Widewaters has a long history and proven reputation for excellence as an owner’s agent that delivers results on time and on budget. However, anyone who has any familiarity with this industry understands that construction is a complex process, and it is foolish to think that nothing ever goes off-plan. In those very rare instances where something unplanned occurs that delays a project, Widewaters’ leadership and its team of experts respond with contingency plans and courses of action, vigorously executed, to get things back on track. For this very fact, project success or failure can almost always be traced back to the pre-construction phase. The diligence, foresight and effort put forth in this phase by the Widewaters professional services team is without peer in the industry.
The process starts with pre-construction consulting. A team of Widewaters professionals is comprised of:
- Financial Analysts
- Regulatory Analysts
- Legal Counsel
Our team comes together under a single program manager to work with the client’s team. Deliverables during pre-construction consulting include:
- Site and Building Feasibility Analysis
- Preliminary Costing
- Return on Investment (ROI) Analysis
- Layout and Functionality
After pre-construction consulting and program “go-ahead,” the Widewaters team continues the design-build process with the client or can hand off the program for construction management and general contracting.
The Widewaters design-build process combines the results of pre-construction consulting and integrates its construction management. At this point, our engineers and architects work with their in-house construction counterparts to begin detailed planning for specific construction milestones and point projects to support the client’s total construction program.
Widewaters makes extensive use of building information modeling (BIM) during the design build process. Widewaters’ leading-edge use of technology supports the building process with 3-D object-oriented modeling to facilitate design, construction and facilities management, including a detailed rendering of how the building will perform in real time.
The pre-construction planning process is absolutely vital to ensure a successful build, but actual construction is where plans and dreams turn into completed buildings and the opportunity to earn streams of revenue.
Widewaters Construction, used stand-alone or as part of a complete design-build engagement, has built over 2 million square feet of real estate and 3,410 hotel rooms. Our no-nonsense, results-oriented approach to construction ensures a streamlined process in:
- Construction Management
- Project Cost Reporting
- Safety Compliance
- Monitoring Schedule and Quality of Construction
- Onsite Daily Coordination
Widewaters Construction Management practice professionals look far beyond the basic but vital general contracting assignment and drill down into the client’s program with a passionate emphasis on:
- Risk Mitigation
- Client Satisfaction
We work with our clients during all phases of construction, treating each project as part of the whole program. Project and program status are managed and updated through the use of modern software technology to ensure the client has an up-to-the-minute status on all aspects of the construction engagement. This use of technology also ensures our client is working off the same set and revision of information – reducing confusion, mistakes and possible lost time or unneeded cost.
We know that pre-construction planning helps ensure a better physical construction but recognize that it’s construction that turns dreams into assets. Widewaters is an expert on both sides of the equation and can help you at any point of the process, whether you need a full-service partner or simply need help in pre-construction. Regardless of where you are in the process, the experts at Widewaters can use their expertise in construction to add value to your project.
