The number one key to success in managing a construction project, of any kind is not the materials used, not the budget in place, or even the act of actually putting up the structure but listening. This becomes even more important when you venture into a project that is based on a Construction Management or Design/Build approach. These projects place a greater emphasis on the leadership and direction provided by the General Contractor than a simple traditional project. Clients place their dreams in the hands of their GC and expect success. We have a solid track record on these methods in our 34 years of existence but we also have learned some lessons we think could be useful if you are considering them for your next build! Specifically, four skills are paramount when entering a CM/DB Leadership Role:

There’s a chill in the air (most days at least!) so it’s hard to focus on anything related to our projects aside from keeping the job sites warm & working and forecasting the snow potential, but this is actually a great time to start thinking about the things you want to accomplish during the summer. That’s right, I said summer. Specifically if you are in an educational environment you know that often the summer provides your only window of time to make some major improvements while your campus population is lower than normal. Perfect timing, no? Well the other factor is that this wonderful window is small, like barely a month or two at times small. So what are you to do if you have objectives to meet?

There are many tales told about the search for the perfect fit. Goldilocks was trying to find the bed that was just right. The Prince traveled the country side with a glass slipper in his hand looking for the foot of his true love, Cinderella. Much in the same way, a property or business owner is looking for the right General Contractor to complete their project. They cannot just put the names of all local GCs into a hat and pick one randomly, and achieve true success. They cannot just look at one factor, say bottom line bid cost or project resume, and know they have found “the one.” And if you can believe it, General Contractors have to be just as vigilant in their search for the right clients. I know, I know. It sounds preposterous to think that a GC might pass up work or pass up money they are offered in pursuit of the right fit with a client but it is a tact that the most successful will surely employ. The idea here is that regardless of what side of the table you sit, there are going to be key factors that help you determine if you have found the proper business relationship to ensure the success of your project. What are those factors? New England Construction client and founding partner of the Peregrine Group LLC, Jordan Stone and NEC President, Matt Sluter were happy to share their perspectives on this topic.

When it comes to metaphors, never has the phrase “diving into the deep end of the pool” been more appropriate than in the case of our construction of the Pods Swimming Facility in East Providence, RI. Pods is a collaborative design/build project that has run deep at New England Construction for several years now and we are very proud to see this one of a kind place open and serving the local community. I sat down with the Project Manager, Derek Venticinque, and the Superintendent, Dave Marchand, who worked on Pods to get their perspective on the project’s unique nature, the challenges they encountered along the way and their thoughts now that the project is over.

Well, it’s finally junior year and we are approaching the finish line of the summer. Only a couple more weeks left to learn all I can and help as much as I can. My constantly changing duties at New England Construction continue to be my summer theme.

July has come and gone and August is here. The bulk of the summer has passed and as time is winding down you start planning and thinking about what is the next step in your future. Most people going into junior year shift their focus more on life after school. Thoughts of jobs location and what the plan is after college becomes increasingly commonplace as the year winds on. Here at New England Construction I can see the finish line. With a little more than a month till classes resume, the last quarter is here.

When sophomore year starts the training wheels come off. Expectations and responsibilities are high and the pressure is on. Sophomore year classes no longer give you the benefit of the doubt, or let you “settle in.” Ability has increased, therefore the responsibilities have increased as well. As a sophomore you hit the ground running and you use the knowledge you gained freshman year and build on it.
