SCHEDULING
At Wilhite Electric Inc., we pride ourselves on our ability to stay ahead of schedule.We work with the general contractor to solve problems before they arise, keeping the job on schedule. We also work with the other trades on the job toassure a smooth flow of work. Wilhite Electric Inc. strives to identifies conflicts and problems ahead of time to solve the problems proactively.

CONTRACT MANAGEMENT –ON TIME AND WITHIN BUDGET
Wilhite Electric Inc’s approach to contract management requires project ownership and involvement on every team.Once awarded a project, we move quickly to ensure the final scope of work is clarified and contracted so the planning, lay-out and buy-out process can initiate. From this meeting we generate follow-up items, to-do items, material lists (identifying long-lead items), prefabrication, a submittal log, and a timeline for layouts. We review the general contractor’s schedule and perform a complete manpower forecast. We then generate three week schedules weekly to ensure we are meeting the overall schedule. This process allows us to proactively solve problems before they arise, identify when materials are needed on-site for projects with limited storage, and identify activities for manpower.

QUALITY CONTROL
Quality is a main focus at Wilhite Electric Inc.We pride ourselves with zero punch lists, low warranty requests, and a quality far above other contractors.In order to obtain this high quality we have multiple checks and balances. We start with a detailed quality control program used to check every aspect of the project.Depending on the project we may also include a commissioning plan identifying proper installation.
