Sha Dinkel's formal role is "Project Manager" for Sherwood Country Club’s new construction-aka the “superintendent”.
His role in the development cycle is, broadly speaking, to oversee the construction—as it happens. As the projects takes its flight, it's Sha's oversight to manage “on the job progress”.
Another way to describe his role is summed up through the expression Tom uses—
"Every room, Every house, Every day"
The construction process of every home involves composition. And with the scope and the massive structures that are built in Sherwood, extreme oversite at all levels is necessary—particularly out in the field—which is Sha’s primary office—with his ‘filing’ system in the back of his truck.
With projects of such scope, planned tracts and budgetary constraints, the management of pace and progress is not only necessary, but vital. In order to oversee the execution of the blueprints, every last detail must be committed to memory and communicated masterfully to subcontractors and laborers.
Making sure that everything is on time and in supply for the crew is largely based on crew selection—as well as a touch of faith; which is precisely why vendor selection is so important during budgetary planning. A late “moment frame” or a short supply “bituthene” can be a costly delay for the entire project affecting the bottom line and approved funding.
On top of the managing the composition, She speaks fluent Spanish—thereby, bridging any gap lost in translation while interpreting the structural and architectural plans. Often, the projects' complexity involve different subsets of different crews, contractors and specialists. Ease of interpretation is a necessary asset.
In order to get to the completed project, Sha has to arrange and be present for the numerous standard building inpections. Many are unique to California’s rugged—sometimes moving—terrain.
The management of moving parts and the flow of the actual construction is only part the role of Project Manager. He also must coordinate and guarantee the “code” inspection by MEPs, structural engineers, and county inspectors—another reason for the directive— “Every room, Every house, Every day”.
Blueprints are not to be “loosely interpreted”. Quite the opposite. They are written and printed specifically provide the precision needed to complete the structure through time. They also have their own language—without room for interpertation.
Sha speaks translates the language of the conceptual plans fluently to be executed – from concept to completion.
And in Sha’s own words, “From Concept to Completion, things change”
