Real World Experience
Allana Buick & Bers (ABBAE) custom tailors its teams to meet the specific needs of every client, ensuring the client’s best interests are kept at the forefront.
The assigned ABBAE construction team establishes, prioritizes, coordinates and manages strict guidelines for the entire project team (Owner, Designer & Builder) to follow to meet the client’s goals and objectives in all areas of concern: quality, cost, and time.
ABBAE is customer-focused. We are determined to provide the most innovative construction management available in the industry and rigorously educate and train our staff to meet that high standard.
ABBAE has extensive expertise providing CM services for post-litigation reconstruction of occupied units. We have managed and coordinated numerous projects that involve condominium units remaining occupied during construction. We coordinate with management and owners affected by the project to ensure efficient execution of the reconstruction work with minimal disruptions. We provide detailed reporting and continuous supervision throughout the project to keep the Board of Directors and management abreast of all challenges and progress.
ABBAE assists contractors, architects, and owners to accurately procure and competitively bid sub-contractor scope of work. Often, sub-contractors propose alternate materials and provide clarification and exclusions during the bid. This is a critical phase of the project, which requires careful consideration to understand design impacts for costs and risks.
We provide complete on-site construction administration services during construction. ABBAE’s construction administrators are highly trained professionals who understand design intent. Construction administrators assist the team with meetings, help answer RFI questions, and provide design clarifications. They work closely with the designer of record to review drawings and submittals, and periodically conduct site visits to verify design intent.
ABBAE provides full-time and part-time construction monitoring and quality assurance observation services. Our experience has shown that effective construction monitoring has the potential to make the most significant difference in reducing risk, reducing construction defects, achieving a more leak free building, and increasing the life expectancy of building envelope systems. Our team of experienced construction monitors is recognized by industry organizations as experts, and our team consists of specialists in façade, roofing, mechanical, structural, and waterproofing.
Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABBAE) has a subsidiary Allana Buick & Bers Construction Management, LLC (ABBCM) that provides construction management. Our professional in-house architectural engineering and construction management staff has the expertise to provide solutions for economic analysis, planning, design, construction management, and performance testing of complex projects for public and private sector clients.
In addition to construction management, we also specialize in quality assurance services, such as construction monitoring and performance testing for building owners, assuring that each construction project meets clients’ expectations. We also provide pre-construction services, competitive bidding, pre-construction meetings and construction administration services.
