Facility Builders Construction Management
Facility Builders & Erectors, Inc. (FB&E) has been turning clients' visions into reality since 1993. Recognized for our expertise in Construction Management, FB&E enjoys working with its clients to find the best designed, most constructible, and most efficient solutions to meet their needs. This care results in satisfied customers, many of whom become our customers for life. Successful projects don't just happen, they are a direct result of the cooperative efforts by the owners, designers, and builders.
Facility Builders and Erectors knows that construction is not simply an end result, it is a process the entire team works through. To us, the project success is based on both the finished product and the process. Our core values are Integrity, Enthusiasm, Safety, and Teamwork. These values are applied to every project we touch and how we run our business. We have earned the reputation of being trustworthy from concept to completion and of being the "go-to" firm in a variety of industries and communities. Talk to us about our Exception Project Delivery program to deliver the right construction solution for your project.
We have built structures throughout the West utilizing many types of construction and for a diverse set of industries. Our labor force is skilled at constructing a number of specialized buildings and in providing a comprehensive set of extra management services. We go the extra mile to ask questions, to seek and offer choices, and to develop a constructible program.
The greatest strength of FB&E is in Construction Management. This means that we oversee all aspects of the project from conceptualizing Owner's vision through final delivery. Much effort is spent before building commences such as estimation, constructability analysis, scheduling, lender support, and permit processing. We proactively manage safety, the construction site, and any Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) in effect.
For the entire project duration we communicate continuously and transparently with all involved parties, especially owner and architects, to manage risk and to correct issues at conceptual or design phases rather than after they have materialized in the building. We attend to every last detail, including helping with disbursements of progress payments, lien release, insurance certification, and project commissioning.
Facility Builders is expert in all delivery methods. We assume the role of General Contractor for projects that implement the traditional approach known as Design-Bid-Build. In this delivery method both preliminary and detailed architectural drawings are completed (by someone else) prior to submitting construction out for bids. We become involved if and when our bid is accepted. This limits our opportunity for providing pre-construction services, but risks of any change orders are borne by the Owner.
An alternative delivery method is called Design-Build, and in this case FB&E assumes the role of Design Builder. Here, we are responsible for both the design and the construction, working in close collaboration with an architectural team that we select. The cost is established after preliminary drawings are done but before detailed drawings, and then risks of change orders are borne by us. This approach affords a comprehensive solution yet puts the project on a fast track; we can perform constructability analysis and choose materials early on for efficiency.
Types of Construction Projects
Facility Builders is well equipped to provide all varieties of projects. We delivery turnkey buildings created from the ground up, but not all solutions are so straightforward. For instance, changing renters in commercially leased buildings often entails making Tenant Improvements, for which interior space is altered while keeping the shell the same. Sometimes we are hired to expand or modify facilities while they are occupied. Still other project types are public works and structures for providing alternative energy solutions such as compressed natural gas and electric vehicle charging stations.
Moreover, FB&E has what it takes to provide buildings with special characteristics, from office renovations to warehouses to recreation facilities. We can fulfill the requirements for large clear spans in aviation or aerospace hangars and crane loads or equipment foundations for industrial applications. One of our specialties is supplying and/or erecting pre-engineered Metal Buildings, sometimes as general contractor and other times as subcontractor.
We exhibit those intangibles that make a company great, such as clear and concise proposals, ability to communicate, constant onsite coordination and supervision, and excellent references. We anticipate issues and practice careful risk and safety management. Our insurance and bonding are of highest quality and value.
Our capabilities span a broad range. The projects we pursue cost anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000,000. We are equipped to develop sites as large as 40 acres and buildings that range from one to three stories and from 1,000 to 300,000 square feet. We are confident that we can meet and exceed your construction management needs.
