REASONS TO WORK TOGETHER
QUALITY & CAPABILITIES
Whether building a superflat floor, a flawless deck garage, or an exposed architectural wall, we follow rigorous procedures to provide you with superior workmanship. At Salazar, quality isn’t just about the end product, it is at the core of our entire construction process and our approach to client service. We push our capabilities to handle difficult tolerances and specifications. We insist on the most comprehensive inspection processes led by qualified team members to confirm quality at every stage.
Quality projects are not delivered by accident. We take care to understand our client’s quality requirements. We ensure the processes and systems are included in the preconstruction and construction phases of a project. Exceptional quality has been at the heart of Salazar Concrete Construction since day one. Today, that culture has not changed. Salazar prides itself on superior quality throughout.
ON GOING QUALITY ASSURANCE
We conduct thorough reviews of client contracts and supporting construction documents to ensure that we can achieve specified quality requirements. At critical points of transition, we use specific processes and meetings to transfer relevant knowledge to all parties. We regularly review and analyze the job management process documents to ensure that client requirements are met throughout all phases of a project.
We are known for meeting the most aggressive schedules. We pride ourselves on driving production – setting the pace for trades on the job site. Under normal conditions, we identify innovative solutions that cut production time. When a seemingly insurmountable hurdle arises, we find a solution. Whether by pre-planning to identify workflow issues or anticipating next day’s pour, Salazar crew will get the job done, fast. Our teams have been called upon repeatedly to aid projects that were in production and facing seemingly impossible challenges, we successfully got the job done – on time.
PLANNING AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Successful projects rely on smart, comprehensive planning. Our rigorous project management process is the foundation that supports our quest to be the best and allows us to deliver superior work. This meticulous process has been shaped and refined over four decades of management and construction experience. Built on principles of self-evaluation and continual quality improvement, it starts with preconstruction planning and dictates the day-to-day actions that we use to achieve consistent, quality construction.
STRICT BUDGET MONITORING
We use advanced systems to generate daily and weekly reports to track our costs and productivity for all individual work items. Utilizing various tracking logs we keep a close eye on the status of work items, always staying up to date on what is remaining to complete each one, and compare it to the budget. This method gives us an accurate picture of the financial state of the project at all times. It also allows us to mitigate any undesired circumstances before they become problematic.
Putting sophisticated scheduling methods and experienced project teams to work, Salazar accurately projects and executes the milestone dates on a project. Through our impeccable execution, and our close interface with design engineering teams, we can easily manage the processes needed to achieve desired completion dates. As projects evolve, we relay relative project information to the engineering team to save design and construction time.
