This is where the fun starts — and we’ll be with you every step of the way. During the construction phase, we’ll leverage the diverse backgrounds of our project managers and superintendents to ensure your project is done right.

A laser focus on efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

We’ll coordinate a team of reliable and trustworthy subcontractors to ensure timely and efficient construction. Furthermore, we require all subcontractors to submit a prequalification form in order to mitigate the risks associated with commercial construction.

The buyout process

We create bid packages and specific scopes of work tailored to each trade and unique to the project, resulting in more responsive subcontractors, higher-quality proposals, and the elimination of scope gap. We also analyze subcontractor proposals for completeness and interview major trades. In some cases, we may require that subcontractors provide a performance and payment bond to protect both ourselves and the owner.

Schedule updates

The project manager will provide continuous support to the superintendents, providing regular master schedule updates and transfering said information to the subcontractors.

Quality control

We work diligently to manage quality throughout construction by sourcing high-quality materials consistent with the design standards. Our integrated project management tool, Procore, enables organized punchlists that can be assigned to each trade.

Subcontractor compliance

We have strict policies and procedures to ensure that each subcontractor carries adequate insurance limits specific to each project and is prepared to shoulder the financial responsibility of any accidents or losses that occur as a result of their work.

Additionally, our payment procedure for subcontracts guarantees the maximum protection against mechanic’s liens and stop notices. We carefully monitor lien waivers to protect the project from encumbrances and the dangers of subcontractor insolvency.

An emphasis on safety

We implement a written safety program that’s administered by our general superintendent and our retained third-party safety consultant. The safety program is approved by our insurance carriers and complies with all applicable federal and state laws.

Our safety consultant will make regular job site visits and written reports, and certain subcontract trades will be required to have job walks by their in-house safety personnel. Additionally, our site superintendent will manage all site construction activities and the surrounding areas indirectly affected by the construction. 

We’ll implement the following measures to ensure subcontractor quality, performance, and safety:

  • Daily reporting from NGC and all subcontractors
  • Weekly subcontractor meetings covering topics such as safety, schedule, deliveries, RFIs, submissions, and new documents
  • Weekly Tool Box Talks by all trades as required by OSHA
  • Job hazard analysis for high-risk activities
  • Two-week look-ahead schedules updated weekly, identifying specific trade work to be performed
  • Delivery inspections by all subcontractors to ensure only approved products are being used for the project
  • Collaboration with the local inspectors, state fire marshal, state elevator inspector, and others regarding code requirements, planned inspections, and construction progress
  • Requirement for each subcontractor to have a competent person on-site at all times for safety
