• Pre-Construction Phase

    We believe that the beginning of every project is seeking to understand our client’s expectations, listening to even the smallest of details. From there, we bring our resources into alignment with these expectations to ensure that every single detail is executed successfully in the eyes of all project stakeholders. Our methods deliver projects that are at the level of expected quality, within budget, and on time, every time.

    Evaluate the Project – We review the initial budget against any preliminary design documents, make recommendations on material and equipment selections, perform constructability reviews, and suggest value analysis methodologies, all of which add value to our client’s project every step of the way.

    Schedule – We develop Critical Path Method (CPM) schedules with our clients that are both efficient and economic. Our CPM schedules incorporate lead times for selected materials and specified equipment as well as identify timeframes for all critical path activities for both construction and owner related scopes of work.

    Budget and Bid – We construct a budget for our clients by first asking the right questions. We make sure to differentiate between the items that are required for the project to be successful and those that would be considered “Wish List” items. Our vast network of craft partners both near and far help us to know who is capable, both physically and financially, to perform the specific scopes on any given project. We refine bid packages to minimize scope gaps and reduce double coverage between trades, reducing overall project costs.

    Throughout the entire pre-construction phase of a project, we strive to maintain a high level of communication with all stakeholders, ensuring that everyone is well-informed at all times. Our collaborative, team-based approach cultivates interaction between the owner, designer, and construction team that is unique to the industry. This approach has one goal in mind: to unify the design, budget, and schedule of a project so that the owner’s expectations will be realized during construction.

  • Construction Phase

    The construction phase is about proper management of safety, quality, schedule, and cost control. You cannot take your eyes off any of one of these and hope to have a successful project. ESI has proven processes and procedures that successfully manage each of these aspects on every job, every time.

    Safety – Everyone should go home exactly the same way they arrived at the job site each and every day. We believe the responsibility to achieve this goal is shared equally across all levels of our company: executive management, project staff, safety managers, workers, and craft partners. Our commitment to safety can be seen across every job site and is illustrated by our Stand Down for Safety. Hosted annually at one of our projects, this event engages our workers and educates them on the dangers inherent to our industry. Just as we protect our projects, we protect our people. ESI is a member of the OSHA Strategic Partnership Program (OSPP) in order to promote safe and productive work across all projects near and far.

    Quality – Our Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) team digs deep into the specifications and construction documents from the beginning to have a full understanding of the project. Quality managers come to the site knowledgeable on how to assess whether the building assemblies have been installed correctly and when to initiate corrective actions where necessary. Our QA/QC team will initiate and execute a three phase inspection process that we have developed using programs from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Our QA/QC team provides another value-added service to our clients to better protect their investments.

    Schedule – During the construction phase, we continually monitor the schedule against the baseline that was developed during the pre-construction phase. Short interval schedules will be presented and discussed in weekly craft partner meetings to ensure compliance with the overall CPM schedule for the duration of the project.

    Cost Control – Our cost-reporting processes are adjustable to fit each client’s needs. All project-related documentation is discussed, logged, and tracked until resolved in weekly meetings with the owner. We maintain an accurate accounting of project costs every step of the way in order to keep our clients financially informed.

  • Post-Construction Phase

    Through pre-planning the start-up, testing, and commissioning processes, coordinating the punch list, and delivering complete and accurate close-out documents, we remove the stress of transitioning into a new facility. Your staff will be trained on the building systems by our experts, supplying warranty guidance in an easy-to-use format to set them up for success.

    Commissioning and Start-up – Verifying that all systems function as intended by the design team is an essential component of any successful project delivery. Our team manages this process from design document review in pre-construction, through substantial completion, and on into owner occupancy. With ESI, you will know with confidence that your building operates correctly from day one.

    Owner Manuals and As-Built Construction Documentation – We compile and deliver accurate as-built drawings and instruction manuals for every piece of equipment provided on the project. Knowing all clients have unique needs, we customize the delivery of these documents in whatever format suits them best. But we don’t just stop there; if at any point down the road there is a question about the facility, we will always be here to answer it.

    Owner Trainings and Walkthroughs – From our hands to yours, the building will be running safe and sound. Through hands-on training, we ensure the building operator is fully versed in a facility’s equipment systems and cleaning procedures. For complex systems, we bring in certified experts for additional training. We also conduct walkthrough tours of the facility with project stakeholders, identifying the infrastructure of all utilities and their shut off points.

    Warranty – We consider any warranty issue or concern a top priority and will respond immediately after being notified of the issue. Our project team will always be available to assist with addressing any warranty issue in the fastest manner possible, minimizing the impact to the operational procedures of the facility.
