Our Specific Project Based Services
New Line Structures provides pre-construction services, implemented before actual construction begins. These services are the foundation of the pre-construction planning stages of a construction project, crucial to ensuring the smooth and successful execution of any job. Pre-construction is the first phase of the overall planning, coordination, and control of construction. New Line Structures’ pre-construction services outline the planning of the project, offering our clients a precise overview of what their job is going to look like, how it is going to be achieved, and when every aspect of the job will be completed. And, in keeping with the New Line Structures M.O. – guaranteeing a happy client – honoring and respecting their vision.
A breakdown of New Line Structures’ overall project evaluation and pre-construction services include:
Project Site Review New Line Structures meets with the Design Team and Ownership and provides constructability and budget input and insight in order to complete the design development and construction documents.
Conceptual Budgets and Cost Estimating At different phases of the pre-construction process New Line Structures will provide preliminary cost estimates. As the project continues to develop, the preliminary estimates are updated as information becomes more accurate.
Critical Path Method (CPM) Schedules New Line Structures delivers the preparation of CPM Schedules. CPM Scheduling is one of the most important pre-construction tools used when constructing a building, vital for well-managed, timely, and cost-effective construction. On a New Line Structures-managed project, the CPM schedule grows from its initial layout during the pre-construction phase to a multi-faceted schedule. At New Line Structures, losing time on a critical path activity is not acceptable.
Materials and Labor Analysis As a project design changes and evolves, New Line Structures will review the construction drawings and documents to make suggestions on materials, construction related concerns, and building systems.
Plan Review / Value Engineering Should any discrepancy arise between the current designs and client budgets, New Line Structures will review and recommend alternate materials and construction methods in order to meet the budget. Constructability is also a major concern, and where pre-construction is most valuable. Verifying constructability of projects in the design stage reduces changes and keeps the costs low.
New Line Structures directs and oversees all aspects of the building process as Construction Manager. New Line Structures’ construction management services provide efficient, cost-effective construction by applying a critical path method (CPM) including comprehensive project schedules. Our schedules are updated live with current and pertinent information, building, and becoming multi-faceted along with the architecture. The result is a project team on top of the schedule and all sequences of new activities. Look-ahead schedule printouts inform weekly team meetings and enable tracking for ongoing and upcoming activities. Project slippage is identified ahead of time, and any necessary corrective measures tackled early in collaboration.
The latest software is used not only internally, but also to provide close and effective communication with all trades. New Line Structures utilizes a cloud-based project management information system (the industry-leading Procore Technologies award-winning project management tool) for an integrated approach to project management, document control, bidding, quality, safety, and construction financials. Employed to streamline and dramatically increase project efficiency and accountability, the single, collaborative database system allows up-to-date reporting of full project anticipated hard costs, soft costs, and specialty costs. Project teams manage the project costs daily, providing consistent and accurate reporting.
At New Line Structures, job site safety has top priority. With our team of Directors of Health and Safety, New Line Structures is committed to promoting and protecting the safety and well-being of all by cultivating and maintaining the safest of workplace environments. Ongoing safety training and education is a constant in the routine of all employees via personalized coaching, academy training, virtual seminars, and access to wellness tools.
New Line Structures as Construction Manager best represents the owner’s interest, overseeing the entire project directly and expressly for the client. Our role as Owner’s Representative is to determine the most effective sequence of construction operations and counteract and remedy potential construction issues before they materialize. As Owner’s Representative we collaborate with all stakeholders to realize the owner’s ultimate vision and deliver the project on time, on budget, and with the highest standards of quality, scope, safety, and function. New Line Structures is uniquely qualified to act as Owner Representative through the combined education and experience of our teams of Project Executives and Managers, Architects, Engineers, Design Experts, and VDC Coordinators.
At New Line Structures, the Construction Manager, Owner, and Builder work in collaboration as a team committed to the project. New Line Structures, overseeing as General Contractor, coordinates with our trusted, hand-selected subcontractors, delegating work and delivering a strong construction workforce after thoughtful attention and planning. All New Line Structures contractors and vendors are vetted and approved by the largest SDI carriers in the industry. The intense contractor prequalification evaluation process includes business, legal, and safety information; contractor client reference questionnaires; and financial evaluation. Only the most qualified subcontractors are approved and used for each New Line Structures project. Efficient, proactive construction teams comprised of focused contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers are created to fulfill the project vision.
New Line Structures provides in-house 3D Coordination and clash detection – Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) – at early stages to avoid major issues. With interactive SMART Boards in all of our state of the art conference rooms, we work faster and to a level of detail otherwise unattainable. Beyond basic MEP/FP Coordination, we resolve design, code, UL and constructability issues with an attentive eye on cost savings, increased system efficiency, and improved architecture.
