How MDT Electrical Operate
The office based project team has allocated customers which they deal with directly, which means they are able to build good working relationships with their customers and gain detailed knowledge of their project work and specifications.
Our project teams are led by a project manager who prepares and submits the initial tender, attends prestart meetings, organises the setting up of site welfare facilities and the sales complex, ensures the accuracy of material schedules and deals with drawing amendments and purchaser extras. The project manager is also responsible for all invoicing and invoice queries. Predominantly office-based, they are available from 9am to 5pm (on mobile before 9am) for any issues our customers wish to discuss.
Working alongside the project manager there is usually an assistant project manager and a project coordinator.
Each job is headed up by a supervisor who has responsibility for the smooth running of the job. Reporting directly to our production director, the supervisors allocate labour and resources and visit site regularly to ensure that work is progressing to site managers’ complete satisfaction.
Supervisors will carry out regular inspections, test a selection of completed installations and also accompany the quality auditors on their regular inspections. They are responsible for day-to-day health and safety issues on site, being the site manager’s point of contact for any problems that cannot be resolved directly with the team leader.
Site Based Teams
Our electricians and apprentices operate in small teams, each headed up by a team leader. Because the whole team share a job incentive scheme this reflects their efforts on site, everyone feels encouraged to work quickly and efficiently – and this means forward planning and getting things right first time.
Reporting to a supervisor, the team leader has responsibility for all day-to-day activities on site such as booking in work with the site manager and ensuring build programmes are adhered to. They are also responsible for ensuring that their teams work safely and produce workmanship of a high standard. Once the wiring is complete, team leaders tests each property before issuing the NICEIC certificate.
The team leader will attend site meetings and is the site manager’s first point of contact for any problems that may arise.
