The projects above are a few that I was mainly associated with during my tenure at Ace Asphalt. All of these jobs started from an initial set of drawings, taken-off ( by others ), estimated and negotiated prior to construction. The construction cost range was from 150k-1.5 Million Our customer base consisted of both long term and newcomers.
The above projects all consisted of ground up construction. Initial site work included site preparation, cuts / fills, over-excavation if required. The building pad preparation per soils report specs and all site concrete was within our scope followed by sub-grade preparation and asphalt or PCCP. My main role in all of these projects was to work with the owners and coordinate construction. I also was responsible for billings, change orders and following up with punch-list items.
500- 18,000 CY of material cut/ filled or imported/exported on each project
All projects came in below estimate with regard to margins
Managed all aspects of our scope of construction
City of Aurora Overlay Program
The primary role of the project was milling and overlay of various arterial, collector, and residential streets throughout the city. This particular project included several major arterial streets where traffic and general public was a main role of mine. I was in constant contact with local residents and businesses in order to ensure safety and good relations throughout the duration of the project
This project was approximately $9.0 Million and lasted 180 days. I was heavily involved in the initial bid process as well as field supervision of all field operations. I was responsible for all payment applications, change orders, lien waivers, and maintaining quantity information for all subcontractors. I maintained exclusive management of the schedule and my main goal was to maintain our estimated margins.
Field superintendents and crew foreman reported to me on progress and held regular meetings to ensure schedule and costs were being met. I was a daily contact between city and state officials to ensure project specifications were being met. I was also heavily involved with but not responsible for internal quality control, plant operations, trucking logistics. I successfully managed this project to 3% profit above margin and also was able to negotiate over $100k in change orders.
