    BuilderChat: Episode 7 - Creating Industry Jobs with Mark Lang

    BuilderChat: Episode 7 - Creating Industry Jobs with Mark Lang

    In this episode of BuilderChat, we sat with Mark Lang, founder and CEO of Quality Labor Management (QLM). QLM is a professional skilled staffing service for those in construction. Mark started QLM after his first successful business, Workers Temporary Staffing, was sold in 2006. In 2008, Mark changed his business strategy from day-labor staffing to “providing high-end professional skilled staffing” for the construction industry.

    Mark says the biggest challenge that QLM faces is finding quality. “We’re not just going to put anyone out there. We may interview 100 people. But only 10 will make it through our vetting process.” His biggest goal is trying to find the right people to send to QLM’s customers. They pride themselves on “high-end professionalism”, and hold every employee to that same standard.

    BuilderChat: Episode 6 - Project Management off the Jobsite with Garrison Green

    In this episode of BuilderChat, we sat with Garrison Green, Project Manager at DL Harkins Construction. Starting off fresh out of college as a Civil Engineer, he began to work in the Orlando, FL area. He was drawn to DL Harkins “…because of the smaller company size, being involved in local projects, and being able to come home every night.”

    Since joining DL Harkins Construction as a Project Manager, he has been responsible for reviewing the performance overviews of their projects, checking up on vendor quotes, daily reports, and looking over submittals and RFI’s. As Garrison puts it, he’s “where the rubber meets the road, in terms of contracts.”

    BuilderChat: Episode 5 - Managing Job Sites with RedTeam w/ Shawn Andrews

    In this episode of BuilderChat, we sat with Shawn Andrews, Director of Operations at Mellick Construction. He began working for this company because, as Shawn says, “It’s a place that good people gravitate to, and great people stay.” As the Director of Operations, some of the typical tasks he has are to setup tracking mechanisms to make sure the business is profitable, hitting their quarterly goals, and to keep track of subcontractors on the job sites.

    On the subject of construction and software, he chose to use RedTeam as Mellick’s construction project management software. Shawn uses RedTeam to view project reports, making sure all of the work is being done in an efficient manner. He also uses the program to send out reports and comments to the subcontractors, all without having to go out to the site in person.
