General Contracting

Proper planning prior to the construction phase of a project ensures high-quality results. During the planning phase, we: 
  • Establish detailed construction schedule highlighting all activities including purchasing, fabrication, shop drawing production and construction work in place.
  • Order and expedite the delivery of all material.
  • Implement management control of all project activities.
  • Prepare and implement subcontract agreements and purchase orders.


Design/Build delivery system is based upon the original master builder concept used to build most pre-moderned projects. Under the master builder approach Altech, Inc. is responsible for the total project accountability. From inception to completion through performance, the master builder was the key organizational figure. The design/build system is a return to the fundamentals of the master builder ideals.
Rather  than  a parcelized level of  responsibility  of the  classic  design-bid-build, design-build provides  an integrated solution for the owner or client.   This  provides refuge from the finger-pointing that  has become  (unfortunately)  commonplace in  modern construction  projects and allows the  owner to look to one entity with  questions or concerns. 
Single Source
Having  several  contractors and  consultants to deal with,  an  owner has  just one contact for the project. Design revisions, project feedback, budgeting, permitting,  construction issues, and billing can all be routed through Altech, Inc. This single point of  contact allows  maximum  flexibility for  the owner to insist on a  particular  course  of action  without having to readjust contracts with  perhaps a  dozen contractors.  Altech, Inc. will leverage that flexibility for the owner's benefit by continually refining the construction  program to maximize the owner's value at the completion of the project.
Value-Based Project Feedback
Typically,  in order for a  contractor  to bid on a project,  very  specific  details  relating  to the methods  and  materials  must be  given to  avoid any ambiguity  and to  make  an "apples to apples"  comparison  of   bids.    In  a  design-build  context,  the  owner,  the   owner's  other consultants,  and  Altech, Inc. can  work  together  to  determine  what  methods  and materials  will  maximize  the  owner's  value.  In  instances  where marginally more expensive materials,  designs,  or construction methods might yield a higher return on investment for the owner  than  those  of  lower cost, the owner is free to  adjust the  project's  program without having to re-bid the project.

Construction Management

The CM Delivery System involves three phases, the Design Phase, the Construction Phase and the Post Construction Phase:
  • Under the Design Phase, Altech, Inc. and the Construction Professional on the Design Team will provide Leadership to the team offering information and recommendations on construction technology (constructibility, quality) and construction economics (cost). Altech, Inc. has the know-how to help avoid costly design elements during the Design Phase.
  • During Construction Phase Altech, Inc. will serve as the general contractor, taking full responsibility for all physical construction work. Altech, Inc. will update the owner each month with cost estimates and schedules of completion.
  • Implement management control of all project activities.
  • The Post Construction Phase is where the owner is turned over the project. Altech, Inc. will ensure that the project is fully functional and all the close out documents are completed.
