SERVICES

How a project will be designed and constructed, or choosing the right delivery method, is one of the most important decisions every owner must make before embarking on a construction project. We help coach you through the entire process, from start to finish, guiding you and your project in a successful direction.

Construction Management

Construction Management is a collaborative project delivery method in which a construction firm is typically hired by the client during the design process on the basis of qualifications and past relevant experience. There are several types of Construction Management agreements including:

  • Construction Manager (CM) as Advisor
  • Construction Manager (CM) at Risk
  • Construction Manager (CM) as Agent
Design/Build

Design/Build is a project delivery method in which both the design and construction services are under a single contract with the Owner.

  • Turn Key
  • Build to Suit
  • Design – Assist
General Contracting

General Contracting is a project delivery  method in which an Owner issues a complete set of construction drawings developed by an architect to interested construction firms who then develop pricing for the cost of materials, labor, equipment, insurance and other factors associated with that specific project.

  • Lump Sum
  • Cost Plus

PRE-CONSTRUCTION

WE BEGIN CRAFTING YOUR BUILDING WELL BEFORE CONSTRUCTION BEGINS.

During the pre-construction phase, we work with you to finalize budgets, designs, construction drawings, permitting, schedules and logistics. We take care to include every single line item so your project runs as smoothly as possible, without any surprises down the road. Every detail is important to your budget and your peace of mind. Throughout the project, we present all viable options, make a recommendation, and give you enough time to make decisions carefully and thoughtfully.

With a focus on achieving your goals, Meyer Najem works in tandem with the design team to select systems and materials, as well as adjust designs for constructability. This proven methodology guides the design process, establishes milestone dates and develops accurate budget estimates.

CONSTRUCTION

ONCE PLANNING IS COMPLETE AND CONTRACTS ARE SIGNED, WE BRING YOUR VISION TO LIFE.

As the building owner, you are at the heart of our construction process and have continuous visibility into our progress through check-in meetings and updates. We use technology such as drones to capture aerial views, iPads onsite to view the same planning documents at all times, and an online project management tool so our communication is as efficient, productive and transparent as possible. We honor our deadlines and ensure quality and safety, always staying respectful of your time and resources. Through the LEAN process, we reduce redundancies, streamline communication, and ensure alignment across all project teams: from owner to architect, engineer to subcontractor.

POST-CONSTRUCTION

WHEN CONSTRUCTION IS COMPLETE, WE DON’T JUST HAND YOU THE KEYS AND DISAPPEAR.

We guide you through a smooth handoff process including walk-throughs, video reference manuals from our construction team, and digital records of blueprints, manuals, warranties and materials information so you understand how every piece of equipment works together to keep your building running. As we wrap-up the construction process, we complete the finishing touches in a 30- or 60-day punchlist, ensuring that your building is just as you imagined. And after you’ve been in your building for a year, we’ll stop by for a walk-through and address anything that’s causing you trouble or needs fixing.

SUSTAINABILITY

Meyer Najem is committed to constructing environmentally conscious buildings and improving quality of life for the end user. This commitment to sustainability is evident in our portfolio and in the quality and training of our staff.

SUSTAINABILITY

Meyer Najem is committed to sustainable construction practices. We have many accredited professionals and have built several LEED Certified projects. So, why is this so important?

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a third-party verification system for green buildings developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED certification helps to identify how environmentally friendly and sustainable a building really is, taking into account metrics such as:

  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy Efficiency
  • CO2 Emissions Reductions
  • Indoor Environmental Quality

These areas and more address sustainability issues that LEED scores. The total number of points that a project receives translates to one of four LEED certification rating levels. These levels are Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

The following are just a few of the reasons why obtaining LEED certification is important:

Cost Savings

Improving things such as energy efficiency and water efficiency greatly reduce the monthly utility bills, as LEED- certified buildings cost less to operate. Energy and water bills can be reduced by as much as 40%

Advantages for Building Owners

Studies show that buildings that employ LEED have higher occupancy rates, lower tenant turn-over, and lease more quickly and for more dollars per square foot than non LEED-certified buildings. There are also incentives like tax rebates and utility programs available to many LEED-certified buildings.

Creating a Healthier Environment

LEED saves energy, water and other resources, reducing the overall environmental impact. Additionally, buildings that are built and operated in environmentally-friendly ways often contain less unhealthy indoor environments that can cause absenteeism and decreased productivity for employees. The bottom line is, the healthier your indoor environment is, the more comfortable it will be.
