OPT engaged Watchdog to oversee their transition into their new, larger space in Monroe, NJ. The new facility would be a mixture of warehouse and office space to house their entire staff.
As the current leadership staff had never undergone such a transition, Watchdog was relied upon heavily to execute the project from start to finish. Our team provided a full scope of project management services and provided a single point of contact for the entire duration of our engagement.
The preconstruction phase was extremely important as design had to be precise to ensure that OPT’s large buoys could be shipped to and from their warehouse facilities. Our team was on site often to ensure that the loading docks and racking equipment in the warehouse were properly equipped to meet the client’s needs in an effort to limit issues post-occupancy.
From day one, our team developed a comprehensive budget and schedule and held all project team members accountable to ensure that OPT’s best interests were protected and their goals were achieved.
