3 Things To Consider When Choosing an Industrial Contractor
Choosing an industrial contractor is a critical component in any new construction project. Consider these three factors as you compare contractors and prepare to launch a major infrastructure expansion. A specialty contractor, like our team at Commercial Construction Incorporated, streamlines the construction process to minimize downtime and unnecessary spending.
Self-perform capabilities of the industrial contractor
Ask your industrial contractor about self-perform experience and capabilities. Many contractors outsource significant areas of the construction process, which could compromise the timeline or safety of your facility. Self-perform contracting contractors perform critical construction activities with in-house expertise.
Here are some examples of self-perform capabilities of our team at CCI:
- Steel erection
- Heavy rigging
- Millwright services
- Machinery installation
Our skilled labor force, equipment and management team performs these services from start to finish, ensuring quality at every level. We control the process to improve the accuracy of initial estimates and timelines. Owned equipment ensures fully maintained resources are always available for our skilled contractors.
Self-performing at CCI offers you the following benefits:
- Accelerated timeline: We don’t wait for subcontractors to handle essential services, so you don’t have to wait either.
- Reduced costs: Streamlined staffing promotes a cost-efficient process.
- Improved safety: Workplace safety is a key part of our mission at CCI. Working with our contractors means working with a team committed to zero injuries, accidents or citations.
- Increased communication: Stay informed with a single point of contact in our company. Communicate any questions or concerns with a manager to avoid miscommunication or missed instructions.
Relevant industry experience
Consider an industrial contractor with the experience necessary to accomplish your project. Ask your project manager about relevant experience, not only in your industry but in this particular application.
We serve a broad spectrum of industries to achieve results in industrial contracting:
- Power generation
- Heavy industrial
- Industrial process
Quality management in these various industries takes on many forms, so ask about the project-specific experience of your industrial contractor.
Consider our recent projects and how they relate to your project requirements:
- Gas compressor engine overhaul
- Dust collection upgrades
- Transformer overhaul
- CNC installation
- Cogeneration power plant
- REF equipment relocation and installation
A contractor with experience in your industry may not have the equipment and project management experience necessary to handle these dynamic projects. Contractors must be able to handle your specific project with minimal downtime and industry-specific safety solutions.
Range of delivery methods
Before accepting a bid from a construction company, ask about preferred delivery methods or range of methods available. Not all industrial construction companies can facilitate a self-perform project or handle general contracting as part of the process.
Here are some common delivery methods that leading industrial contractors offer:
- General contracting
- Engineering, procurement and construction
- Self-perform trades
Choose a full-service contracting company for all of these services. Even if your particular project doesn’t require engineering or procurement services, you can benefit from establishing a relationship with a versatile construction service provider.
Focus your resources on your company expansion or renovation project. A team that offers all of these delivery methods organizes the resources, experience, safety procedures and other features necessary for an efficient project. Your time is a valuable resource, and a contracting company that handles everything from design and engineering services to procurement and installation frees up a significant amount of your time during the construction process.
