Design - Build:

 

Ahrens Companies understands the dependent relationship between the designer and the contractor. We bring professional representation to the constructed product and a single point of contact for the entire building process from planning to design and ending with construction. Our goal is to provide every Owner with the product they envisioned on time, under budget, at the highest level of quality available.

General Contracting:

 

We take technical proficiency, budget adherence and scheduling as benchmarks for each project. Scheduling the right equipment and the right team for each job, coupled with technical and disciplined managers is a cornerstone of our vast and successful construction portfolio.

Rarely are scope and budget in balance at the beginning of the design. Once we thoroughly understand the goals of the project, we will detail the workable options so as to maximize the program. This "value engineering" is often described as dollars saved, but it in fact serves a larger purpose: cost-effective evaluation of long and short-term options ensuring the comfort and efficiency of the user.

Quality Control Management:

 

Preparatory meetings are held prior to performing work to establish responsibilities, contract requirements, scheduling, hazards involved and proper safety required in completing each definable feature of work. Initial and follow-up inspections are conducted during each activity to assure all quality standards are maintained. Final inspections are conducted upon completion of each work phase to assure compliance. Risks must be continually reviewed and processes developed. Policies and procedures that reinforce these values must be communicated.

 

Our Post-Construction services include:

 

   Building / Facility Manuals

   Warranty Service

 

Sustainable Design:

 

The LEED certified professionals on our team will know what eco-friendly green principles may be applicable to your site, thus selecting the improvements which fit your Return on Investment requirement.
