Verdi Energy Group's project and construction management services provide you with the right tools to keep your projects on track. From initial planning and design, through construction and closeout, Verdi Energy Group provides services to public agencies, the federal government and the private sector. In addition, Verdi Energy Group develops project management systems and strategies for companies to manage their own projects and workload. Verdi Energy Group works as an integral part of your management team either as a supplement to your staff or as an outside advisor. Our team of management experts is knowledgeable in the full range of design and construction processes and can provide valuable and unique insight into the management of your projects. Whether you need to manage an individual project or an entire program, Verdi Energy Group's trained experts can provide you with all the support needed to ensure success. Our proactive approach allows project issues and milestones to be identified early on and establishes a basis for making timely decisions with confidence.
Early formulation of proper contracting strategies is key to a project's success. The ultimate cost of a project is determined as much by the initial purchase price as by the volume of labor, equipment, and materials it contains. The project's schedule is equally dependent on the contracting approach. Sometimes it is more economical to buy construction contracts trade by trade; other times, retaining one or more general contractors for construction and occasionally purchasing certain items of equipment directly will better benefit the owner. We analyze multiple strategies when tailoring a project's contracting approach.
Too many times, quality control programs for construction are put off until a convenient window of time occurs or an emergency arises. At Verdi Energy Group, that window of opportunity is now! Our quality control programs start at the beginning of a project and continue through occupancy. We match facility programs with budgets and perform regular technical reviews of design documents. Where possible, we qualify contractors and develop detailed scopes of work for each. During construction, our management teams conduct field observations to ensure the construction conforms to the design documents.
Before the start of construction, we analyze specific site conditions to determine their impact on construction logistics. These analyses include the location of staging areas for labor and materials, crane locations, site security, gate locations, existing traffic patterns and interconnections with existing roadways and utility systems. Through the use of CAD systems, we plot these strategies graphically for use by the entire team.
Verdi Energy Group's construction managers work closely with public agencies, the federal government and private companies as the owner's representative to ensure project success and protect the owner's interests. Just before the start of construction, our field management teams take up residence on the job site. Each team is lead by a project manager who directs the activities of the team members and is the principal interface with the client. Our staff works independently as an unbiased party coordinating information and facilitating issues throughout the entire construction process. We work with the owner to maintain close communications regarding all aspects of the project to completely understand the ramifications of construction and decisions. This includes: managing on-site field offices, daily construction observations and inspections, providing a project coordinator/liaison, issuing progress reports, facilitating construction meetings, cost estimating, scheduling, maintaining a document database, managing correspondence and activity logs, project administration, change order programs, analyzing claims, analyzing pay requests, commissioning and close-out.
Verdi Energy Group's effective construction management services demonstrate a commitment to the total project. We provide full project controls and construction management services or supplemental and select support services to coordinate and assist existing construction management teams.
Verdi Energy Group's involvement continues through post-construction with support in dispute resolution, claims and legal assistance. Our staff is comprised of professional licensed engineers, nationally certified cost engineers, trained value specialists, schedulers, construction managers and certified public accountants with the professional background and expertise to successfully analyze issues and facilitate resolution. – less–ZoomInfo
