Vice President of Business Development
Wayne Hopper, Vice President of Business Development
Wayne started with Precision Erection Company/Branscum Construction 25 years ago as an estimator/project manager.
As Precision’s Vice President of Business Development, Wayne identifies projects and customers requiring steel erecting services fitting the company’s experience and expertise in safely erecting bridge crane buildings, industrial and warehouse projects and clear span hangars and field houses and exposition centers and then for each project applies historical manhours to quantity takeoff to arrive at competitive labor and equipment costs. These are extended from a manhour loaded schedule for which durations are dictated by crew sizes suited for project dimensions and the owner’s schedule.
In addition, Wayne’s responsibility is to identify and work with quality and safety conscious subcontractors as needed to help in meeting schedules and to work with crane and equipment vendors to include properly sized equipment required to safely erect the required structural members for the project.
These roles culminate in providing a proposal to the customer that clearly describes the offer and scope and schedule approach and after the project is won to transfer the information essential for the project management team to execute the project.
