Our team relocated to the Shanghai District in China to assist Ryan Associates General Contractors in their role to oversee quality with regard to the construction of the Zhongkai Sheshan Villas. We managed the onsite team of superintendents and master carpenters to review the construction of three high-end villas. We were asked to observe, record and report on the general progress of construction and provide guidance to the local workforce on site. We accepted the unique challenges of place, culture and language, in addition to the normal challenges of time-sensative delivery of the final product. Our primary role was that of daily onsite Project and Construction Management. We created agendas for and hosted weekly project meetings with the owners, architects and contractors - all in Mandarin. We were also responsible for establishing the onsite office, standards and protocols.
