KP Meiring Company serves as a full service General Contractor when called to do so. Many governmental and private projects still are put out for public bid. KP Meiring Company actively participates in this process and works well in this world.
After 45 years, we have cemented the fundamental skill sets needed to thrive in these markets, all while, continuously evolving along with the latest in technology and means-and-methods.
Our construction process emphasizes:
Procurement & Project Schedule
The procurement process is critical to the project and must be factored into the schedule. This is why K.P. Meiring begins the procurement process as early as possible.
We utilize intuitive and reliable cloud-based information systems to expeditiously facilitate the massive amounts of essential details contained within the submittals and shop drawings. The reliability and efficiency of the cloud has vastly improved the speed and accuracy of the procurement phase - allowing for greater focus on safety, quality and schedule.
The development of initial schedules are prepared by K.P. Meiring Company with input from the owner, architect and subcontractors. After consideration of the input from the entire project team, the Project schedule is released.
The importance of the Project schedule cannot be overstated, as it is an overall summary of milestones that must be reached in order to meet the completion deadline. However, our experience has taught us that smaller, detailed schedules are an essential supplement to the Project schedule in order to meeting each milestone.
We refer to these smaller schedules as "micro" schedules. Micro schedules detail all of the sequential subtasks that must be completed - on time - in order to meet each Project milestone. Simply put, the Project schedule is the road map, the micro-schedules are all the road signs, in between each interchange, ensuring we remain on our travel plan.
On-Site Project Management
Due to our focus on early procurement, and well-developed Project scheduling, K.P. Meiring's project manager is able to focus on the daily implementation of all of the preceding project planning.
As the project approaches major milestones this means one or more subcontractors are nearing completion of their scope and the next phase of subcontractors mobilize. K.P. Meiring is proactive in facilitating these transitions by holding coordination meetings prior to the demobilizing and mobilizing of subcontractors. in order to methodically execute major milestones and or transitions from one phase or another. Examples of situations requiring a coordination meeting are, pre-pour conference before any major concrete operation (footings, slabs, site concrete), pre-roofing conference)
Quality Control is managed on a daily basis with “quality control lists” which are maintained in digital format for electronic distribution and tracking. KP Meiring Company strives to at all times maintain equilibrium between Cost, Time and Quality.
