Research project paper

You are the new project manager at Garden Decks of Beauty, a local company for the past 12 years in the Lexington, KY area.  Your first assignment will be for the Melrose family (Todd and Margo, plus two yippy dogs to drive the neighbors nuts) who moved into their new home two years ago and now wish to replace the 8’ by 3’ slab of concrete (the stoop) which their backyard facing French Doors step onto with a new luxurious deck area with hot-tub and accoutrements.  Their backyard is 80’ wide and 120’ deep and runs at a 5% slope straight down the back.  By the way, Todd and Margo are Iron Triangle lovers – Time/Cost/Quality.  Win them and you win their neighbors’ business.
