As a General Contractor, our services begin with pricing. We bid out the job in predetermined packages, and verify the validity of the bids using our extensive cost histories. During actual construction, we manage the day to day activity on the job, including safety, quality control and adherence to the schedule.
We also provide bonding for the project and hold all subcontractor contracts, unless instructed to do otherwise by the owner. We have the ability to self-perform many aspects of our work, giving us greater control over the schedule and allowing us to truly drive the project.
Our Construction Management (CM) team is closely involved in the planning and design phase and typically joins the project at the same time as the architect. We provide input on constructability, budget, and schedule, which reduces costs. During the construction phase, our full-time supervision team is on-site, monitoring work to assure compliance with specifications, budget and schedule.
Our CM team also acts as a liaison to the owner providing the on-going status of the project, producing monthly progress reports which detail the status of the job from start to finish.
Our expertise also extends to Design-Build Construction. After first examining the specifications of the owner, we team with a design firm that has extensive experience in similar projects. This Design-Build team then acts as a cohesive unit with the designer developing the building’s specifications, while we perform the constructability review.
During construction, our Design-Build team then acts as the single source of information for all design and construction issues. This creates a more effective line of communication between everyone involved with the project, which leads to a more successful project delivery system.
As a Strategic Construction Partner, we operate as an extension of our client’s own staff, overseeing both project construction and facilities management. Within this role, we create a “construction program” in which we manage design review, budgeting, scheduling, quality control, safety, and security, as well as any other client requested items.
This project delivery method is best suited for an organization with multiple projects or facilities because it provides a consistent, measurable program through every phase of the construction process which can be extended to any location or facility.
