Power Centres

 

 Understanding your site and building's purpose and usability

 
  • We get involved with the intersection design between city planning municipality traffic signals. We take into account traffic and pedestrian flow, recent traffic impact studies and make sure the municipalities are current with traffic lighting or control studies or requirements.
  • Co-ordination with utilities, power, gas, bring them to the table to make sure our power and gas are delivered to the building, when it is needed. 
  • To manage expectations for quality, cost and design, we review prototype or tenant provided drawings, landlords architect drawings, to ensure continuity with the actual build drawings. 
  • During the build process we have on going meetings to look after managing customers expectations for their new space, and any changes they request. For tenants to whom this is all new we will clarify any points they do not know or understand.
  • Co-ordination of the multiple occupancies and properties both onsite and offsite, to reduce tenant risk, ownership, and mange tenant expectations for their new space.
  • During the leasing stage, review landlord work agreements with tenants, for any impact on the budgets prior to client signing their lease agreement.
  • As revisions or changes are made we combine the drawings from all the people and consultants involved to create a master build set of drawings.
  • Identify and stay focused on the critical QA and QC requirements of the building.
  • We do detailed conceptual budgets and provide cost consulting through the design process.
  • We coordinate with the end user, work with the client, consultants and the architect to ensure the building needs and costs are kept balanced.
  • Reverse engineer budgeting/value engineering when it fits.
  • As we are involved in the initial design of the building, we pay close attention to decision on building material specifications for maintenance and sustainability costs, relevant to weather and operating conditions. For example we may save cost on the back of the building to upgrade to the heating system.
  • Tenant co-ordination for materials, constructions elements with the end user,  and making sure it all shows up on time, a 400 amp panel goes where it should and not a 200 amp panel in its place. We have seen it happen.
  • We provide comprehensive maintenance and warranty manuals that exceed industry standards for the maintenance of the building. That covers everything from the best way to clean floor tile, to the correct way to change the light blubs.
 
 

Clarifying expectations

 
  • To continually improve quality we developed our own turn over document,  at point of move in what has been check offed reflects the actual agreement between the tenant and landlord, included is inspection and utility information.
  • For timing of the building, site development and smooth tenant move in. 
  • Liaising with municipalities, tenants, utilities, for utilities co-ordination
  • For the people who will be providing service or maintenance for the building so the building is as safe and simple as possible to maintain or perform maintenance on. 
  • Project control and full time on site supervision.
  • Management of change orders as they occur and analysis to minimize cost when ever possible.
