Careers
ESTIMATE
- Pre-Qualification
- Takeoff
- Plan/Specification Review
- Value Engineering

Our team of skilled CAD technicians and estimators begins a thorough analysis and review for each project. By thoroughly studying the plan, specifications, and scope, true costs can then be determined which helps identify discrepancies and challenges early on. Every estimate is accompanied with a takeoff drawing and a scope of work which allows each estimate to be as transparent as possible.

Job acceptance
- Review Final Plans & Specifications
- Review Scope
- Review Schedule & Durations
- Project Award

Once awarded, the project receives a final audit of the plans, specifications, and scope of work. The review ensures the contracted scope meets customer expectations. All findings are reviewed with the customer and will be acknowledged prior to the construction and scheduling phases.

job preperation
- Create Concrete Drawings
- Coordinate Shop Drawings
- Review For Construct-ability
- Create Job List
- Hand off to Construction Team

The Pre-Construction phase begins with our CAD team doing a thorough review of the plans and shop drawings. We address plan and construct-ability conflicts prior to mobilizing our field crews which eliminates downtime waiting for solutions. Our CAD team creates concrete only drawings for the crews using a blend of CAD and 3-D modeling software. Then we generate a job list which includes materials, pre-build items, and equipment to be delivered to the site. From the drawings we are also able to layout a detailed schedule to ensure project timelines are met. Finally we have a job start up meeting and hand the project off to the construction team.

PROJECT INTAKE

- Pre-Qualification - Schedule - Scope

Every project submitted to the project refinement process will include the project plan, specifications, and a scope of work. With this detail, our team of skilled CAD technicians and estimators begins a thorough analysis and review for each project.

Plan takeoff

- Takeoff - Plan Review - Spec. Review - Material Calculations

Our team of CAD technicians and estimators generate a comprehensive plan takeoff consisting of the total linear feet, square footage, and full bill of materials. By thoroughly studying the provided plan, specifications, and scope, the plan takeoff assists in identifying any discrepancies and challenges early on. A true cost can then be determined.

Estimate Generation

- Estimate - Senior Project Review - Assign Labor & Equipment - Value Engineering

Each estimate is generated with consideration of all scope updates identified during the plan takeoff. All estimates include materials, linear feet, square footage, and labor to allow our team to provide clients with the most transparent quote possible. Every detail is meticulously examined through an extensive internal review. Any discrepancies or change requests are discovered during the estimate review and corrected before final pricing is set. Through extensive planning, collaboration, and review our team is able to provide the client with a quote they can feel confident in, and that demonstrates our ability to deliver accurately.

Project Award

- Project Award - Review Schedule & Durations - Review Scope

Once awarded, the project receives a final audit of the plans, specifications, and scope of work is completed to ensure the contracted scope meets customer expectations. All findings are reviewed with the customer and will be acknowledged prior to the construction and scheduling phases.

Job Preparation

- Review Plan - Identify Discrepancies - Coordinate Shop Drawings - Review For Constructability

Construction Process

Site Prep
- Presite Visit
- Established Sequencing/Timelines
- Staging Area
- Safety Review
- Total Station Surveying Confirmation
- Construction Process Begins

All legwork to prepare the job site for our crews is taken care of in this phase. Our Total Station experts utilize our technology to ensure a precise layout of the site. All materials are delivered and staged. This legwork allows our field team to hit the ground running and avoid delays upon arriving on site.

Construction Process

DELIVERY
- Pre-Pour Checklists
- Set Embedded Items with Total Station
- Central Dispatch
- Confirm Locations Prior to Pouring

Finally, forms are set and the site is ready for concrete. Here is where our SOLID PROCESS meets the SOLID RESULTS. The consistent preparation allows our field crew to focus on delivery. Utilizing the detailed shop concrete drawings, job site issues are eliminated up-front and confusion from plan inconsistencies are reduced. Our job site foreman personally ensures that each pour is moving ahead as scheduled, from start to finish.

Construction Process

Finalize
- Final Review
- Punchlist
- Quality Audit
- Customer Followup

Our last steps include a thorough quality audit, site cleanup and an “After Action Review’ to ensure customer satisfaction. The project is then deemed complete, and all lessons learned are utilized for future projects.
