By offering these services in-house, Battle Creek brings added value to the construction process, delivering significant savings to our customers. We operate the latest computerized drafting software to produce professional design drawings that enable our customers to visualize the final product.
Careful planning prior to the start of construction provides the foundation on which every subsequent step is based. Addressing critical details during preconstruction frequently results in fewer construction-phase changes, reduced construction time, and cost savings. It also ensures that the finished product meets the client's needs.
For the best results, we work closely with the client and design team. We develop and maintain accurate construction cost estimates as well as analyze scheduling, materials, building systems, and construction methods. We also get input from our in-house experts in such disciplines as mechanical and electrical systems, foundations, structural detailing, and purchasing.
The involvement of Battle Creek Construction professionals during this planning stage ensures continuity between preconstruction and construction, so that decisions made during project planning are accurately implemented in the field.
Whether Cost Plus or Stipulated Fee, Battle Creek is well respected by our customers for our effective and timely general contracting services. We provide attention to detail, cost control, and accurate scheduling on each and every project.
Our construction management services include overall planning and coordination of projects from inception to completion. We produce functionally and financially viable solutions to our projects, ensuring our customer's satisfaction. These services are often provided for a fixed fee but can also be provided for a percentage of the total project cost.
Our relationships with architects and engineers enable us to provide turnkey solutions for our customers. Doing it all provides a single point of accountability and promotes teamwork. Customers alway benefit from this approach.
When our customers have a high volume of small construction projects, Task Order Contracting (TOC) is often an effective solution. Combining our pre-construction processes with execution through general contracting, we refer to this as relationship-based contracting. This contract method is usually carried out through a multi-year, term contract.
Design and development of a new facility is a major investment. In an effort to support our customers continued satisfaction, Battle Creek offers long-term facilities maintenance solutions. A building and its systems, when properly maintained, will last longer and operate more effectively.
