The challenge

Dallas Fire-Rescue is considered one of the finest fire departments in the world. Their facilities and technologies are considered world class with a rich history dating back to 1860.

The project scope required floor preparation, application of a moisture-vapor epoxy primer followed by a heavy duty polyurethane coating.

Dallas Fire-Rescue contracted Omega Industries to manage the product specification, application, project management and technical review.

Our Approach

The key issue/constraint for this project was the deadline could not be stretched. Therefore, in the planning stages our project team assessed major bottlenecks and developed best practice to maintain a high rate of production.

R

Every floor (3) of dorms were each grouped with 20 painters and 1 supervisor.

R

Omega’s made a decision to repaint walls wall instead of touching up.

R

All furniture was moved to the center of room and covered with drop sheets.

R

Any visible repair regardless if it was documented was repaired.

Creating solutions that work.

By first getting to know the project, we can deliver and execute a project strategy that exceeds our client’s expectations. Omega Industries delivered a large workforce with a strategy to overcome major production bottlenecks to complete the SMU

Interior painting project finished in 3 days.

By effective project management and planning to execute a highly productive painting crew, Omega were able to complete the project 2 days ahead of schedule. Proven strategies boosted the project timeline – resulting in adequate time for other preparations to take place prior to students entering their freshly painted dorms.

Breaking down our strategy

01

Eliminate Bottlenecks

The cost of admin involved in checking the defect list, enquire about missing items and reviewing the completion far outweighed the cost of additional paint and labor required to paint all walls. Our client, was thrilled for not only the rollout speed, but the additional value achieved for a fresh coat of paint in an room rather than small touch-ups.

02

Project Planning & Systems

Omega effectively divided the workforce across each level to complete works simultaneously, creating friendly competition between crews and allowing a production line mentality of painting dorms.
