How We Do It

How We Do It

Setting unmatched standards is the first step in how we do anything. Every piece of the puzzle has importance. Open communication and checks and balances are used as vital tools to strategically take account for each area of a project. This is the way we have done business since 1952.

Let us know how we can start a Tradition of Trust with you.

The Morrissey Standard

The Morrissey Process

There is a standard that Morrissey Construction Company has set for itself which is extremely high and is constantly evolving. We simply call it The Morrissey Standard. This internal desire for excellence has helped catapult us into a leadership position within the construction industry, which is where we intend to stay.

We strive to achieve this standard through specific processes that are reevaluated on a regular basis in which we complete projects in the areas of quality assurance, scheduling, budgets, and safety.

Many companies take a project and hammer it together with traditional documents and processes that have not had a second look for decades with the attitude of “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.”

We know the one-size-fits-all strategy does not produce quality results and that each potential project and client has specific wants and needs that should be addressed on an individual basis.

Budgets

Budgets

Not only are your investments important to you, but they are important to us. Morrissey Construction Company utilizes a scientific approach to budgeting which analyzes the client’s desired investment and compares it to similar projects we have completed.

With over 66 years of experience, it’s common for us to say: “we’ve built it.” This allows us to produce more than just a “guesstimate;” we produce a solid budget estimate backed by multiple completed projects.

Morrissey Construction also ensures you will receive the best “bang for the buck” by coordinating in-house brainstorming sessions to determine constructability and to identify potential value engineering options.

We have spent countless hours determining the most cost-effective means and methods to complete a project. This knowledge resource is fully utilized during all phases of the pre-construction process; so you can rest easy knowing your investment is just that – an investment.

Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance

Our Quality Assurance Program is yet another area where we set ourselves apart by focusing on the systematic measurement of seven categories; each with their own process of checks and balances. Not only are we concerned with the outcome of the project, we consistently focus on enhancing the process that is used to achieve the desired end result.

With a three-tier inspection process, we are able to turn projects over to our clients with the confidence that we have met and exceeded their desired outcome as well as our own stringent standards.

Safety

Safety

Safety is not to be taken lightly and is the personal responsibility of each individual as well as the company as a whole. Morrissey Construction Company is committed to the safety of every project from start to finish.

Superintendents are our eyes and ears on the job site and play a crucial role in leading by example. Each superintendent is OSHA and CPR/First Aid certified and is responsible for upholding safety standards by making sure all rules and evacuation plans are strictly enforced.

Onsite audits are performed weekly along with SIBA toolbox safety talks to ensure that safety is consistently on the forefront of everyone’s mind.

We are serious when we say, “Safety is our first priority.”

Scheduling

Scheduling

Scheduling can take many forms. While many companies view schedules as just another form to fill out or paper to push, Morrissey Construction Company views them as the lifeline of a project.

Logistics and communication are key to achieving a path to completion that has no barriers. We pride ourselves in optimizing productivity within strict time constraints without sacrificing the high-quality results in which our clients have come to know and expect.

In today’s world where “time is money,” we have been able to save clients millions of dollars with a well thought out, well communicated and consistently updated plan.
