    Working on Customer Service: Part 2

    Welcome to the continuation of GTC’s series on Customer Service. In this series we review different points that are critical to making clients happy in an A/E/C environment. Today’s reminder will cover Quality, Professional, Constructive Relationships, and a Positive Company Culture.

    Company Values that Guide GTC   Based on company meetings held in 2013, GTC identified six main values that would serve to guide us through the planning process.  Those six values are:

    • Customer Satisfaction
    • Pride in Performance
    • Quality
    • Positive Constructive Relationships
    • Positive Company Culture
    • Financial Return  

    The following are some of the bullet points that were identified by employees during those meetings:

    Quality

    • Quick response to questions
    • Be the Owner’s expert
    • Define / understand Owner’s expectations  then exceed them
    • Keep the subs interested in the project
    • Little sugar goes a long way
    • Super does not allow subs to take short-cuts
    • Plan ahead
    • Mechanical / Electrical coordination – ahead of time
    • Have expectations of ourselves and our subcontractors
    • Do more than is expected of us
    • Constructability reviews that matter
    • Be solution oriented
    • Supporting the field efforts 

     Professional, Constructive Relationships with: 

    • Owners and Owner’s Representatives
    • Architects and Engineers
    • Subcontractors and Suppliers and their employees
    • Our employees

    Positive Company Culture

    • Value employees
    • Create team atmosphere
    • Positive morale is a priority
    • Attract and retain good employees

      

    GTC Employee Spotlight:
    Bill Meihaus, Superintendent

    Bill Meihaus (pronounced "MY-house") was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, to an American father and a Puerto Rican mother. (“I’m half-Puerto Rican. Nobody believes it!”) Note: We're not sure if he was being serious. Bill is known for his dry wit. During his days playing college sports, he had the opportunity to travel—a lot. He’s been to over forty U.S. states, plus Canada and Mexico. After all the places he’s been, he says he'd spend his ideal vacation on the shores of Lake Michigan.  

    Bill has been in construction for 34 years—the last nine of those with GTC—but he definitely has a softer side. His favorite movie is Titanic, and right now his favorite singer is Adele. (Again, we're not sure if he's joking.) On one of his most recent jobs—Broomfield Business Center Overlook, a 130 acre site development—his favorite feature was the nesting bald eagles at the edge of the site. Bill made sure that he and his crew stayed the requisite 660 feet away from them during the whole nesting season. Perhaps this was his parental-instinct kicking in, since Bill lists his top two favorite hobbies as his children and grandchildren. (The other two are fishing and golf.) 

    What is your best DIY tip that the average, non-construction person should know? 
    Leave it to a professional, if you can afford it. 

    What’s something on your bucket list?
    To sky dive.
     

    What is your favorite thing about GTC?
    The way Andy dresses for Christmas.

    Christmas 2015 - ugly sweaters
