Prior to the start of the project the project superintendent is part of a project planning meeting that is chaired by the Project Manager. We have a formatted meeting agenda that is used for all projects. The issues discussed in the project planning meeting are scope of work. subcontracts/ purchase orders, self perform labor issues, materials, tools/ equipment to be used, mobilization, and scheduling. Our construction personnel are all certified in the product installation of materials furnished by A. C. Dellovade, Inc. All superintendents go through a four day training course on project administration, and four days of product installation updates. Our Foremen go through a two day training course on project operations and four days of product installation updates. Most of the field personnel are certified in CPR, First Aid, and AED. Each new employee, before commencing, work goes through a safety orientation and is provided a 32 point safety pocket reference guide. Our superintendents conduct a company wide site safety meeting weekly which is prepared by the Safety Director.
A.C. Dellovade, Inc has an assortment of manlifts, forklifts, and suspension scaffolds, and special scaffolding designed and utilized for our projects. We have certified scaffolding repair personnel on staff and all scaffolding is returned to our facility and reconditioned between projects. A. C.

All field supervisors are provided with product installation DVDs along with portable DVD players which they can utilize as a reference at any time during installation.
