The BJCC project consisted of many smaller projects that all contributed to the whole. A large number of projects means there are many different people involved, and KMS kept communications running smoothly by coordinating conversations between the numerous contractors and the client.
Because the BJCC hosts various events—including concerts, plays and large conventions—each year, scheduling work around those events to avoid disruptions was key to managing the project work. Additionally, we coordinated major planned power outages that affected several buildings in downtown Birmingham and prevented interruptions to other businesses' operations.
Managing a project of this magnitude included, in addition to the aforementioned: mechanical upgrades, lighting upgrades, plumbing upgrades, control upgrades, quality control, and overseeing each individual project to completion.
Project Management at KMS speaks to how we “bridge” the connections to our client’s vision. This part of our process covered things like:
With a high level of detail on so many smaller projects, keeping everything in check required boots on the ground. KMS was on-site, connecting with everyone involved so each project went smoothly. All in all, this project required 5,000 workers, so clear coordination was key.
❝"The most enjoyable thing about the program is being a true owners rep and being able to provide value through the technology and systems that KMS uses. Being able to provide strong coordination guidance during complex projects and multiple moving parts is enjoyable as well."
