Ridgemont interviewed the Project Manager, Hector Rivera who worked on the Parc 820 project, below you can find an inside look into how the project was accomplished.
WHAT WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF THIS PROJECT?
Developing a massive project around a natural Water of the US territory and the process to obtain the compulsory permits.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST REWARDING PART OF THIS PROJECT?
Finishing the project with no punch list requests from the Owner, just before the date that the Owner needed the buildings. The project was also completed on budget, even though we went through very challenging milestones and extended timeline.
WHAT ARE SOME LESSONS LEARNED FROM THIS PROJECT?
Identify, protect and control the access to all designated areas (i.e. W.O.U.S.) on a project site prior to breaking ground. Make sure your subcontractors and all personnel understand the importance of it. Keep that control during the whole process…and most important ” don’t let your guard down…remain vigilant”.
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO THANK YOUR TEAM MEMBERS THAT WORKED ON THIS PROJECT WITH YOU?
I would like to thank them for all the hard work, commitment, SUPPORT and patience.
WHAT SURPRISED YOU WORKING ON THIS PROJECT?
It really surprised me that not with standing the milestones and the difficulties found in this project, how IMPORTANT it was to maintain the communication and openness with our client. Keeping our client informed on every step of the solution process was the key to keep their trust intact, and the main factor to obtain the satisfaction of ending the project strong.
HOW DO YOU THINK THIS PROJECT WILL IMPACT THE COMMUNITY IT IS IN?
Being and an industrial park, it would help the continuous economic growth and progress that the North Texas Region has shown for the last decade.
