Q & A WITH ZAIDA MARIN
What are your company's keys to success?
- Organization and execution: Organization is the foundation of our business, allowing us to complete every project in a timely and efficient manner. Organization has helped reduce costs and limit mistakes.
- Knowledge: Knowing all of the ins and outs of our industry has been a big key to our success. Knowledge of our codes, materials, prices of materials and labor, products and many other components of our business have made us successful. Without the proper knowledge we would be at a disadvantage in all aspects.
- Passion in our craft: We take great passion in our craft. We care about our work being perfect and satisfying our clients' expectations. Our passion allows us to take great pride in our finished product.
How has your company adapted to the COVID Pandemic?
Our company, like many others, has adapted to the requirements of keeping the spread of COVID to a minimum. One of the requirements we asked of our employees is to limit their time on job sites in order to keep exposure at a low risk.
To provide a safer working environment, our management team conducts health and safety risk assessments, health screenings every morning, and reviews any new guidelines that are required by health officials. We also have limited access across our team by conducting zoom meetings instead of in person meetings to limit contact and possible spread.
