A crucial component for the success of any project is thoughtful Project Management. From pre-planning to close-out, Tekton Construction Services is passionate about managing the entire process alongside our clients. Upon first meeting a client, our critical first step is to understand the client's goals, in order to understand how the project elevates and highlights the client's vision and business goals.
We focus on responsive Project Management. Responsive Project Management includes understanding a client's unique situation, which may be schedule-driven, jurisdictional, or include unforeseen circumstances. We view these situations as exciting problem-solving opportunities. With our diverse team of architects, engineers, project manager, schedulers, and construction management professionals, we can diligently address these particular situations, using a multi-disciplinary approach.
Our schedulers and project controls specialists have a reputation throughout the region for quality and thoroughness. Our services include strategies to manage scope, accurately and frequently evaluate costs, and manage risks.
A successful project requires that a realistic construction schedule is developed, monitored, and updated throughout a construction project. Our clients can use the schedule as a planning tool to help make intelligent, data-based decisions for the project. Tekton Construction Services draws on a deep pool of boots-on-the-ground construction experience to assist contractors in development, updating, and management of the schedule to greatly increase the probability of timely project completion.
Analyzing contractor’s schedules for conformance to the Contract Documents – and industry standards for construction scheduling – is critical. In addition to construction management directives issued by local, state, and federal government agencies, we assure that standards published by the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering International (AACEi), the Project Management Institute (PMI) and DCMA standards are also reviewed and upheld. We perform a rigorous and meticulous schedule analytics review process to provide actionable intelligence based on data and metrics. This review provides early warning signs of project failure and allows management to make corrective action earlier in the project to avoid disaster.
We are proud to be at the leading edge of technology in our fields of expertise. New technology and tools give our clients an advantage in an ever-advancing and fast-paced environment. Among these advancements is 4D scheduling. 4D scheduling takes a traditional critical path Gantt chart and merges it with the visual informational power of 3D building models. Each part of the 3D model is tied to a critical path schedule activity, which allows one to see the schedule in a time-phased, visual representation. This presentation method provides a more intuitive and natural way to understand the schedule for anyone without a scheduler’s expertise. It is an excellent tool to communicate complicated logic diagrams and Gantt charts to field personnel, executive management, and clients.
A construction project scope of work, sometimes called a statement of work, is like a playbook for every project. The scope of work tells a story. It includes the work to be done on a project, how the workers should complete the job, and who on the team is responsible for completing the different tasks on the project.
Preliminary design is the stage in which general project location and design concepts are determined. It includes all that is necessary to conduct a NEPA alternatives analysis and review process properly, but good preliminary design goes beyond that.
In construction, estimation is the process of forecasting the costs of building a structure and may span several phases of a project. A construction schedule is an entire blueprint of how a project will be executed and by when. It outlines project timeframes/ milestones and much more!
A set of documents that contain the scope of work, specifications, drawings, and general conditions for a project or job. Prospective contractors should be able to review the bid package and develop their cost estimates and schedules for the work.
