Hello from South Texas!

First off, thank you for welcoming me to this forum. Hopefully this will be a great tool in the success of our small start up effort to the construction clean up field. I recently was offered 3 new construction builds from a builder who was struggling with the current vendor to meet expectations....

My wife and I took this opportunity to jump into something that we always talked about but never took action. Well, as of today, we are all in! This new home builder would like to give us three new contruction builds that has a 4 phase clean up pattern. Compensation based on phases and of course anything in between that falls out of the scope will be asked to be billed seperately.

With this said, I am confident in keeping up with the work, but the million dollar question is, what to pay my lead helper. This person will be reporting to the site superintendant and meeting his expectations on a daily basis.

Now, being familiar with the PMG process and a project coordinator myself in the oilfield, I can tell you that this particular issue has me stumped. This isnt a typical time and material job since baseline will be funded by me. More like a Bid Job. But instead, I am paying a person directly and not just a vendor. Just a little more personal.

So, my question to this community if obvious. Compensation and accountability?

How can I get the most value out of someone who wont milk the clock and deserves to be compensated fairly?

I could really use some guidance in this industry. I can sleep walk a budget in my market conditions, but havent a clue in this business....

Can anyone post a baseline for me to evaluate?
