Essential points for project success
Interface between all involved
With the aim of transmitting accurate and more agile information for decision making and solutions, it was necessary to create a communication flow between all those involved and carry out a dedicated joint management, where a member of the team remained resident on the work to quickly identify any problem. and report to the other who was remote and responsible for the managerial communication with the client.
Before starting the mobilization of the work, a detailed photographic report was made of any property with direct or indirect impact on the work, to protect the client from any future damage, whether positive or negative. In addition, a weekly photographic report recorded the evolution of the work.
Ensuring good alignment between all interested parties to understand the needs and procedures of the areas involved, mainly external organizations to align mandatory flows and procedures.
Project x Work
Ensuring the supply of samples of materials and mockups proposed in the project for client validation and formalization of decisions, working with real expectations and not based only on 3D models.
During the work, tests were required in loco to ensure that there were no changes in the finishing shades due to lighting or other factors.
