FOUR PILLARS OF SUCCESS

QUALITY

This is a key driver to controlling both schedule and cost. Projects do not have enough time to allow for rework, so the importance of quality must be emphasized to ensure everyone takes ownership of their work and performs it correctly the first time. W. M. Lyles Co. has developed a culture of accountability throughout our field craft which has greatly benefited project quality and cleanliness.

SAFETY

Jobsites are complex environments, with workers from multiple trades interacting in a challenging physical environments. W. M. Lyles Co.’s focus on safety behavior and safety requirements has led to zero OSHA violations, and over the last 5 years our worker’s compensation claims, or Total Recordable Injury Rate (TRIR), has routinely fallen well below the industry average both statewide and on a national scale.

COST

We utilize industry leading cost controls and accounting systems on all of our Projects. Our experience in doing this as a standard will ensure timely and accurate cost control and reporting in a format that all project stakeholders can utilize.

SCHEDULE

Construction project planning is like creating a roadmap that leads everyone through all the phases of the project. Our team will proactively manage the entire schedule, with a sharp focus on the critical path. Our goal is to maximize efficiency which will result in an overall lower project cost.
