Standards and Procedures
Built By Newkirk provides comprehensive and efficient construction management services. Our highly organized system is designed to ensure we meet the needs of our clients. This in turn shortens project time and allows smooth and effective delivery. We use the latest technologies to manage and communicate complicated concepts throughout the construction process for our trades. We also utilize three-dimensional renderings to communicate complex designs, ensuring that our clients' exact design specifications are met.
Built By Newkirk knows communication is a critical component to producing a great product. Weekly progress reports outlining completed work and scheduled work are available to clients and the design team. Project managers also hold weekly meetings with the project team to review progress and key elements of construction.
Built By Newkirk prides itself on providing the highest level of quality in the projects that we build. Our managers and field personnel continually monitor quality and construction-in-progress, ensuring workmanship meets Built By Newkirk's standards.
Participating early on in the design process with design professionals to coordinate key systems and infrastructure ultimately spares our clients unnecessary delays and costs.
Built By Newkirk are experts at managing form and function. We pride ourselves on our ability to successfully integrate mechanical, electrical, and structural elements without compromising your design. We can also suggest alternate building methods and materials to reduce costs.
We track the project on a weekly basis, including the current budget, cost to complete the project, and percentage complete. We offer Fixed Price contracts, Cost Plus, and Guaranteed Maximum Price contracts (GMP) as options.
Subcontractor Approval Process and Management
We have developed a proprietary bid analysis process to analyze and compare pricing per trade to validate costs and ascertain which trade is right for your project. Built By Newkirk has honed attorney-drafted agreements that have an attached detailed scope of work for each trade involved. This ensures that all subcontractors perform to the level of Built By Newkirk's standards.
Onsite Project Management
Built By Newkirk utilizes a full-time project manager or superintendent who oversees the entire on-site construction process for each job. Field personnel use the latest computer and communications technology for up-to-date information on schedules, budgets, and real-time design development decisions.
Your project will have its own unique characteristics and challenges. We constantly evaluate each project, offering real-time solutions to stay on course. We may discover a way to save you money, or you may have a sudden new need or desire you want the project to accommodate. Our experience and daily onsite presence often allows us to take advantage of creative opportunities that can only be discovered while under construction. This can improve the project, and even exceed your original expectations.
Critical Path Scheduling
We use critical path scheduling that effectively charts the progress of construction and provides a clear plan of action before actual work begins. This allows us to make adjustments on a daily basis and use time to our advantage - providing "real-time" management updates throughout all phases of construction. Critical Path Scheduling helps us secure materials in a timely fashion and provides a milestone for our clients to finalize their product choices.
