The 10,000 Hour Rule-What Drives Excellence

As we see it, a large number of Gwinnup professionals sit in cockpits.  Some of these control backhoes and bulldozers, others control helicopters.  No matter which piece of equipment, each Gwinnup employee is keenly aware of the responsibility they shoulder.  Lives can be at stake as well as millions of dollars of equipment.

Regardless of whether their work happens on the ground or in the air, each of our team of professionals follows the same exacting standards and guidelines that are integrated into our DECK process.

Each Gwinnup team member has a detailed work history documented with the company in our database. On each project, we use this database to match experience, skill and expertise and with the equipment and tasks.  This is the first step in providing the foundation we need to develop a comprehensive project blueprint, which in turn our DECK process utilizes to deliver successful outcomes.

The DECK process includes overall and daily planning, safety and QA requirements including:

  • Project Blueprint Development & Engineering
  • Work Module Planning
  • Pre-flight or pre-activity checklist
  • In-flight or in-job activities, work flow and risk management
  • Post activity checklist review
  • End of day summary analysis

Gwinnup requires that each of our professionals spend time with their team practicing and honing their skills.

Gwinnup has had only a single in-field accident and zero accidents involving construction equipment in nearly 12 years because we subscribe to the 10,000 hour rule philosophy.

This philosophy is embraced by many world champion athletes.   The 'rule' states that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to master a skill with world class ability.  Truly, practice and preparation makes for perfect outcomes.

In the spirit of this philosophy, we take the time to practice and to prepare as individuals and as a team.  This practice and preparation ensures that the work we do for our clients is firmly rooted in safety and unfolds into projects that are consistently on-time, on-budget, flawlessly coordinated and delivered without incident.

Take a look at some of our team hard at work preparing and practicing to achieve excellence.  For us, it is just another day at the office.
