Roles and Responsibilities

Leadership

Tony Peressini (CEO), Rob Labelle (President) and Maureen O’Neill (VP of Planning and Development) make up TJG’s Leadership Team. Their decades of combined experience in the commercial construction industry brings extensive value to the projects they work on. A member of the leadership team is assigned to provide executive oversight on each project. Their primary responsibility is to ensure TJG is delivering on promises made to the client. This is accomplished by taking responsibility for client communication, team development, scheduling, value engineering, financial oversight, needs analysis and contract negotiations. They also have the authority to manage, direct on-site teams and provide direction to all projects.

Planning

TJG’S Planning Team is spearheaded by Maureen O’Neill (VP of Planning and Development) who works closely with the team of Project Designers, Estimators and Project Managers to strategically integrate planning services with construction management services. The Planning Teams’ responsibilities include real estate evaluation and reporting, feasibility planning and budgeting, site audits and recommendations, the production of contract documents, construction drawings and the provision of details. They are responsible for specifications and Building Code Identification Number (BCIN) stamped drawings for permit application.

Estimating

Together, Lisa Pink (General Manager/Estimator) and Len Vicente (Estimator) make up TJG’s Estimating Team. The Estimating Team is required to interpret all contract documentation and drawings for accurate and detailed tender pricing. They qualify and maintain trade relationships, complete quantitative take-off for forecast budgeting, including cost savings alternatives. The Estimating Team must also coordinate with project managers for financial overview and change management throughout the project.

Project Managers

Project managers are responsible for overall project construction and must engage directly with clients, planners, engineers, municipal officials, vendors and trades. They are responsible for change management, weekly meetings and minutes. The project managers maintain financial oversight by closely monitoring costs and maintaining the construction schedule. Communication with the site manager is necessary to ensure the construction site is safe and meeting the specifications of the Occupational, Health and Safety Act (OH&S). The project managers will also conduct final inspections, prepare deficiencies lists and expedite resolutions to the client’s satisfaction.

Administration

The administration team is responsible for financial tracking, managing safety documents and the distribution of project start-up documents. They are also an important point of contact with building owners and managers and integral to the construction process by supporting project and site managers with tracking and administrative documentation. The administrative role also includes working with municipalities for permit applications, reviews and final approvals. Upon completion, the Administration Team prepares and distributes project closeout binders and publishes completion data.

Site Managers

TJG’s site managers are responsible for the day-to-day operations of a construction site. This requires the on-site coordination of the trades and vendors as well as working with building managers. Site managers will monitor the progress of the project to make sure it meets scheduled deadlines. Of critical importance is the facilitation of the project’s health and safety program in accordance with OH&S.

Service Group

The Service Group is spearheaded by Norm Hayman who oversees a team of service coordinators. Together they provide maintenance services at all stages of construction. This includes addressing project deficiencies and completing warranty work. The Service Group also conducts ongoing site management for facilities including and not limited to: drywall, painting, door repairs, hardware repairs, structural works, concrete work, small project management and coordinating the mechanical/electrical trades as required to for service delivery.
