Our Quality Steps


Prior to beginning a project, in-office project management staff identify and enter all required tasks into project management software. Next, a schedule, risk and opportunity register are developed and updated.

Project Execution Plan

Once the project progresses to the field, Michels uses both high-level and day-today communication strategies. Project leaders meet regularly with owner’s representatives to share information on plans, schedules and performance. The project’s labor force discuss troubleshooting, logistics and issues each day with engineers and superintendents, ensuring safe, efficient, environmentally sound project execution.

Quality Control During Construction

Michels’ in-house quality team works with the operations team to provide training, tools and techniques to achieve the quality expectations in accordance with project specifications and standards. At the field level, quality is everyone’s responsibility. If anyone sees anything that does not meet the project’s specifications, they have an obligation to stop work and bring the issue to their supervisor.
