“From our PX to our PM to our Super, they each had one common theme-if we could do 15 First Bristol projects a year, it would be great! When I challenged them as to why, they responded with: (a) they completely understand that time is money; (b) they make decisions and stand by them; (c) they provide clear direction to the design team; (d) they are fair and reasonable with changes; (e) they process and pay the requisitions in a timely manner; and (f) they create a positive team environment that instills a collaborative mindset.
