As our Contract Administrator, Mark is responsible for ensuring that the proper documentation is correct and that the project schedule is maintained to achieve a successful outcome
Omega Maintenance Group often submits tenders where a number of trade disciplines are required, particularly for Defence projects.
After receiving the project particulars which contain the Scope of Works, various drawings, specifications and other related documents, we contact local contractors whose skills meet the requirements of the project and forward appropriate information for them to compile a quotation for their works. We generally require quotes to be provided within a week, as there is a lot of other work involved in preparing a tender submission and limited time to submit.
We then compile a schedule of the works using Microsoft Project which produces a Gantt chart of the project. When this chart is produced we take into account the sequence that the works are to be completed by each contractor, ensuring that there are no clashes and continuous work to minimise the number of visits. Contingencies for rain delays and equipment problems are taken into account in these calculations as well.
Once all of the quotes have been received, we calculate other costs such as site establishment, security needs if required, specialised certifications etc. and proceed with the submission.
Once a tender has been awarded we gather the contractors together and provide the timelines for their participation and get on with the job. Safety is paramount in any workplace and our Project Managers and Site Supervisors are on the constant lookout for any potential hazards and take immediate action if any are identified. All work done complies with all applicable building codes and Australian standards and is performed by licensed contractors.
Constant communication between the contractors and the Principals is paramount in providing a smooth and successful completion of the project.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN IT’S TIME TO REPAINT?
It is easy not to notice the exterior of your building deteriorating, as it can happen over a period of time. Attention to it’s state of repair usually only happens when problems occur – such as water penetration – and only then do you realise the extent of the work needed.
Different surfaces deteriorate in different ways. Wood will generally show signs of wear earlier than hard surfaces such as concrete, stone or cladding. The environment plays a major role in the life span of a building’s exterior. Seaside properties can suffer not only from metal corrosion, but the salt air can affect durable surfaces such as powder coating and galvanising. North-facing walls can suffer deterioration from ultraviolet radiation more than other walls of a building.
Other causes of paint deterioration can be mould or fungus in areas that don’t get a lot of sunlight.
INSPECT THE BUILDING
When assessing your building for remedial work it is important to look at the whole of the property, not just the problem areas that are obvious, this will avoid surprises further down the road. It is best practice to address everything at once rather than do one part at a time and require multiple visits by a contractor.
Every type of surface requires particular methods of painting and paint products. Primers and undercoats are the most important items when re-painting – what works best with metal is totally different to wood or concrete. Finishing surfaces can be latex, acrylic or epoxy depending on the surface and environment.
Whether you just need a freshen up or you are thinking of selling a property, make sure that you can present the best impression to your clientele.
