Project ManagementNexlink has extensive experience managing large wireless deployments on both a national and regional basis, and have developed proven processes for managing network engineering, specifying and procuring equipment, construction services and commissioning of infrastructure projects.
Our project management tracking processes— in place to launch and manage all types of wireless communication projects—are developed, adjusted and monitored in-house, so every person throughout the organization complex is both trained and familiar with the steps we put into place to ensure the success of our work. Through these established processes we are able to customize our full menu of turn-key services per project; thereby enhancing our abilities to effectively and accurately develop a solution that is tailored to your individual needs and objectives.
Our procurement and material handling approach provides necessary accountability of materials and equipment to support construction of wireless sites. Nexlink utilizes its Procurement System (Timberline) to maintain all data in one, central database from which purchasing intelligence and supplier data management activities will be performed. This approach serves to encompass complete project processes, and facilitates the actions deemed necessary for the successful execution of total materials management and control.
Nexlink maintains a dedicated Construction Manager (CM) in all markets to coordinate directly with the Project Manager, Site Acquisition Manager, RF Engineers, Material Managers and Construction crews. The CM has full responsibility for overseeing and ensuring the success of all construction activities, and publishes weekly status reports on the progress of the build-out.
Our primary decision criteria as to when we utilize internal labor resources versus subcontractor craft resources is determined by schedule performance, project scope and skill set needs. Our objective is to achieve all schedule dates with certainty; our focus during the construction phase is safety, quality and schedule. We are not distracted by layers of subcontracting administration, multiple bid walk cycles, bidder’s conferences, bid analysis and contract negotiations. We focus on moving forward to put sites on the air.
With project managers located nationally, we have tremendous depth of both local and regional expertise and resources; and our team has an intellectual database of experience spanning every discipline.
Project Management is a distinct, core competency of Nexlink—not an “add on” service provided only in specific locations—designed to bring only the most credible and reliable wealth of information and resources to your next wireless telecommunications project.
