Thanks to the leadership of P1 Group Business Development Manager Tim Moore, P1 Group has been doing a lot more entertaining.
Tim has been instrumental in organizing events like P1 Fun@4 and fabrication shop tours that allow customers, prospects, and partners a chance to get to know us better.
The Fun@4 format is simply social. Guests are invited to have a few drinks, some food, and just hang out with select P1 associates. There’s also a pretty mean Cornhole competition with premium prizes for the winners.
“As Business Development Manager, part of my responsibilities is to meet with our trade partners in the A/E/C (architecture, engineering, construction) community every week,” Tim explained.
“By meeting with these folks, we get an idea of what projects they’re chasing, currently working on or have already done.”
Tim says the strategy for Fun@4 is to take that information and try to pair companies that have, want to or will work together on a project. Guests are usually invited in combinations representing A/E/C.
To date, P1 Group has welcomed Lytle Construction & BSA Lifestructures; Nabholz, Hoefer Wysocki, & WSP; McCownGordon, Henderson Engineering & HOK; BranchPattern, McCarthy, & Pulse Design Group; and Saint Luke's & ACI Boland Architects to the exclusive Fun@4 events.
We also like our colleagues to get a first-hand look at our capabilities.
Tim began organizing tours of our Lawrence, KS, fabrication shops in 2019, and to date Turner, McCarthy, Henderson Engineers, Burns & McDonnell, and Kendall have come through the shop.
Guests have been pretty amazed at our fabrication capacity.
Here are some of the comments we’ve gotten on our follow-up feedback forms.
“You guys are definitely going to be the top of our list when it comes time to make a call on a partner.”
“The tour reinforced my knowledge that P1 was an organized, sophisticated, and capable trade partner that could handle any problem or any size project.”
“I didn’t realize all of the prefabrication that P1 was performing in terms of Electrical scope. I also didn’t realize the capabilities P1 had in terms of custom steel fabrication.”
“Your team is clearly talented with integration of systems to help quicken the ability to install faster!”
In 2020, P1 Group will be offering more Fun@4, more tours, and adding educational opportunities at our training facility for our industry partners as well.
