Our Approach

Bringing our steel team early into the project brings multiple advantages. We collaborate with clients, partners, and subcontractors to determine the best courses of action for everyone, not just our team. By utilizing our unique approach, we develop successful project action plans.

Value Engineering Ideas

Our experienced team heads an organized effort to reduce total project costs without compromising on the functional and value objectives of the client.

Assembly Opportunities

We work side-by-side with our trusted fabrication and engineering partners to develop deliberate assembly plans. By doing so, we limit the amount of time spent on field installation and create a more efficient erection plan.

Detection Meetings

Our steel teams hold clash detection meetings to determine inconsistencies in the BIM Modeling process. This allows for constructability issues to be resolved before construction begins, saving heavily on costs and time.

Pre-Planning Activities

Pre-Planning begins immediately following the award of a project. Our team engages our fabrication and design partners to cover all facets of each phase in the construction process.

Early Lock-in of Material Pricing

We engage our suppliers early to secure material pricing and develop an advanced bill of materials. This reduces the fluctuation of costs and ensures our projects will be supplied with the proper resources.
