In the fast-paced world of construction, adhering to critical deadlines is a paramount challenge. David Laughlin, Public Market Leader at Willmeng, sheds light on how the company has risen to this challenge, particularly in the parks and recreation sector.   

  Meeting Tight Deadlines  

One of the recurring obstacles faced by Willmeng’s team is projects with strict deadlines. These deadlines are non-negotiable, whether they are commitments made to city councils, tied to major upcoming events, or constrained by fiscal considerations. Consequently, many projects must kickstart well in advance of the conventional timeline.  

The Willmeng team works diligently to seamlessly integrate the design and construction phases. Multiple Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) strategies are deployed to initiate construction early, facilitating the procurement of long lead materials while allowing the design to advance concurrently. This dynamic requires a distinct skill set, as construction often commences while the design is still evolving. We are incredibly proud of our team and our strong commitment to meeting critical deadlines for the city.   

  Team Success   

This accomplishment is a source of immense pride for Willmeng. The ability to execute projects with precision, even under tight time constraints, exemplifies their dedication to excellence and client satisfaction. It is a testament to their adaptability, resourcefulness, and unwavering commitment to delivering beyond expectations.  

Willmeng’s approach to park development is a true testament to our team’s tenure and their strong expertise in the parks and rec division. It has been exciting to see them master the delicate balance between design evolution and construction initiation. They have not only met critical deadlines but have consistently exceeded them, leaving a trail of strong partnerships and amazing community projects.
