Once we establish an understanding as to the location and scope of the property’s use, BSI is able to use its resources in identifying perspective locations. In doing so, BSI takes under consideration the proposed site’s features such as appropriate zoning, adjacent properties, accessibility, environmental concerns, and availability of utilities.
With a history of successful development projects, BSI is able to network our clients with professionals that provide various types of real estate and project financing.
With the procurement of a property, there is a list of tasks that must be performed in order for a successful closing. BSI has successfully worked alongside our clients’ real estate and legal professionals to ensure that these tasks are performed during the period of due diligence. BSI has engaged with environmental consultants, geotechnical consultants, structural consultants, and appraisers to generate the documents necessary in this process.
One of the first tasks in the critical path of project development is design and site improvements. Our clients have relied on our experience with assisting the project team in facility design and feasibility. This includes environmental remediation, storm water management, zoning, permitting, community support, and preliminary budgeting. The coordination of all these tasks is essential to move a project from concept to construction.
Pre-Construction Services include providing preliminary estimates throughout the design phase, preparation of bid documents, procurement of contractors, creating a critical path project schedule, bid analysis, bid award, creating and distributing contract documents, and contract management.
Construction Phase Services
Construction Phase Services consist of on-site supervision, cost tracking, submittal document management, invoice processing, administrative services, project management services, conducting of progress meetings with the client and design team, submission of project progress reporting, and temporary site facilities needed to support contractors.
Project Close-Out and Warranties Management Services
Project Close-Out and Warranties Management Services involve BSI remaining an active partner of the client for a period of time after a project is substantially completed and an owner has taken control of a facility. BSI provides its clients with the peace of mind that all components of their facilities are in proper working order to the performance that was designed and specified for the project. It is BSI’s company policy to make all contractors that perform work on our projects be obligated to respond to any deficiencies of any products or equipment installed for a period of time no less than one year from project turnover. BSI Construction also ensures that the project’s facility manager has all the proper training and resources to efficiently manage the building once the warranty period has concluded. BSI maintains a close working relationship with all of our past clients and their facilities managers for assistance when necessary
BSI Construction maintains LEED Accredited Professionals on staff to assist the project team in developing a sustainable building approach that meets the client’s economic and financial constraints, as well as the building’s functional purpose. Green building solutions are a proven method of long-term economic savings through energy efficiency which is a direct benefit to our clients.
With the rapid growth of sustainable philosophies within the construction industry, BSI has been able to successfully integrate these practices into several recent projects which have achieved both LEED Platinum and Gold certifications.
BSI Construction has built decades-long relationships with the area’s most established and respected contractors throughout the building trades. These strong associations allow for BSI to assure its clients that they are receiving the best quality workmanship, while meeting all schedule and budget constraints.
Additionally, BSI strives to establish a strong working relationship among the entire project team – from the Design Team to the Owner to the Subcontractors that are on site – for each client. This comprehensive group approach streamlines project progress, ensuring that all work is completed successfully and on time.
