Mr. Rivera is our Chief Operating Office with over thirteen years of experience in the construction industry. He leads our Project Management team in completing Lump Sum, Design-Build and Construction Manager at Risk projects.
Mr. Rivera is our strongest attribute to our Project Management team. He spends a great deal of time digesting the project and the requirements of the Contract to determine scopes of work and constructability. He is very diligent in his processes and prides himself on working with the project team to complete the project as intended.
Mr. Rivera’s construction process can be broken down into three phases. The most critical phase includes the job set-up and procurement phase. This phase includes; formation of the P6 Primevera Critical Path Schedule, creation of schedule of values and budgets for payment and job costing, project buyout including insurance of purchase orders and composing subcontracts, obtaining proper local, state and federal permitting, and in depth review of submittals and shop drawings.
During construction, or the second phase, his responsibilities include; enforcement of FDC’s safety policies, confirming proper work implantation and creation of RFIs, managing purchase orders and subcontractors, timely delivery equipment and materials, updating; schedules, submittal logs, pay applications and budgets.
The last phase which is just as critical as the job set-up phase includes project start-up and closeout. This entails; coordination of manufacturer’s representatives services with the completion of work, onsite start-up of complex water and wastewater systems with operating flows, coordination of closeout documents and completion of punch lists.
