Online PR News – 13-May-2016 – WEST CHICAGO, IL – Adam Plank of Synergy Builders, a home remodeling business in Naperville, IL was awarded the Class of 2016 "Forty Under 40" Award from Pro Remodeler Magazine in April this year.
The annual Pro Remodeler award is given to forty people under 40 years of age who demonstrate high potential for success in leadership and creative solutions in remodeling. Nominees for the award must have developed and executed best practices that made a significant impact at their firm - whether it was related to budget, sales, operations, management or other areas.
As one of the top remodeling contractors in Naperville, Synergy Builders nominated their Production Manager, Adam Plank (35) for his process for lowering slippage, which has reduced production costs to the lowest level ever seen at the company.
"As a company, we hold a meeting on the job site transferring the house remodeling project from the sales team to the production team, where the project manager can then go through, evaluate materials, and assess the project schedule in relation to the budget given by the estimator. The project manager then looks for areas where time and cost can be made up so that he can put adjustments in place before the start date. This prevents those all-too-common "hindsight" findings that can skyrocket production costs," said Adam Plank, Production Manager for Synergy Builders.
This double-check shifts the ownership of the schedule and numbers from the estimator to the project manager, enabling him to have a realistic benchmark to work against. This has allowed the company to consistently have a positive impact on the job outcome by coming in on budget and on time.
"In addition to the initial meeting and evaluation, every phase of the job is broken out into categories of 'over', 'under' or 'within budget', so that we know where we stand in that moment - well before the completion of the project. This real-time data provides more accurate numbers so that we can track and adjust as we go, versus looking back at the completed project and trying to figure out where the 'overs' and 'unders' were," concluded Plank.
Synergy Builders consistently ranks high among remodelers as demonstrated by their Awards and accolades that include:
• Named one of the "Top 500 Remodelers" from Qualified Remodelers for the past nine consecutive years.
• Presented with the "Remodeling 550 Award" from Remodeling Magazine for the past eight years.
• Inducted to Remodeling Magazine's "Remodeling Big 50" list in 2008.
