The challenge

SMU is a nationally recognized university located in Dallas, TX. Their facilities team was confronted with a last-minute request to refresh all the dorm rooms located at the Ware Commons building before residents returned from their summer break in five days.

The project scope required wall patching as directed in a lengthy punch list and touch up painting only.

SMU was under immense pressure to deliver a quality result within the deadline. They partnered with Omega Industries to take on the responsibility of organizing materials, labor, and strategically planning the rollout.

Our approach

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

  • Every floor (3) of dorms was grouped with 20 painters and 1 supervisor.
  • Omega made the decision to repaint the wall instead of touching it up.
  • All the furniture was moved to the center of the room and covered with drop sheets.
  • Any visible repair, regardless of whether it was documented, was repaired.
