General Contracting

(P4P Construction is a licensed and bonded contractor)

P4P has an advantage over many companies in the industry when it comes to General Contracting due to having a management team with a lifetime of experience in the construction field. P4P’s management team has over 100 years of combined experience and all members started in the trades. We believe that it is not only an advantage to have management that has worked their way up from the trenches but promoting and training from within the company is a part of our culture. A management team that is highly knowledgeable in both the trades and leadership, gives us the ability to form relationships that ensure the values and beliefs of the P4P culture is instilled into our workers, sub-contractors, and clients; as they are an extension of what P4P stands for. P4P has a vast network of suitable partners and suppliers that can complete any project as small as a residential remodel to your companies dream sky rise that can change the horizon of your city.

All Phases Within P4P’s Procedures

All phases within P4P’s procedures can vary depending on the size of the project and
the client’s needs.

Initial Phase

P4P will review the RFP (request for proposal) and all documents pertaining to the scope of work. This could be construction prints, PI&D’s, and material take-off list. We will then perform a feasibility test and get a better understanding of our clients’ needs and budget. Once all aspects of the scope are reviewed and accounted for, P4P will proceed to submit a proposal. Once terms are agreed upon and a contract is in place to proceed, P4P will write a project charter assessing key personnel, project goals, budgets, milestones, and potential risk.

Planning Phase

Planning is one of P4P’s most important attributes to the entire project management process. We firmly believe that the overall planning process is crucial for the success of the project, our team, and our clients. Here are the steps we take.

01-The Scope Plan and Breakdown

P4P will create a timeline of events and milestones to follow. We break down all scopes into more manageable sections applying cost estimates, duration estimates, and material needs.

02-Communication Plan

A communication plan is created for all parties involved. Communication addresses how each scope will be completed, equipment being used, processes involved, and quality standards that need to be adhered to. P4P will implement a meeting schedule and create a framework for all parties involved to avoid any miscommunications.

& Procurement Phase

This stage contains site review, soil test if needed, any environmental challenges that may need to be addressed, and any other site factors that may need to be analyzed before excavating, grading, and soil removal can begin. P4P’s procurement specialist will also begin to seek out quotations for all MTO’S (material take -offs), vessels, equipment, tools, and any other factors that need to be ordered to ensure quality products, cost effectiveness, and overall on time completion of the project.

Mobilization Phase

Depending on the size of the project, budget or plot restraints, and the client’s needs; P4P will implement a site plan to mobilize all key personnel, work areas, and a laydown area for tools and materials. This is where the flow and passageways need to be analyzed for safety and effective production.

Execution Phase

Welcome to kick off! There will normally be a kickoff meeting with all the P4P personnel, clients, sub-contractors, and suppliers. This is to ensure everyone is on the same page. Material handling procedures, safety procedures, jobsite security, and many other factors are addressed.

Performance &
Monitoring Phase

Continued monitoring of any process is a must. P4P will analyze all works and processes to ensure safety is leading the way and schedules are being met. Tracking systems will be in place, bottlenecks will be addressed, and small adjustments to the plan will be made to ensure all the factors fall in line with on time completion and the overall project management plan.

Testing & Commissioning

All tests will be performed on all systems before implementing commissioning features. This can sometimes be done coinciding with the execution phase depending on the system being complete and disassociated with any construction activities on the job. Resistance checks on cabling and electrical, as well as static and hydrotest on duct or piping systems should be completed at this point. Once all systems are tested and certified, dynamic testing begins to ensure all the equipment is operating correctly. Equipment and factors can change based on the project. Depending on turnover or maintenance contracts, performance and environmental testing should be carried out after a set timeframe.

Owner Occupancy

Turnover begins. Our client begins to move in or occupy the building, plant, or residents; whichever it may be. Warranty contracts are than awarded or initiated in which P4P mainly deals with express warranties. P4P Construction likes these written form warranties in their contracts to help guarantee their work, keep satisfied clients, and ensure that the company is maintaining their reputation as leader of the 4P’s.

Closing Phase

All punch list and loose ends are tied up in this phase. P4P wants to make sure that the client is satisfied
and has had every one of their expectations met. P4P normally holds a closeout meeting to share constructive
feedback and what could be addressed on future projects, share all documents for archives, and begin to
prepare a project completion report.
