It is our approach to bring together the Owner, Architect, Contractor, and key specialty trades in on the project as early as possible - working together as a collaborative team. This gives the Owner the tools to make sound judgments that assist in transforming vision into reality, all within budget. Our process works to remove traditional trade boundaries and eliminate the layers of complexity that add time and cost.
An integral tool in our project delivery system is the utilization of a cloud-based software platform that drives collaboration among the entire project team – from Owner, Architect, Project Manager, and Superintendent to all key Subcontractors and Vendors. This industry-built software allows the project team to:
- View and update critical path schedules
- View and upload revised drawings
- Organize daily project logs
- Track ‘Requests for Information’ (RFI’s)
- Manage/approve change orders
- Store progress photos
- Share punch list items
- Build warranty and close-out packages
This key technological tool promotes transparency and streamlines the flow of documentation to ensure everyone has access to the same set of information. Working from a mobile or desktop platform, it allows users from any location to keep documents, drawings, and other critical project data in one place. Utilizing this secure, cloud-based technology not only enhances team communication, but since data is continually backed-up, it gives the project team the assurance that no data will be lost.
Ensuring the safety of the entire project team is an integral part of every project we undertake at Evans Construction. In fact, Evans Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of .90 exceeds average industry safety ratings. EMR, which is based on past safety claims, averages at 1.0 nation-wide. Making a continuous commitment to accident avoidance, Evans Construction enacts a comprehensive safety program for every project which includes training, tool-box meetings, and project-specific safety initiatives.
