Powers & Sons Construction would like to congratulate the Culver’s Project Team for achieving a zero punch-list (Z-P.R.I.D.E.) on the recent Culver’s Restaurant Joliet project. This new 4,323-square-foot restaurant is the first Culver’s Powers & Sons has constructed. The project was completed ahead of schedule, in under three months, and within the budget.
While the project was a success, the project team faced some challenges such as coordinating permanent power and natural gas as well as handling the vast amount of inspections required by the City of Joliet. To ensure the success of the project, the Powers & Sons team worked closely with the Owner, the city and subcontractors. Weekly jobsite visits by the project manager and close inspections by superintendent to make sure all installed work was in compliance with contract documents, enabled the team to achieve a zero punch-list at the project’s closeout.
Z-P.R.I.D.E. is the Powers & Sons’ acronym defined by the words Zero Punch-list Requires Individual Daily Effort. Our goal is to provide every project the highest quality product, on time and within budget. Our superintendents punch the job as they go, ensuring the quickest turn around at the end of the project. We seek to eliminate punch-list items in order to allow the owner to use the completed project as quickly as possible. All team members, as well as the owner and subcontractors, are kept updated on the progress of the project through updated schedules and meetings. This constant flow of information allows all team members to participate and anticipate, heading off potential problems. While the achievement of perfection may sometimes be beyond our reach, it is something we constantly strive for.
Congratulations to Dan O’Laughlin (Project Executive), Rob Kennedy (Project Manager), Jeremy Wilson (Superintendent), Robert Wade (Laborer), and Tamara Wright (PM Assistant) for their daily effort to ensure the quality and workmanship on this project was at the highest standard.
