The Estimating process is fully computerized, beginning with the drawing
take-offs through the project total. This approach has several advantages
for General Contractors and Project Managers.
|Automatic error-free dimension and component calculation.|
|Produces firm, to the penny, bid prices and detailed budget numbers.|
|Quality control check points to avoid over/under estimates to control
|Electronic recordkeeping to improve customer service and response related to
Because the T & M Estimating Department follows a standardized estimating
process, bid and pricing response receive fast turn-a-round. All final
bids are subjected to a stringent Quality Control process which includes a
Accuracy Review prior to prices and budgets being released. And that is
how Pros do it!
"Panelizing" a project is part
science and part art. The science of size and weight is something that is
expected of tilt-up designers, T & M
delivers on the "science". The "art" of panel design rests in partnership
and experience. Partnership is the
ability to work in collaboration with architect and owners to
ensure the look and feel of the project is maintained, while controlling costs
as panels are created and joined. Experience is understanding what it
means to take what looks good on paper and what it takes on-site to construct
and erect buildings. Understanding these aspects of panel design allows T
& M to "avoid trouble before it reaches the field." Designing projects
from 10,000 square feet to over 1,000,000 square feet has provided a broad
experience base which spans from smaller to the largest projects. This is
one of the features General Contractors enjoy about how T & M does business.
We are able to take virtually any project from it's initial "concept to
Once T & M wins a bid, then it is time to earn the business. Step one is
assigning a Project Manager which will be oversee many aspects of the project,
but chiefly to fill two roles:
|Ensure overall customer satisfaction and |
|Be the primary point of contact with T & M Operations. |
As the primary point of contact, the Project Manger will also handle internal
coordination of drawings, T & M crews, project tracking, materials and closing out
the project at completion. In many cases the Project Manager will have had
involvement in the estimating process, which decreases their initial project
up-to-speed time. T & M's approach to Project Manager staffing centers
around developing project management skills in those who know construction
rather than trying to train a project manager how construction works.
Experience has shown that this approach provides the best service and value add
Structural Engineering of
Walls or the Entire Facility
For panel and structural
requirements, T & M works with several licensed structural engineers who are
considered leaders in their engineering disciplines. T & M can oversee the
structural design and engineering for panels, walls or an entire facility
through it's relationship with these key engineering firms.
& Construction Crews
Jobs to layout, panels to form, concrete to place! Once
drawings hit the job site, the key to an on-time/on-budget project is leaving
nothing to chance along the way. T & M Superintendents have the experience
to hands-on manage the day-to-day job site operation and keep workmanship high
and schedules moving on track. Another value added advantage of
experienced superintendents is their additional awareness of project activities
surrounding the tilt-up installation. On many occasions the awareness and
knowledge of T & M's superintendent has saved the General Contractor money, time
and frustration by helping the project avoid trouble.
Top Rate Erection Crews
Tilting up multi-ton reinforced concrete panels is a feat to
T & M crews make it look easy. That's what happens when you
see professionals at work. Our crews have set panels as heavy as 192,000
pounds and as large as 72 feet 6 inches tall and 50 feet wide. In fact,
they set more than 20 panels a day with a crew personal best of 56 panels in a
"It's not bragging if it's fact", or so said John Wayne. T & M Tilt-Up can
field top rate erection crews for all their rigs. While quality equipment
and well trained, experienced crews takes an investment, the payoff comes in
fast, quality work that is performed safely. It is no time to skimp with a
100,000 ton panel overhead and deadline commitments you intend to keep.
There is, however, a substitute for a top rate erection crew: budget
overruns and missed schedule dates. Accept NO SUBSTITUTES - insist on T &
