Working on behalf of the owners, our Construction Managers complete the project per the plans and specifications from the owners architect while maintain the schedule, managing the payment approval process and occupancy requirements.
All projects are managed by Iowa Concrete along with all our subcontractors through the "Procore" Project Management program we also grant access to the project owners to review pictures, schedules, change order management, and daily reports. We manage all disciplines related to construction project process including technology, materials management, government oversights, project design, and engineering.
Iowa Concrete General Contractor provides our clients with a lean team approach to total project coordination with leadership and accountability while assisting all entities involved with the building process to ensure quality and value while meeting the plans and specifications.
At Iowa Concrete General Contractor our design build method of project delivery is based on a proven series of process, whereby multiple parties including architects, engineers, designers, contractors and major subcontractors work collaboratively and communicate effectively to deliver high quality project results. From the inception of a project, owners and industry professionals work together towards a unified goal to insure that project costs are minimized, and delivery schedules are streamlined.
We have in-house architectural design services and combined with our Design Build process we bring the stakeholders together in the very early stages of development, keeping the end goals in mind and how we need to get there. We establish the steps necessary to capture our owners’ vision while continually aligning the design with the budget.
Our Design Build Project Delivery provides the following benefits:
Single Source of Accountability:
Having both the design and construction under a single source of responsibility we can drive the schedule and quality to fulfill the owner’s goals. We provide the coordination between the design and construction teams as well as managing the owner provided equipment and materials thus saving time and cost. This allows the owner to focus on their own current business needs and operations with a level of integration into the process that works for them.
Value for our customers is driven with early planning with effective communication with our design team, construction team and major contractors. When the design and the construction teams work together with a common goal, we can look at constructability, exploring alternative construction methods and materials used in the project early on. Our delivery method provides a continuous check on the budget to ensure we are capturing the vision and staying true to the budget to eliminate cost overrun driven by design.
If the schedule requires it design build construction can begin prior to the completion of the plans and specifications due to the integrated team approach. We can deliver the approval process in phases starting with site design and approval, while finalizing the foundation design allowing us to gain an early construction start. The full building design approval process can be continued while site work activities begin, and foundations are started. This method allows for a quicker start of the facility and earlier completion allowing for reduced project costs.
With design build delivery method the design, budget, quality, schedule, and expectations are defined early in the process. By providing the design solution we also take the responsibility of the construction documents and there by taking the responsibility of any errors or omissions within the documents avoiding conflicts between the design and construction teams.
Quality is not only in the end product. Quality is a core value for Iowa Concrete General Contractor from the planning of a project thru design, and execution. We manage the entire process carefully to avoid any miscommunications with our teams to deliver a superior product. Our "Procore" Project Management system always allows for full and current transparency with each member of the team. We take the owners expectations seriously and drive the quality and performance in the design and construction. It is our responsibility to meet your business needs and expectations in design and construction.
