Fairfield Inn & Suites

May's Construction Recap

At Studio PBA, we have created a dedicated construction administration department. This creates a multitude of benefits for our firm. By devoting staff strictly to construction administration (CA), each project undertaken by our firm has a team member with intimate knowledge of current construction practices and methods. It allows for more attention to be paid to each project during construction, subsequently minimizing the need for change orders and troubleshooting. Having a dedicated CA team means that the lessons learned on other projects are implemented into the drawings in real time and we're able to take advantage of active learning on projects. Our firm is able to make this very seamless transition between the production department and CA department by having the production project manager involved throughout the CA process.

Summer of 2018 is poised to be a big one for our CA team.  We currently have over ten projects nearing construction completion and several more are slated to break ground this summer.  Our teams are on site almost weekly monitoring the progress of these projects, gathering great ideas, lessons learned, and photos of the progress.
