PRESIDENT'S LETTER

October 2014

It's a pretty safe bet that at one time or another, you've encountered the famous saying, "by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." Benjamin Franklin is one of the most noteworthy to utter these words. At Arcon, we live and die by this virtue. Preparing and/or planning are critical to the success of each and every project under our management; and I am proud to say that planning is one of Arcon Group's core strengths.

From a single-family ranch home, to a multi-unit / multi-story apartment complex, the Arcon team of construction professionals begins each project by developing a detailed construction "plan" for the job. This plan has many aspects including, but not limited to, schedule, budget, labor requirements, and the individual task lists necessary to complete the job. While this "planning" may seem like the proverbial "no-brainer," it is not so typical in most modular projects. Sure, the manufacturer plans their part, the developer plans their part and the site contractor plans their part, but with the typical modular project an "all-inclusive plan" for the job is often missing. That's where Arcon shines. In fact, I submit to you that it is one of the many things that continue to position Arcon Group at the forefront of the industry.

Because we look at each job as "one total project," we are able to "plan" logically. We anticipate potential challenges and we try to navigate those challenges long before construction is started. And we continue to work and tweak the plan throughout the construction process.

We make decisions on what aspects of the job should be done in the factory vs. onsite. We determine which material is shipped direct to the job site for onsite installation, rather than shipping it "loose" to the site in a module and needing to "work around" the material during the finish process. And, when we do ship material loose in the modules, we actual plan as to how the material is loaded, so that when it gets to the job site the material we need first is easily accessible. Again, seems pretty obvious, but I've seen far too often that if a plan is not in place these details can cause great agony and increased costs in trying complete the job.

In addition, I think one of the keys and one of the other items that differentiate the Arcon planning process from typical construction management is the fact that we encourage employees from every aspect of the job to participate in developing and tweaking the plan. This team approach really enables us to capitalize on the skills and expertise of our team - especially those on the frontline.

No matter the size of the construction project, every job should start with a plan. And with all the moving parts associated with a modular job you need a General Contractor with the skills and expertise necessary to complete the job on time and on budget. You can feel confident that Arcon Group is that Company.
