We work with the owner and the design team in the early phase of drawings, to provide value engineering and suggestions for siting, constructability, budget and scheduling. Within our Preconstruction services, we act as a value-added member of the design team, enhancing the design segment of the job by providing accurate pricing information and marrying the budget to the actual design.
By incorporating items such as sustainability and maintenance costs into our design review, our suggestions can often save the owner money well into the future. Our pre-construction team works to reduce the overall project cost by saving time, labor and expenses. The result is a building designed to the owner’s specifications, within budget and with no surprises.
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 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.
Frontline’s culture is one of collaboration and cooperation. This culture provides us with the ability to listen to our clients, subcontractors and vendors in an effort to discover the best means possible to provide the team with an outstanding construction experience. This ability to listen enables us to maintain successful working relationships with clients, subcontractors and vendors while implementing
cutting-edge technology on our projects. One such innovation is the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM). Our team has extensive project experience and clearly
understands the value that BIM can add to the outcome of a project.
Our team’s expertise will benefit the project’s planning and construction management process – from the pre-bid phase through the commissioning phase. This is accomplished by executing a properly guided team approach and by harvesting and transforming the data embedded in BIM models into valuable information. BIM can be utilized through the full life cycle of a project.
