Construction
Your thoughts and dreams, time and effort, and financial planning are about to become a reality. The project is ready to start, what do you do now? Our project management team will guide you through the construction process, its ups and downs through use of our innovative project management systems by planning, scheduling, implementing subcontract purchasing, material ordering, selections, and inspections.

Planning

We embrace the revised 6-P’s adage principal of Proper Planning Promotes Peak Performance. By planning the project prior to starting construction, many costly mistakes can be avoided. In many instances delaying a projects start will allow it to finish early and with decreased costs. How is this possible? If the project planning is not completed and methods agreed, or selection of primary building parts or systems are not determined starting a project and the construction process could pass the proper installation sequencing resulting in removing or modifying what was just built. Time is money, but in construction once a project starts the clock starts ticking. Our planning system involves asking pointed questions and the resulting answers are utilized during construction.

Scheduling

Utilizing scheduling programs we keep the project on time by proactively planning and implementing subcontract purchasing, material ordering, selections, inspections.

Material Ordering
When purchased properly is seamless but when materials are ordered late can significantly delay a project. At Cianci Construction, we create a material list at the start of the project and adjust it as construction progresses

Subcontract Purchasing

Our goal is to purchase all work prior to starting, where possible, to avoid unexpected costs and to avoid unexpected conditions.

Selections

Typically the touchable, visual pieces and parts of the project sometimes know as the “fuzzy”parts. Selections in many estimates and contracts are left as allowances as they typically are not clearly defined until the project begins, the project is well underway, or in many instances, not selected until the space is actually built as this provides the ability to see the “actual” space before deciding. The later is problematic as many selections such as flooring, casework, and millwork can have long lead times, sometimes more time than is left on the project to complete it. This is a very important step in the process and can be avoided utilizing our selection schedule. A selection schedule is created prior or at the start of the project and will list the time frames opposite of the construction schedule. By looking at the schedule backwards will determine when the item will need to be installed and based upon lead times when it will need to be selected and purchased.

Inspections
A necessary and important part of the construction process and we embrace the permit process for many reasons:

a. Licensed General Contractor - as a licensed General Contracting Company we are required to permit all jobs that the city or municipalities require us to permit. This distinguishes us from an unlicensed person or company.

b. Permits are required – in most municipalities in South Florida any project over $2,500.00 dollar value, or service provided by company or someone other than owner, and/or any work on the exterior of a building requires a permit.

c. Another set of eyes – The inspection process provides another qualified person to review and check the construction project and provides the owner a reassurance that it was completed correctly to today’s standards.

d. Inspections trigger payments – Inspection in many larger projects the triggers for contractor payments and are therefore critical for cash flow and management.

e. Value added to property - the building, work, renovation once completed will provide added value to the owner

f. Occupancy at completion – Inspections are required throughout the construction process to ultimately receive a Certificate of Occupancy. This is the final step in the construction process allows the owner to occupy the newly completed project.

Note

1. Some small projects or certain types of work are not required. As a policy, we will always inquire first and get approval to proceed if a permit is not require.

2. Permit requirements vary in terms of dollar threshold, type of work, and who performs the work. Always check with local governing jurisdiction before proceeding with any work as it might cost you twice.
