2 – Schedule Control


Critical Path Scheduling

Being on time is about integrity. We meet important deadlines using these core operational principles:

  • Team Organization
  • Availability & Project Prioritization
  • Early Internal Deadlines
  • Clear and Consistent Communication
  • Verbal, Written, Graphic Communication Tools
  • Regular Review Periods

3 – Cost Control


Visual Cost Estimation

Being on budget is about reliability. We’ve got the confidence to lock into an iron clad fixed-price contract…if we blow the budget, you don’t eat it, we do. Our confidence is founded on internal cost controls achieved by adhering to these core operational principles:

  • Concurrent Design / Engineering / Cost Estimating
  • Locally derived Cost Estimates
  • Creativity and Problem Solving, particularly in Engineering
  • Clear and Consistent Communication
  • Thorough Construction Documents
  • Contingency Planning

4 – Quality Assurance


Review Meeting

Your skaters and community deserve our highest level of performance. We make this a reality by committing to:

  • Dedication of a single Design and Construction Team to your project from start to finish
  • Regular internal schedule review and maintenance
  • Regular communication and progress reporting
  • Regular internal performance reviews
  • Client follow-up / de-brief

5 – Creativity and Problem-Solving


Finding a way Over the Problem

Our “can-do” philosophy always finds a way around, over, under or straight through every challenge.
From dealing with last minute issues to engineering solutions for the weird sculptural features your skaters demand, we’re on it. We’re skaters…thinking outside the box is 2nd nature.
