When asked how he makes sure a job will stay on track,
Superintendent Cracker Jenkins said:
“I am constantly coordinating with subcontractors. I’m checking submittals, layouts, material arrival dates, and work completion timeframes. I’m always looking one or two weeks out so I am fully aware of what needs to be completed, and to make sure my timeframes are right. I make sure I know when materials will be arriving. I’ll call the manufacturer directly to make sure I have correct arrival dates. Every subcontractor depends on every other subcontractors t reach completion of their respective work at a specific time. If material or slow labor interrupts that completion schedule, my whole job will fall behind. I have to watch material and labor, day in and day out, and coordinate to get results. Of course, I do all this while keeping the site safe and keeping the owner comprised of how the job is progressing. I’ll arrive as early or stay as late as I need to and I’ll work whatever days are required to keep the job on track. I have for the last 35 years, why change now?”
