how we get it done right▪
Catcord Construction manages its projects with excellent efficiency by utilizing the tools and professionalism of a large company, but with the personalized approach of a small firm. Our training and experience has given us many instruments to keep track of all facets of a construction project. From the moment a project comes into our office, a process begins that is second to none in the industry. Tools such as reports and logs are updated daily and distributed to the project team allowing for open and constant communication to ensure all items are addressed at the appropriate time. The major benefits of these processes save our clients effort, time and money. Much time and attention is put into providing these services and because of that, the benefit to our clients is priceless.
Catcord Construction’s number one goal on site is the safety of its employees, vendors, clients and general public. All of our staff is well trained in this arena and are expected to keep a safe worksite. Catcord Construction is committed to promoting and maintaining a safe working environment at all of its projects, and requires all subcontractors and/or vendors to comply fully with the safety requirements referenced by the Contract Documents. To this end, we require all subcontractors and/or vendors whose work involves field labor, to enter into a commitment to comply with all safety regulations at the project, as well as certain other safety standards that we set forth in our Subcontractor Safety Requirements Program.
Our project superintendents, or designated safety supervisor for this project, will be periodically conducting safety-related inspections. Violations to either Catcord Construction’s Safety Program, or to OSHA related standards, will be remedied immediately. Weekly toolbox safety meetings will be held by our superintendent, and attendance by all contractors is mandatory. In the event that assistance is needed in developing a contractor’s site Safety program, our Safety officer will assist contractors in any way we can. We earnestly solicit all our subs cooperation in this regard, and are available to them and their employees in order that safety awareness and compliance be established throughout joint efforts.
