FALLS CHURCH, VA – “It’s incredibly expensive to show up to a job site without a plan and try to figure it out as you go. Yet many of your businesses will put you in that situation, if you let it. C was a message from instructor Kirk Alter to the 26 participants of the Plumbing-Heating-Air-Conditioning Contractors—National Association (PHCC) Educational Foundation’s Super Foremen Workshop, June 23 and 24e to Viega Training Center in Nashua, New Hampshire.
Alter clarified that the title of foreman comes with a duty to contribute to the success of the company. “It’s your responsibility to get involved in the pre-planning process and never set foot on a job site if your team doesn’t have a solid project plan in place.” Alter further warned that “contracting business owners get concerned when they see a group of their high-budget employees talking in a meeting room all day. It’s your job to remind your boss that every dollar spent on planning can result in savings of 4-6 dollars on the project.
The class was sponsored and hosted by Viega, LLC. “Viega generously provides training space, meals and more to course participants,” said John Zink, vice president of development and communications for the PHCC Educational Foundation. “Their support reduces registration fees and enables employees of small businesses to participate in our program. It allows large companies to dispatch multiple foremen, allowing the management team in the field to operate from the same manual.
