Projx Construction Group was just recently awarded the contract to be the owner's representative for a long time client. We built a Goldfish Swim School for Randall Barbat about three years ago in Plainfield, Il. Rand is now expanding his Goldfish Swim School business into new markets. New Jersey is Randall's next territory which he is concentrating his efforts. Randall and Projx have formed a great relationship over the last few years based upon trust and expertise. Randall has hired Projx to assist him in selecting the right general contractor in the New Jersey market. The Projx team just recently visited the future Goldfish location in Middletown New Jersey and became familiar with the site. During this initial visit, Projx set up 5 interviews with 5 prequalified general contractors. It is Projx's responsibility to identify the right general contractor for this project as well as four others in the New Jersey area. Projx is in the process of identifying each general contractors' strengths and weaknesses along with obtaining a contractor's statement representing all proposed costs for the Middletown project.
Besides selecting the right general contractor, it is Projx's responsibility to manage the general contractor with weekly meetings, reports, submittals, communication and jobsite visits to assure that the project stays on schedule, on budget and the expected quality standards are met. We are very excited about this first opportunity of acting as the owner's rep with Goldfish. Projx has acted as the general contractor and successfully built more Goldfish Swim Schools in the country and we look forward to using the expertise that we have obtained to assist other franchisees in other new markets as a general contractor or an owner's representative.
