Commercial Inspection in Hobbs New Mexico. Behind schedule. Not good.

Commercial Inspection in Hobbs New Mexico. Behind schedule. Not good.

Staying on schedule is a top priority when trying to get a commercial project finished and get the property open for business.

Desert Sun Commercial Inspections reports just the facts.

I have not read the ins and outs of the contract, but there is a Thirty day window for this project. This means they cannot go over the allotted Thirty days.

As of Wednesday, They were 15 days behind schedule for the collision center.

The collision center was to be open for business on the Fist week of 2014. But it still has a couple of weeks work left to get it open for business.

Here is where the building sits as of Wednesday.

Collision Center.

As you can see the front of the building is not finished as of to date. The Stucco is being installed but the stone work has just started on the columns.

The interior of the building is almost completely finished.

Interior finished inside collision center.

The interior is looking really good.

The shop areas have been nearly completed.

Here we have a state of the art paint booth. There are two of these already installed and ready to go to work.

Staying on time and on budget is key for any project. I had a long talk with the new Project manager on Wednesday. He is showing a bit of frustration with the lack of English the crew can speak.

I told him he would have to have a meeting with the entire crew to help things get back on tract.

If not they may be looking at being fines levied for going over the thirty days allowed.

This is why Commercial projects in Southeast New Mexico call Desert Sun Commercial inspections.

Hi Clint.  I believe they are on a collision course with the completion date

Hi Rick,

They are doing really good work. The weather had thrown them back due to the cold weather here.

I hope they can get back on track.

Have a good day in El Paso.

Hello Michael,

These kind of projects need the oversight that keeps the contractor in line. Without it, they tend to get behind even farther.

Have a good day in Northern Va.

Hi Than,

IMO. This job will not see any bonus. They still have till 5-1-14 to finish everything. I think they will be hard pressed to do it.

Have a great day in Oklahoma.

Hi John,

I try each visit to meet with the manager. They just changed managers because of the "Behind". Time will tell if they can get it done on time befor the fines kick in.

Have a great day in Horsham.

Hi Roy,

Delivering on time seems to be the hard part these days. Seems almost every commercial project falls behind at some point.

Have a good day in Gaithersburg my friend.

Hi Rob,

Yes they are. There is just a ton more money involved with these commercial projects. This one is a 6.5 Million dollar job.

Enjoy the day in Bristol my friend.

Hi Al,

I am the eyes and ears for the lender. They don't like what they see we have issues for the builder.

Have a great day in Ormond by the sea.

Hi Kathy,

There are still a lot of these projects and home buyers who don't get a inspection or a commercial project draw management.

Makes no sense not to.

Have a nice day in Delray Beach.

Hi Suzanne,

I was asking a number of workers about what they were doing and the time frame. None of them could speak any English.

I feel if they are working in the U.S. Then they should be able to speak English. We are needing to communicate better.

Have a great day in Pa.

Hi Debbie,

Maybe that's why there was a change in the management for the project.

Hi Anita,

I hope they can get it together. They wanted to open the collision center the first of the year. But they were just installing the dust collector on Wednesday.

Have a nice day in Warner Robins.

People often don't care about deadlines or contracts.  That mostly speaks to character.  Hope they get on track.

Hi Jay,

I hope they do but the more inspection  do the more it costs the lender. Good and bad situation for the builder and lender.

Have a great day in Bristow.
