Project Manager's Role
An OpenSquare Project Manager’s role in an integrated furniture project includes working with the client, architect, product representative and designer, through reiterative draft plans and renderings; providing product and labor estimates for the fulfillment of the project, while considering other trade requirements; and establishing a critical path schedule utilizing Microsoft Project to document the schedule sequencing of the product and materials order, its arrival and installation.
The OpenSquare PM oversees the furniture and installation/construction and ensures total quality. As the Project Partners process requires regular meetings with team members and the client at defined intervals, potential problem areas are typically identified and addressed prior to furniture installation. Should problems emerge after installation, OpenSquare utilizes a standard Punchlist Process and Form to document all issues and determine appropriate solutions. As indicated above, it is the Project Manager’s responsibility to ensure that the Punchlist is completed accurately and all issues are closed-out in a timely manner.
