A Hawaii-based interior firm hired the DeWitt Guam installation team as a subcontractor for a fairly straightforward project at a corrosion control hangar on a Guam military base. The team was tasked with unpacking, assembling, and installing all the furnishings for a medium-sized office with five work stations, plus a break room.
However, construction on the building was behind schedule. In order to prevent additional delays, the construction contractor asked the DeWitt Guam team to complete the installation while its team finished up construction.
When it came time for the DeWitt Guam team to begin installation, the building wasn’t complete. Whereas the team would normally establish their own project flow and procedures for maximum efficiency, the DeWitt Guam installation team had to work around the construction in progress.
Constant communication was the key to completing this project successfully. The DeWitt Guam Team Lead worked closely with the construction team leader throughout the day. As each area was completed, the DeWitt Guam Team Lead deployed crew members to jump in and complete the install.
Despite having to work around the timeline of the construction crew, DeWitt Guam’s team was able to finish their part of the office installation on time.
Additionally, frequent communication kept the Hawaii-based client in the loop, giving them the confidence that the DeWitt Guam team had the situation under control.
The interior firm was also thrilled with the final pictures, making for a successful project all around.
They continue to partner on future projects with the DeWitt Guam team.
