Construction Management

Construction administration and management involves overseeing all aspects of a construction project – from inception to completion – no matter what surprises may come along each day.

This includes coordinating with architects, engineers, contractors, and subcontractors, managing budgets, schedules, and resources, ensuring compliance with building codes and regulations, and resolving any issues that arise during the construction process.

Effective administration and management are essential for ensuring the successful and timely delivery of high-quality construction projects while meeting client requirements and expectations.

General Contracting

General contracting involves overseeing and managing the entirety of a construction project.

This includes hiring subcontractors, coordinating and scheduling their work, sourcing materials, managing budgets, obtaining necessary permits, and ensuring that the project is completed on time and within budget.

General contractors act as the primary point of contact for clients, taking responsibility for all aspects of the project from start to finish, and ensuring that it meets quality standards and regulatory requirements.

Project Development

Project development in construction refers to the process of conceptualizing, planning, and preparing a construction project for execution. This typically involves several key stages:

  • Conceptualization: This stage involves identifying the need for a project, defining its goals and objectives, and conducting feasibility studies to assess its viability.

  • Planning and Design: Once the project is deemed feasible, detailed planning and design work take place. This includes developing architectural plans, engineering designs, and specifications to outline the scope, requirements, and parameters of the project.

  • Financing and Procurement: Securing funding and resources for the project is crucial. This may involve obtaining financing from investors, securing loans, or obtaining government grants. Additionally, procurement involves sourcing materials, equipment, and labor necessary for construction.

  • Permitting and Regulatory Compliance: Before construction can begin, obtaining necessary permits and approvals from relevant regulatory authorities is essential. This ensures that the project complies with local building codes, zoning regulations, and environmental requirements.

  • Construction Execution: With all necessary preparations in place, construction can commence. This involves mobilizing resources, managing subcontractors, and overseeing the construction process to ensure that the project progresses according to plan.
  • Quality Assurance and Control: Throughout the construction phase, quality assurance measures are implemented to ensure that work meets specified standards and requirements. This involves regular inspections, testing, and monitoring of construction activities.

  • Completion and Handover: Once construction is complete, final inspections are conducted to verify that the project meets all contractual obligations and regulatory requirements. The project is then handed over to the client or end-user, and any necessary documentation and warranties are provided.

  • Post-Construction Activities: After completion, project developers may provide ongoing support, maintenance, or management services as needed. Additionally, they may conduct post-construction evaluations to assess project performance and identify areas for improvement.

Civil and Site Work

As an open-shop contractor with a strong record of high-quality self-performed work, Staples has developed a core group of outstanding craftsmen.

Self-performing civil and site work refers to the capability of a construction firm to directly execute certain aspects of a project without relying heavily on subcontractors. In this context, it means that Staples employs its own skilled labor, equipment, and resources to complete specific tasks related to civil and site work.

Staples prioritizes our extensive capabilities in civil construction and often self-performs the earthwork and grading operations, especially on complex sites. This allows our team to have greater control over the quality, schedule, and cost of the project, especially on the front end activities while setting the expectation for work progression and schedule.

By managing the quality, speed, and efficiency of the project during the highest concentrations of risk, we mitigate the potential uncertainties of hiring third-party entities during the most critical period of the project.

And by having in-house expertise in these areas, Staples Construction can offer more competitive pricing and maintain greater flexibility in project scheduling. 

SCC’s self-performed civil and site work include:

  • Selective soft demolition
  • Hard demolition
  • Minor rough carpentry scopes
  • Earthwork
  • Grading
  • Excavation
  • Stormwater utilities
  • Concrete work
