DESCRIPTION

When Heartland Middle School in Edmond, Oklahoma fell months behind, Edmond Public Schools reached out to HPM for assistance. The project opened for classes as scheduled in fall 2016. However, significant work remained incomplete, including substantial re-work and almost the entirety of an extensive punch list. HPM provided a Field Coordinator to directly supervise the contractor’s completion of unfinished work, and facilitated the completion of the work during non-school hours, around the academic calendar, and in a timely manner. HPM’s efforts led to greater productivity from subcontractors due to proper planning and experienced oversight. Upon final completion of the project, HPM led negotiations of claims on the district’s behalf and recovered appropriate claims while maintaining the working relationship with the contractor.

“The HPM team served as our envoy to get the project finished. They were extremely knowledgeable, very professional and really had a deep understanding of the contract documents. The team utilized excellent project management skills to problem solve any issues that arose during the finish of the project. They were always honest and straightforward on all issues that concerned the project and aided me in the decision-making process.”
