Project Management

Project Management Excellence means Project Success

Interstates Construction is committed to the highest level of quality and excellence in everything we do.

It starts with expert project and contractor management services. In today's design-build, fast track world, it is critical to always know the status of your project.

Project Management excellence leads to project success for Interstates. Our emphasis on having the best trained Project Managers and contractor management services in the business translates into well-run projects for our clients.

All Project Managers are trained in the world’s only recognized Project Management Organization known as Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Many of our Project Managers have the elite certification as Project Management Professionals.

Your project’s success begins long before the first spade of dirt is turned. Project Planning offers its greatest leverage in the earliest planning stages.

Our goal is to have a seat at your "planning table"—adding valuable insight to the entire construction process at this high-leverage time.

With our partner divisions throughout Interstates, we welcome the chance to offer assistance with project layouts, pre-engineering, control philosophies, cost estimating, and contractor management services.

Project Management Systems

  • Project Scheduling
    Scheduling is not a one-time act, but rather is a living document utilized as a valuable communication and measurement tool.

    Interstates uses the most up-to-date scheduling software packages and dedicated expertise to schedule projects. Project managers complete six-week look-ahead schedules and weekly progress updates for our clients.

  • Client Communication & Updates
    We prefer to not surprise our clients, unless of course, it’s a good surprise. We accomplish this with consistent communication and updating of critical data to make a project successful. Weekly progress updates help keep us on track with the rest of the project.

    Our intent is to proactively identify open items or out layers and offer solutions and answers as these issues arise. Specifically utilizing web based collaboration software we can keep our clients in the loop 24-7.

  • Project Controls
    Construction project personnel utilize our scorecard system to know weekly how the projects are performing on several key control points. Purchase orders and man-hours are maintained daily to ensure that current information is always available.
  • Agile Construction Methods
    Our project delivery team uses Agile methods (similar to Lean) to provide clients with the greatest productivity possible.

    This includes offering the smallest on-site footprint as possible with the use of supply chain management skills that leverage offsite material staging and Just in time (JIT) material delivery. We maximize value provided to our clients by eliminating non value added activities.

  • InterTrak
    Coupled with our standard project controls, InterTrak is our internal tool to track and collaborate all electrical components of an industrial project from design through startup.

    During construction, all electrical components are tracked to provide updates on which items have been piped, wired, terminated, and checked out.
