When you land a sizeable lighting and power job($500k and up) what are the first few tasks a PM needs to do?

Have a pre-construction meeting with estimator, field supt, job foreman. Go through all plans, specs, quotes, schedules.
This is the time to flush out any mistakes, omissions from the estimator, bad quotes that don't cover scope or price escalations.
The estimator needs to break the job down into work codes for management, set up schedule of values for billing, write PO's for quoted items and subcontracts, etc....
