Why Nash?

The Nash Project Approach

William R. Nash utilizes a uniform technique of Project Management with proven effectiveness in controlling the three factors vital to a successful project. The basic elements of this process are constant monitoring of: expended costs and manpower productivity against estimated values, schedule management, and the quality of our workmanship. In addition we have invested in Best in Class software tools to help us control productivity, schedules, and construction budgets on all of our projects. Our project managers are trained on using these tools and we follow a disciplined approach whereby our team meets with Senior executives on a regular basis to review project status approach to ensure a successful project outcome.

Project Coordination Procedures

At contract award, Nash’s Project Manager will meet with the client representative to review the scope of work and develop the project coordination procedures. These procedures will define items such as document distribution, frequency of coordination meetings, and will establish the lines of communication required for the successful completion of the project. The Project Manager will be responsible for handling all financial, contractual matter, purchasing, expediting, and scheduling construction. In the performance of these duties, the Project Manager may elect to delegate certain functions to specific departments; I.e. engineering, prefabrication, estimating, and/or purchasing but still maintains overall responsibility for the project. The Project Manager remains with each project from inception to completion; providing maximum focus throughout the design and construction of each facility.

Project Team Approach

Nash’s Project Management process includes the establishment of a team to suit the complexity of each project. The roles included within the Project Management Team are purchasing, accounting, cost analysis, planning, scheduling, and construction. Each team member is a specialist and well versed within their discipline. Nash prides itself in the quality of workmanship found within each Project Management team. A group of seasoned and experienced personnel is made available to the project for its duration.

As the Mechanical Contractor on design assist projects, Nash offers a full complement of pre-construction services during the design phase. Proper utilization of these contractor related activities (I.e. cost estimates, scheduling, and constructability reviews) assures the client that their facility will be constructed in the most economical and efficient manner. All of these tasks require a detailed analysis concerning the key parts of the design and serve to identify potential long lead purchases which must be handled early in the construction phase.

The technique proven to be most effective within The Nash organization is what we like to call our “Stand-Alone” policy. This strategy calls for the establishment of a management team, which is specifically created to satisfy the needs of each individual project. Once the team has been created, Nash’s Project Manager and Project Superintendent plan and schedule the job accordingly. The planning efforts determines task precedence. It’s then decided what tools, equipment, materials, and labor is required to carry out the job competently.

Once the above mentioned is established, scheduling begins. Scheduling is the act of translating plans into a timetable and once the schedule has been formulated, the impact of changes can be evaluated and informed decisions can be made. The schedule is updated on a monthly basis in order to ascertain project status and analyze future manpower and equipment. The successful execution of major construction projects is hinged upon the ability to secure experienced supervisors, skilled workers, and helpers.

Our program of evaluating, hiring, training, and motivating crafts persons is as important as planning and scheduling. Initially, project hiring is obtained through the Superintendent’s and Foreman’s recommendations. Additional personnel are recruited through local contractor associations, state employment commissions, job fairs and advertisements. Resumes for each specific Nash Project Team will be furnished upon request.
