SIXTEEN YEARS OF
Prime General Contractors LLC provides constructability reviews of all plans and specifications. Our recommendations increase the quality and constructability of systems, methods and materials.
We will provide detailed modifications that will better reflect common practices in the subcontracting marketplace. This familiarity and expertise both drives down subcontractor pricing and improves the work product.
Whether a "design-build" or "negotiated team" Prime General Contractors LLC understands owner-value is delivered by combining the strengths of the architect and builder at the earliest stages of design.
Construction & Proposal Request Estimating
We begin by meeting with the ownership and architectural team to confirm the building program. Together we'll develop a detailed understanding of the project objectives. It's critical to collaborate and assemble a baseline control budget utilizing a combination of historical data, subcontractor input and our own experience to understand the overall scope of work.
From the objectives subcontractor scope outlines are assembled. The pre-planning efforts noted above will deliver a higher quality, more detailed scope outline for subs.
We'll consider design modifications, alternative materials systems and life-cycle cost analysis to lead the project toward a desired financial outcome.
This design-phase cost analysis provides the optimal approach to avoid unexpected costs and re-design efforts.
General Construction & Construction Mgmt
Good construction management is proactive. Prime General Contractors LLC emphasizes in-depth construction planning throughout the project.
We underpin the entire process with seamless communication, timely resolution of issues and a forward-focus to anticipate problems and take pre-emptive corrective action when needed.
Prime General Contractors LLC's objective is to minimize undue financial risk for you. This includes pervasive and continuous budget, cost and quality controls.
As your general contractor or construction manager we will do whatever it takes to meet your project objectives.
Startup & Commissioning
When every punch list item is complete, Prime General will review all submittals for compliance with the contract requirements. A list of all outstanding items such as warranties and certifications, as-built drawings and final lien waivers will be generated.
After all required items have been submitted and all work has been completed, we will review the final billing for compliance with the requirements of your contract, the general conditions, and specific requirements set forth by you, our valued client.
The efficient and cost-effective operation of a new building or new space is dependent on a structured and fully-developed program covering systems start-up and commissioning.
Your Prime Team will take responsibility for completing the commissioning program including the integration of all project systems. Your plan will consist of:
Approval of operational condition of all systems prior to testing
Testing all equipment and systems
Procedures for accepting the facilities and turnover for operations
Training owner’s facility management staff
Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) Contracts
A GMP contract establishes a price for a specific scope of work, that cannot be exceeded. GMP contracts are used on fast-track projects or when the design is incomplete at the time construction starts.
Prime General Contractors LLC excels at leading GMP project teams. We emphasize collaboration with the design team from the earliest stages of the project.
Our objective will be to control building costs, manage scope and schedule, and value engineer wherever possible.
