Progress Inspections & Reports
The design is complete, permits are in place, the contractor has been selected…now it’s time to build. This is the “verification” part of the process and your OPM is the only person on the project team whose primary purpose is to make sure that you, as the Owner, are getting exactly what you planned for and paid for. Day-to-day inspections and verification can sometimes be performed by a Clerk-of-the-Works working directly for the Owner.
PCI has been involved in Winooski Housing Authority's Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) project since 2018. Made up of multiple renovation projects, RAD included the Spring Gardens Roof Replacement. Natty Jamison served as Owner’s Project Manager for this sub-project. The roof had previously been a ballasted system, and was replaced with a state of the art, mechanically attached membrane. The project was completed over the course of 3 months due to the COVID-19 outbreak and finished under budget.
UVMMC Essex Adult Primary Care
The PCI team has completed numerous projects with the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC) and was ready to take on the Essex Adult Primary Care facility. PCI was involved in this project from the early conceptual stage through facility commissioning. The project management duties within PCI changed hands, from Tom to Hunter, as the project went from design to construction. The project was built utilizing a construction manager design/build project delivery method, which fostered a team-driven approach with all parties working in the best interest of the project. The construction of the facility was accomplished in just under a year, coming to a close in April 2020. This project was completed on time and under budget.
Freeman Woods, Memory Care
Freeman Woods is a new, state-of-the art, 56-bed memory care facility to be built in Essex, Vermont. During pre-construction Peterson Consulting performed a thorough review of plans and specs, as well as budget review and cost certification. We conducted progress and compliance inspections on behalf of the owner throughout the construction phase.
“In 2011, Champlain College hired Tom to provide Owner's Representation services for a residential dormitory project under construction at its campus in Burlington, Vermont. The Project, which is a steel-fame, brick veneered, multi-level structure containing 95 residential rooms and other programming elements, was completed this summer.
Since being hired shortly after the start of construction last summer, Tom quickly became the direct link between senior and planning management staff at the College and the Project team (design and construction professionals hired by the College). In this capacity, Tom was directly involved in all aspects of the construction process, including monitoring progress, attending job meetings, reviewing design documents and contract administration.
Tom possesses a firm grasp of the technical details associated with the Project as well as scheduling and sequencing skills required to complete the work, quickly and efficiently. Just as important, Tom has impressed me with his communication skills and personality. Regardless of the nature of the project-related interaction (with a subcontractor, vendor, public official or Owner), my observation is that Tom is direct, thoughtful, positive and collegial.
The College will be utilizing Tom's skill set for the next two dormitories to be constructed, and I highly recommend Tom for challenging construction projects requiring a diligent and knowledgeable construction professional on the ground.”
