Solidus performs many types of retail and commercial construction across New England. Our collaborative approach provides consultancy, architectural services and interior design, but most importantly our seasoned construction team can execute on those plans. In addition, our DesignBuildFurnish process guarantees that we will complete your project on time and within budget.
Integrated Projects = smarter space for better business
Our planning and execution ensure we stay inside your budget, and we finish on time. But there's much more:
Lean: efficient environments
We believe in a LEAN approach. We continuously refine all our processes in ways that enhance our clients' value proposition. As a result, you can set new standards across your branch networks and save your employees time in their daily routines. We monitor industry changes relentlessly, to guarantee the best possible materials and methods. We bring deeper functions but everything we build is beautiful in its own unique way.
IPD: Design/build/furnish & COLLABORATIve Construction
We practice Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) as a transparent process that empowers our clients. We share all markups from the project's inception, enabling you to make better-informed decisions throughout the timeline. You won't be vulnerable to the risks in planning and controlling all the moving parts (trades and disciplines), because we provide all those things. You'll be amazed at the difference a single point of contact makes.
Solidus gives a guaranteed project Price and Schedule
Many clients are surprised at the Guaranteed Project Price we give before work begins. Our experienced estimators, planners and architects enable this by working closely together to develop a very accurate scope of work. Our projects are executed in a three phase sequence. Phases One and Two involve careful planning. Phase Three is the physical construction itself.
Phase One (Project Study)
Following meetings and discussions with the client to explore requirements, budget and concepts, the team generates a detailed analysis of the project to create an itemized table of probable costs. All markups are included, with an explanation of our fees for the client's benefit. We also develop an estimated project schedule.
Phase Two (Project Development)
If the client approves, we'll deliver a more complete specification of the project, including construction documents. We can also now give our guaranteed deadline for completion and Guaranteed Project Price (GPP) after receiving bids from our vetted tradesmen. This guarantee means there will be no change orders for the project.
phase three (project execution)
Clients tell us that they really love our ability to execute on our promise. We achieve this through meticulous planning and constant communication. A seasoned Project Manager and Site Superintendent are assigned to each project, and they meet frequently with each other and the rest of the crew. This is IPD in action.
