J&J is well suited to this highly collaborative effort which expedites the design and construction process and creates a collective team composed of the general contractor, architect, and engineers. Our corporate pillars – transparency, team-centric, relationship-focused and team empowerment – are parallel to the design-build and design-assist methods which engage the client throughout the decision-making process and provides an open book environment to create the overall best value for the project. Additionally, at J&J we have meticulously built our internal teams to include several project managers with strong architectural and design backgrounds – adding an additional layer of understanding and cohesiveness.
J&J prefers to get involved in a project early, typically during the design and planning phase. This allows us to bring our construction expertise to the table well before the start of construction. Throughout this process, we work hand in hand with the client and architect to ensure the final design, schedule, and cost of work are completely consistent with the owner’s project objectives. Utilizing our services listed below during the important preconstruction phase minimizes both owner risk and the chance of unexpected surprises.
- Site survey
- Systems analysis
- Design-build options
- Constructability review
- Value engineering
- Comprehensive subcontractor and vendor pricing
- Identification of product availability and potential long lead items
- Bid abstracts
- Schedule development
- Permit procurement
Once preconstruction is finalized, permits are secured and on-site activities commence. Construction services encompass weekly project meetings, management of critical path schedule, cost control, cash flow forecasting, project accounting, insurance monitoring, site safety compliance, and other crucial risk management project controls.
Each project has its own unique set of parameters, which can include security protocol, operational hours, facility rules & regulations, safety compliance, IT interface, and the protection of proprietary physical and intellectual property. As a strategic partner, we work together with our clients to help identify their unique project variables and to carefully coordinate those aspects throughout the course of construction.
