the budget, schedule, sequencing, manpower and execution of a job. A project’s greatest opportunity to succeed is established during this phase. It is also the time when we work closely with our customer’s construction team to formulate a specific strategy to execute work that meets the requirements of the job, while being on schedule and on budget.
Effective project management provides Cornerstone Forming the opportunity to set itself apart from other formwork organizations. We assign the same person responsible for work estimation to the role of project manager in order to ensure continuity throughout the bidding, pre-planning and execution phases of a project. By using the same person for these roles, a full understanding of our customer’s needs is established. This practice also eliminates gaps in the scope of work and results in successful job completion.
