Construction, Program & Project Management Services
Because of our broad construction experience, we are able to offer a wide array of Construction Services. We provide full Construction Management Services or any component thereof. Primary Construction Planning, Management & Administration services include:
• Defining issues and goals, setting objectives, planning and implementing strategy
• Coordinating the project staff and on-site activities
• Organizing and overseeing job-site construction administration and supervision
• Managing the procurement of contractors and suppliers
• Managing schedules, quality of work, and trades and payment requests
• Developing, monitoring, updating and communicating the schedule and its progress
• Establishing and maintaining communication of project with owner, architect and contractors
• Applying construction management tools and techniques for successful project completion
Our Construction and Project Managers
Construction Manager (CM) understands and implements project and construction management methodology. The CM is an effective communicator and fosters an atmosphere of trust. The CM focuses on what needs to be accomplished, when it needs to be accomplished and why it needs to be accomplished. The CM serves as a facilitator, group problem solver and participative decision-maker.
As a leader, our CM offers direction, vision, efficiency and values that foster results and focuses on the top line. He or she cultivates a management style that promotes speed within a structured system containing policies and procedures that focus on the bottom line.
Constructability and Value Engineering
Industria can assist reviewing construction processes from start to finish during the pre-construction phase to identify obstacles before a project is actually built to reduce or prevent errors, delays, and cost overruns. We believe "constructability" is the ease and efficiency with which the structure can be built. The more constructible a structure is, the more economical it will be. Constructability is in part a reflection of the quality of the design documents; where, if the design documents are difficult to understand and interpret, the project may be difficult to build. We can also offer value engineering as an organized effort directed at analyzing designed building features, systems, equipment, and material selections for the purpose of achieving essential functions at the lowest life-cycle cost consistent with required performance, quality, reliability, and safety.
In the design phase of building development, properly applied value engineering considers alternative design solutions to optimize the expected cost/worth ratio of projects at completion. Value engineering elicits ideas on ways of maintaining or enhancing results while reducing life-cycle costs. Industria can help to identify and evaluate changes that could result in increased functional value (including customer satisfaction) in the completed facility while reducing construction or operation and maintenance costs. Value engineering efforts can be scaled to the project size, complexity, and status. Industria believes value engineering efforts in the early stages of project design are best because early review affords greater savings and allows a change of direction, if appropriate, without affecting project delivery schedules. Emphasis is on obtaining maximum life cycle value for 'first-cost' dollars- the dollars budgeted for the project. If savings are identified, the project budget may be reduced, or the money can be reallocated, if justifiable, for features that would lend greater life cycle value to the building.
Industria continues to evaluate value engineering during construction because Industria's practical experience and purchase options can often generate substantial savings. The change may reduce the cost of construction or the life cycle cost of the building, but must not lessen building performance, design quality, safety, appearance, or ease of upkeep. Some owners offer the contractor a share of construction cost savings for fixed-price contracts. Value engineering goals for projects are often addressed in partnering agreements among the client, the various consultants, the construction contractors, and the end users.
