Do COVID-19 precautions have you down? Feeling like Groundhog Day with the same zoom calls, same view out the window, same pants since last week? With limited distractions to break up our routines, it can get repetitive. However, we urge you to remain diligent as you focus on your safety and health. Here is how we are continuing to stay safe.
During this time of the year, everybody is thinking about a change – or resolutions – as we head into a new year.
Mitch Lapin, President of Fortney & Weygandt, Inc was featured in a recent issue of Commercial Construction and Renovation magazine along with one of current senior living projects.
During 2019 and continuing into 2020, our Program Management Team completed 8 programs that included 231 locations across 19 states. A majority of the programs were retail, convenience stores, dental offices and exercise studios. The project scopes included refreshes, store within a store, additions and build-outs. Fortney & Weygandt Rollout Program Management excels at planning and coordinating the entire process from start to finish in order to deliver a quality project within budget.
Complete project management encompasses:
Single source responsibility and accountability
One Fortney & Weygandt Rollout Program Management employee will be assigned to your project as the main point of contact. This Project Manager will not only oversee the project but will also be a liaison with vendors and the Fortney & Weygandt Rollout Program Management staff.
We know the process of renovating can be stressful due to the potential of lost revenue because of downtime. We work with you to create a schedule to keep your businesses up and running while staging our work to be done in an open environment. We offer flexible 24/7 scheduling as well.
Identification and qualification of subcontractors is a critical component of any successful project. Our resources have been tried and tested via our national network and the extensive database we have created with over 25 years of projects. Additionally, we can acquire all materials, coordinate the shipping, provide secure storage and then install all components.
We don’t allow the permitting process to slow projects down. Through our permit expediting partner we have the ability to pull permits from coast to coast on a timely basis.
We have written before about the changing nature of retail projects as retailers look at non-traditional spaces for their next project. The trend continues with our most recent project of converting a former HH Gregg store into a Waterway express Car Wash. Converting a former appliance and consumer electronic showroom into a drive-thru car wash had it’s challenges. We added wash bay entrances into the front and back of the existing structure, new floors into existing space, and many modifications to the structure to accommodate a unique new use.
