How We Manage Your Project
We use the “MWC Project Management System,” a proven management process, developed over years and implemented with the experience of our key professionals.
Obtaining the Greatest Value thru our bidding process
Marshall White Construction Inc. will solicit competitive bidding from our long list of qualified subcontractors. We breakdown our bids into standard industry groupings and obtain bids from multiple subcontractors for each component part of the project. MWC then provides a complete information proposal to both owner and architect. All subcontractor contacts are managed through our project management office where changes are managed in the most expeditious manner. Our continuous review speeds up the bid process and helps keep your project on schedule. The importance of selecting quality professional subcontractors, who have been prequalified for the job, assures a timely and quality built project. MWC subcontractors understand the importance of good value, a principal that extends throughout the MWC team.
Our criteria for selecting the right subcontractors for the right project include the following qualifications:
Managing the Project Schedule
The MWC Project Management System performs a complete analysis of the entire project at the onset, and schedules comprehensively, all activities for all construction phases of the project. The master schedule integrates all work, both on and off-site.

The MWC “PMS” continually, monitors, analyzes all activities and identifies critical decision points during the entire project, start to finish. The MWC "PMS" permits our project management team, the ability to identify and resolve problems and conflicts that may affect any aspect of the project schedule. During the weekly team meetings the schedule will be reviewed with all project team participants.

Project Completion and Owner’s Manual
