One of Ridgemont’s greatest strengths is our knowledge and relationship with the local subcontractor market. Ridgemont has established a comprehensive database of qualified subcontractors throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana over the past 40 years and we know who to trust with your project. We understand the importance of utilizing reputable local subcontractors/suppliers and we will make every effort to keep the entire Ridgemont team updated on subcontractor performance on our projects.
In a weekly operations meeting, the team shares notes about the performance of subcontractors on ongoing projects. The information is then passed along weekly to the estimating team in order to keep the entire team updated with the most current information.
Paying close attention to the work load of new and commonly used trades allows Ridgemont to further eliminate the amount of surprises encountered during the construction process.

A comprehensive plan is the foundation for quality control on any project. Quality projects are critical to our success and begin with a thorough understanding of the client's objectives, plans and specifications. Our project management and field personnel are dedicated to ensuring that we have constructed and performed in accordance with our client’s goals. We are aligned with subcontractors that stand behind our commitment to only delivering quality work.
We continuously emphasize the need for quality workmanship in our daily discussions and subcontractor meetings. Our quality assurance checklist is a key tool we use for monitoring quality and provides our clients with consistent, measurable results each and every day.
Owner warranty requests are treated as a top priority by the everyone on the Ridgemont team. At the close of the project, under Ridgemont supervision, the vendors, equipment suppliers, and subcontractors will demonstrate and educate the building Facility Manager, and his staff on the operation of all building systems. Maintenance procedures, use of information manuals and other instructional materials are discussed and handed off. We will video record the training meeting for future use by the Facility Manager and the facilities staff.
During this training meeting, we will introduce the building Facility Manager and staff to Ridgemont Commercial Construction’s Warranty Manager Dan Tolleson. Dan will serve as the primary contact for warranty calls and work during the warranty period of the project. Dan will ensure rapid correction of any deficient items of work, as he will facilitate, manage and coordinate all warranty work during the warranty period. He will also conduct a “warranty walk”, approximately 30 to 60 days prior to the end of the initial warranty period. Dan will promptly address any warranty items as a result of the warranty walk.
