A construction project is a balancing act of coordinating mechanical, electrical, and other subcontractors work packages, in a project team environment. PCL works closely with subcontractors early in the construction life cycle to understand how they intend to perform their work, and to develop construction execution plans that emphasize team success.
PCL is a safety leader and has a goal of zero incidents on every project. Everyone works safe on a PCL jobsite. And everyone goes home safe. Subcontractors benefit from PCL’s understanding of, and commitment to, safety management.
Whether it is temporary power, lighting, labor and material logistics, hoisting, overall site logistics, or scheduling, every PCL project is planned and documented with subcontractor input, when possible, prior to subcontractor tendering. This reduces surprises for subcontractors. Good team planning initiates a project community that is highly successful.
Subcontractors benefit from PCL’s commitment to a district quality management program. PCL employees and subcontractors benefit from a thorough knowledge of the drawings, specifications, codes, testing procedures, and applicable standards. Everyone works together using the quality management system to achieve a superior end product.
On many projects, PCL and subcontractors work together to develop 3D models of specific work, and every PCL project has access to software to combine these models to perform clash detection. Starting the coordination process early allows many issues to be resolved before subcontractors encounter them in the field.
PCL provides software for subcontractor collaboration on submittals, RFI, and document control utilizing technology to enable a more efficient workflow for delivery of construction. Utilizing technology to aid construction is a continual endeavor.
