Building is always about increasing potential.
Building is always about increasing potential. It’s planning, constructing, managing and partnering in ways that are truly most valuable to you. For us, whether we’re handling a design/build project or working as part of a joint effort, we see success as your complete satisfaction. From our own geographic growth to expanding the list of construction methods we offer, every measure we’ve taken has been to better serve our clients.
Pre-construction and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC)
Construction begins at conception. So it stands to reason that this is the most critical time for true partnership to pay off. The earlier we can work together with our clients to plan, model, source materials and subcontractors, influence cost and increase efficiency, the more opportunity there can be for real consistency and value.
Construction is all about building lasting value for our clients. Whether we are managing subcontractors on an office build-out, or self-performing a variety of civil, mechanical and heavy rigging work on a new combined-cycle power plant, building the highest quality product while maintaining a safe work site and carefully managed schedule is always at the forefront of what we do.
Virtual Design & Construction/BIM (VDC/BIM)
Graycor continues to invest in its Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities as an instrumental component in visualizing projects and detecting clashes with building systems. Through creating fully-integrated models from construction documents to eliminate problems typically discovered in the field, both time and costs savings are realized on projects.
We see the traditional Conceptual Design > Schematic Design > Design Development > Construction Document model yielding to an approach that promotes more decision-making earlier in the document development process, in the very early stages, or perhaps even before the development of the 3D model. Due to the effort involved in developing and significantly revising the model once it is created, preliminary project schedules reflect the BIM process for document development. Since an emphasis is placed on up-front decision-making, Graycor teams perform significant budget exercises to provide feedback on various building design options during the initial Schematic Design process. This familiarity with BIM in design development and budgeting has enabled Graycor to assemble preconstruction services proposals reflective of the BIM process.
Graycor is the leading self-performing contractor serving the steel industry. We provide our clients maximum efficiency, dedicated cost control and the ability to meet aggressive timelines without sacrificing safety. We are proud to have two fully operational fabrication shops located in Portage, Indiana and Kennesaw, Georgia.
Our fabrication shop management teams provide full-service capabilities along with exceptionally skilled craftspeople to perform your most challenging and critical assignments.
Construction Management at Risk
Management requires understanding both the risks and the rewards of every aspect of a project. At Graycor, we have the financial stability and field experience to tackle complex construction management projects, at risk.
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
Collaboration is essential to successful projects, especially those that are the most complex. Graycor has the integrated project delivery experience needed to harness the talents of all project participants and integrate the people, systems and practices needed to reduce waste and maximize efficiency.
Coast to coast, our unique focus on combining our financial stability with the ability to manage even the most complex type of project has made us a premier general contractor.
When clients want a reliable single source of responsibility that can maximize cost-effectiveness, quality craftsmanship and on-site safety – while also managing scheduling, efficiency and project scope at every stage – Graycor is a perfect partner.
Engineering, Procurement + Construction (EPC)
We understand that there are times when owners cannot take time away from their business to manage a multitude of project participants. Engineering, procurement and construction allows the owner to leverage Graycor’s ability to manage the design, sourcing and installation for the entire project.
