    Hiring of a Construction Team to act as CM or EPC isn't working - its a joke and costing Enviva excessive money

    They offerwhat seems to be a higher than normal salary , but inst after expenses Enviva believes they can save money by acting as their own CM / EPC / GC firm as is attempting to create one ____ but have had no success on projects to date. It seem to be that Contractors on past and present projects have hit them up with Change Orders ( because of changes and ill defined scope ) which they believe they can better manage themselves.


    Very high turn over of direct hire Construction management personnel on all (2) projects in the past year. Actual project starts dates are delayed for 6 months plus and relocation to job sites delayed . Employee must pay their own expenses to stay in Raleigh while the project is delayed, or drive 60 - 150 miles( 1 way ) from jobs sites to Raleigh to report to work each day ( with no reimbursement ) if they relocate to Job sites and project is delayed. Projects that are not out of the ground yet are already over budget , money is being transferred from one project to another to other projects to make financials look good . 2 projects already funded will likely be over budget prior to completion , seeing as they are already forecast to exceed the budget and are transferring money . There was a huge push for hiring in Raleigh in 2014 and it appears to have been to meet a quota ( possibly for tax credits or IPO ) and not based on actual project needs ,, ground breaking , or actual project start dates . There is little or no direction provided to project teams, No management in place to provide any direction to teams. Only 2 people at Enviva that were involved with previous projects over the past years are currently with the company. Turnover of new hires - PM , construction managers and staff is very high over past 12 months . Most existing salaried Construction Team employees believe they will not have a a job after completion of their current project assignment , and are seeking other jobs already, But some are retirees and are just riding this gig out and dont care about the future. The company expects to hire people and require them to relocate their family to Raleigh, simply to assign them to job sites elsewhere basically full time . They will not to pay for travel home to any location other than Raleigh and they refuse to pay perdiem at the job site , but say they will pay actual expenses out of town. Overtime is expected with no reimbursement IMO , The company is hiring excessively large teams ( 10-15 people) to manage 100M projects , there will be limited or no work for these people after completion of each project Enviva thinks they can purchase equipment smarter , cheaper and t more efficiently or cost effectively than Large Contractors that do it all the time. But is inefficient in doing so.

    Advice to Management

    These are small Capital projects . Hire an experienced CM firm , GC or EPC and let them have complete responsibility for the projects and assume the risk. A team of no more than 3 people at Enviva should be required to manage this size project if the design design is firm . Enviva does not have the experienced personnel or procedures to manage and direct 30 + employees in Construction Management ( more in Engineering ) and should not take on procurement and ownership of all Equipment packages. Let Contractors carry the risk . Act as a professional Ownerand hire an Engineering Company, EPC or GC and focus on driving them.
