We also invite you to contact us to learn more about our high performance, “green” approach to quality, energy-efficient construction. With the many different facets involved in construction projects, choosing a construction firm can be a daunting task. Oliver Construction has been delivering superior results for nearly two decades and we know that it is our job to deliver results while minimizing risk for our clients. Whether you need a simple office build-out, redesign of corporate offices, or a ground-up construction project completed, our years of experience and finely-tuned construction management methods make sure that we deliver on time and on budget.
Our experienced construction team is committed to providing you with the creativity, reliability, safety and value you are looking for in the development and construction of your next structure. Whether you are looking to acquire your next real estate investment, re-position an existing property or embark on new construction, we deliver the services and resources you need to complete the project in a cost-conscious, time-effective and quality-driven manner. The staff at Oliver Construction provides Construction Management services for all types of construction projects. This type of service is integral to a successful project completion and includes but is not limited to the following types of services: Design-Build and Coordination with the Architect on initial design — Pre-construction Services — Subcontractor Bid Evaluations — and Bid Awards.
Oliver Construction has a full range of construction capabilities including project management, field supervision, and the ability to self-perform work. Our construction professionals have worked with numerous architects and engineers, as well as those in-house, delivering high value construction as a design-build team on hundreds of projects. With this depth of experience, OCI can offer price commitments early in the design process and the fast-tracking of construction schedules – saving our clients both time and money. OCI’s own in-house crew of building professionals are able to deliver self-performing work on general and interior construction projects, ensuring the quality and timely completion of all work. Few companies can compete with OCI when it comes to providing a better control of quality and coordination along with meeting budget requirements. This also provides OCI with the capability to perform “fast-track” work with our own staff, as well as to consistently adhere to safety and quality procedures.
Additionally, one niche that our clients continue to call on OCI for is our experience at working in occupied spaces, minimizing interference to operations and limiting downtime of business operations.
When considering the design-build process, rather than following the traditional design-bid-build process, you get a seamless delivery method that reduces risk through single-source accountability and delivery. Our clients choose Oliver Construction as their single source for their design-build projects.
Why is Design-Build a More Efficient Solution?
- You get an early cost input from the contractor on conceptual design ideas.
- A Guaranteed Maximum Price can be determined early, right after project scope is established and schematic drawings are completed.
- Time can be saved due to potential for parallel tracking of certain processes.
- The propensity for high cost change orders is minimized or even eliminated.
- Construction can begin while design is being put in place.
- The risks are minimized throughout the entire process and that leads to lower costs and faster delivery for our clients.
OCI’s unique design-build process and our ability to customize projects based on the complexity and need for cost-effective and highly functional buildings has yielded unmatched results for our clients. Oliver Construction’s reputation is based on reliability, experience, thoroughness and personal attention to our clients’ needs – and in the highly competitive general contracting and construction field, these are critical traits that a construction company must possess in order to deliver the results that you expect.
During construction, OCI is regularly on-site to monitor progress, talk to contractors and offer suggestions to make sure that your project is moving forward according to plan. We help facilitate communication among every project team member, anticipate potential problems and take decisive action when necessary. Our hands-on approach means we pay close attention to the day-to-day issues that ultimately dictate the project’s success.
OCI institutes strict cost and quality control measures during the construction phase of every project we manage. By serving as a “checks and balances,” we not only make sure that your project is completed on time, but also that the final product meets your standards and budgetary criteria. We carefully review every invoice to confirm that what is being paid reflects the work that was agreed upon, as well as the work that has actually been completed. Change orders are checked for their accuracy and necessity, and our “schedule of values” approach dictates that payments are made only when costs are actually incurred.
Every day on a project represents valuable time and money — that is why Oliver Construction makes sure your project advances in a realistic, logical and aggressive manner from start to finish.
As owner’s representative, Oliver Construction works as an integrated partner with a client by becoming an extension of the owner’s staff. The property owner allows Oliver Construction to guide the project through the entire lifecycle while managing and protecting the owner’s interests at all times.
Once your drawings are finalized, Oliver Construction acts on your behalf to expedite the plans through all appropriate public agencies. We work to make the approval process seamless and as favorable to your interests as possible.
Oliver Construction provides owners with the value-added premium services and resources needed to ensure success across all aspects of a project. For an owner whose team may not have the required depth of resources in-house to look after each project segment, Oliver Construction truly serves as an extension of their staff. By having Oliver Construction function as an owner’s advocate throughout the construction process, OCI allows clients to focus on their core business operations without distraction.
Oliver Construction’s experienced in-house staff of building professionals work together to make sure that a project is truly coordinated before even early stage construction or demolition begins. Our project planning and management specialists handle all aspects of a construction project from in-house project management, including space planning and technical schematics through architecture endeavors to full on-site project management for even the smallest of jobs. These skills are critical in ensuring the quality and timely completion of any project successfully. From full coordination with our team of design and construction professionals to code reviews and coordination with permitting agencies, our job is never done until the project is completed. Our goal is to provide our clients with the highest quality result at the most reasonable cost, within the specified timeframe – but that’s not all. Our job is to protect you — our client — during the vast and complicated process that makes up a construction project. OCI is skilled at analyzing architectural designs, CAD plans, and value engineering, allowing our clients to keep costs in line without sacrificing the original objective.
