M. J. Electric’s Program Management Organization (PMO) provides comprehensive construction
management to clients for power delivery projects including lines, substations,
and power plants. The PMO acts as an extension of our client’s staff to
develop processes, procedures, and systems in order to deliver the project on schedule
and within budget. Our client benefits from a single point of management responsibility
from project pre-planning to total construction administration services. This unique
combination provides our clients a single source for program management.
The foundation for a successful project starts with early program planning. The
ability for a prime contractor to be involved at the early planning stage is paramount
in today’s fast track life cycle of most projects. Early involvement at the preplanning
phase of the program enables MJE to provide value to customers with preconstruction
planning, subcontracting services, cost control, scheduling coordination, quality
assurance, and safety relating to the prime electrical scope of work. Early feedback
on material/equipment pricing and lead time, along with means/methods and logistical
studies, can provide the client with vital information required for a more efficient
design and engineering process.
Our detail oriented management approach, dedication to safety excellence, and commitment
to total quality management provides an effective and efficient way to manage your
program process. The most important activity our project teams perform is to build
safety into our project plans. Safety is critical to every project, no exceptions.
Our skilled managers have the capability to detect uncertainties and identifying
red flags at every stage of a project's execution. Our extensive reporting capabilities
help us identify, communicate, and address potential problematic issues early in
the process. Real-time schedule, cost, resources, forecasts, and status reports
are available through our computerized tracking systems.
A significant aspect of construction administration is the management of subcontractors.
M. J. Electric has a sub-department within the Program Management Organization responsible
for identifying and evaluating company risk as it pertains to subcontracts, contracts,
and insurance. Subcontract initiation, review, processing, approval, and monitoring
are all conducted by the Risk Management Department. This process ensures that any
subcontractor being brought on a project has the competency to perform the work,
the insurance limits required by MJE and/or the client, and the required safety
qualifications. At the end of every project, Project Managers are asked to fill
out a Subcontractor Performance Evaluation Form to rate the subcontractor on thirteen
aspects of performance. The primary goal is to keep unqualified or risky subcontractors
from being involved in our projects.
