To achieve each project’s goals, we have
established guidelines that we follow starting from the pre-construction,
budgeting and conceptual phase and carrying through the final
project documentation. Each step is clear, concise, direct
in its goal, and produces the desired end result.
The number of assigned personnel is a direct relationship to
the size, complexity and timeframe of the project. Once the
project is awarded, APC will assign the following personnel:
Project Executive, Project Manager, Project Engineer (if required),
Field Superintendents (as required), Staff Accountant, and
Our Estimating Department is in charge of budgeting, bidding,
and cost control. All this work is done in conjunction with
the Project’s designated Project Manager and the Design
Team. Drawings and details are reviewed for cost and constructability
as they relate to the project’s budget and time schedule.
Establishing an accurate and timely budget is critical for
a successful project. 100% of the budgets are formulated through
a thorough quantity survey and a current understanding of market
unit costs. Our experienced Estimating Department has a strong
track record of creating competitive but realistic budgets.
Once the budget has been agreed upon, we monitor and update
the budgets as the project is being designed.
A.P. Construction Company believes in competitive and qualified
bidding of all subcontractors involved in any of our projects.
Our strategy is to select only qualified bidders for each trade
with direct input from the design team and Owner. Once this
list has been established, the low bidders are qualified with
the final subcontractor being selected on the basis of cost
in relationship to budget, quality and reputation, and the
ability to meet the desired project schedule. We have a strong
relationship with all of the area’s top subcontractors
and a reputation for being tough but fair. This translates into
time and cost savings for our clients.
The key to successful scheduling is to have the Owner, the
Design Consultants, and the Construction Manager (the Project
Team) establish an aggressive but achievable project timeframe,
inclusive of all project objectives, which all parties agree
to. Once established, we track the project and update the schedule
Project tracking is based on regular pre-construction meetings
and construction meetings during which we review meeting minutes,
all submittal logs, Request for Information (RFI) logs, and
Request for Proposal (RFP) logs, to ensure that all issues
raised are addressed and acted upon. Most importantly, we expedite
long lead items by following up via material tracking status
reports to ensure compliance with the agreed-upon material
delivery schedule and overall project schedule.
Construction is managed by the designated project team who
are responsible to maintain the established budget and schedule
while maintaining tight control on the quality of the work
and a safe work environment. We emphasize an open and direct
communication with our clients and the design team during the
construction period to be sure all parties are aware of any
impacts to the budget, schedule or quality of work. At the
end of construction, we will diligently pursue the completion
of the punch lists and the preparation of all final reports
and close out documentation.
