Conceptual Engineering and Budgeting

Partnering early with our clients we can help determine the feasibility of a project, before moving further into the project. We can provide advice on the design, scope and size of a project. Then we turn the ideas into a conceptual budget for the client to make sure that the numbers work. Northcentral Construction has an excellent track record our preliminary budgets being very accurate to the final construction budget.

Pre-Construction Planning and Assistance

Teamwork, analysis, and proactive planning during pre-construction yield tremendous benefits during construction.

  • Cost Estimating: Continually updated budgets and schedules
  • Value Engineering: Constructability Reviewsto avoid delays and cost overruns
  • Project Scheduling / Phasing: Thoughtful site logistics plus means and methods planning that minimize disruptions and maximize productivity
  • Long-Lead Time Procurement
  • Bid Solicitation: Clear bid packages to ensure well-prepared subcontractors and avoid issues

Value Engineering

We complete a thorough review of the plans and client’s needs for the project, conduct a extensive options analysis, and generate creative options for modification to the project that allowus to bring projects within budget while meeting all the clients’ needs.

Design Build Services

Design-Build is an integrated delivery process where Northcentral Construction (NCC) is the single source, with absolute accountability for both design and construction. We develop close working relationships among the design and construction professionals. Working as one team, under the direction of an experienced project manager, NCC is able to control safety, quality, cost, schedule, and final delivery to ensure project success.

Construction Management

Construction Managers advocate for the owner throughout the planning, pre-construction, construction, and post-construction phases. The Construction manager is responsible for all phases of the project including; safety management, quality management, program review, cost estimating, value engineering, Constructability Reviews, preliminary scheduling, bid phase management, managing and controlling all construction operations, document control, submittal management, cost control and contingency management, change management, management of payment applications, construction schedule management, daily field coordination, meetings and meeting minutes, contract management, correspondence and communication management, close out, and commissioning.

General Contracting

As the At-Risk general contractor, on fixed cost projects, we are employed by the client, on the advice of the architect or engineer. We first assess the project-specific documents (referred to as bid, proposal or tender documents) and in some cases conduct a site visit to get a better understanding of the project. Depending on the project delivery method, NCC will submit a fixed price proposal or bid, cost plus price or an estimate.   Once we are chosen for the job at the given price we are responsible for completion of the project for that cost unless there are change orders approved by the client.   As the general contractor we are responsible for providing all of the material, labor, equipment and services necessary for the construction of the project. The general contractor hires specialized subcontractors to perform all or portions of the construction work.  Responsibilities may include applying for building permits, securing the property, providing temporary utilities on site, managing personnel on site, providing site surveying and engineering, disposing or recycling of construction waste, monitoring schedules and cash flows, and maintaining accurate records.

Project Supervision

Field supervisors play a major role in every construction company and every construction project. They are the frontline managers on the job, directly supervising workers and other field supervisors. They are both the engine and the anchor of the construction team, driving it toward effectiveness and efficiency, and stabilizing it with consistency and good judgment. To fill this role, field supervisors need more than experience in the field. They also need management skills in problem solving, planning, estimating, safety supervision, scheduling, controlling costs and resources, and, perhaps most important, managing people.It is the superintendent's job to make sure everything is on schedule including flow of materials, deliveries, and equipment. They are also in charge of coordinating on-site construction activities.
