Project Delivery Philosophy

We believe excellence in project delivery is achieved through daily communication between your team and the Project Manager. D&R Earthmoving, LLC utilizes electronic project management tools to automate all aspects of the construction project from pre-construction to close out. Prolog Manager delivers in-depth electronic tools in the areas of collaboration, purchasing management, cost control, document management and field administration; while Primavera is used for all scheduling.

Our commitment to ensure successful project completion is facilitated by conducting onsite weekly foreman meetings with our subcontractors to review safety, coordination and progress. In addition, our project team will hold job progress/scheduling meetings with our subcontractors to discuss contract deliverables and job progress. By conducting frequent and focused meetings conflicts that may arise will be openly discussed and resolved.

Our team’s prosecution of the work will be amplified by self performing a large portion of the scope of work. Site demolition, Clearing & Grubbing, SESC, Earthwork (Land Balancing, Fine Grading), Utility installation (Storm Sewer, Sanitary Sewer, Foundation Excavation and Backfill, and Watermain), Place Aggregate Base, and total site development, can all be self-performed by D&R Earthmoving, LLC personnel. Self performing such a large portion of work will aid in driving all critical path activities on the schedule.

D&R Earthmoving, LLC’s commitment to quality is expressed in all parts of our organization as we strive for zero defects, and is a commitment we will pursue vigorously.
