Velocity is defined by an object’s rate of change of its speed and direction. LIFTbuild redefines traditional construction and brings Velocity to the forefront of our process–our projects have changed the speed and direction of construction. Through our reconfigured direction of construction and simplified systems, along with maximizing off-site construction, the Velocity with which we deliver our projects will change through continuous improvement. LIFTbuild is benchmarking schedule savings significantly better than traditional construction. Our lifting process eliminates the need for tower cranes and additional equipment–the number of inefficient lifts may be reduced by 300%.
One of the greatest risks of traditional delivery methods is the inability to ensure final project cost at the conceptual stage of a project. These traditional methods typically involve the approximation and development of materials, systems, and details on a project-by-project basis, which are then installed in field conditions by different trades under highly variable working conditions. All of these factors result in hidden costs for significant waste, re-work, contingencies, and inefficient assembly processes, as well as negative impacts to the consistency and quality of the final, finished project.
Although a number of factors may impact potential cost reduction, actual experience has proven there is a potential of savings that exists to significantly reduce the cost of construction while simultaneously improving the schedule. Value within a LIFTbuild® project is driven from the combined savings of real cost through more efficient material and construction uses as well as calculated value through schedule improvement resulting in savings through less interest paid on borrowed investments and recognizing revenue sooner through product market delivery.
LIFTbuild’s approach to working with a select group of common team members and increasing efficiency through re-engineered fabrication and controlled assembly processes greatly reduces waste and variability associated with traditional construction methods. The result is overall cost improvement and higher levels of consistent quality. By simplified means and methods through our applied manufacturing processes, project Certainty is built through our confidence in our engineered solutions and our ROPE® (Resource Optimization Planning Execution) process. Truly beginning with the end in mind creates a level of Certainty that is lacking in traditionally built projects.
Certainty cannot be created alone in a vacuum – LIFTbuild’s success through Certainty requires an integrated team on board from the project’s inception, including project ownership, design, engineering, and construction teams, along with design-assist suppliers.
It is with this team makeup that each project is able to fully realize the potential of Velocity, Value, Certainty, and Safety. Learn more about how the LIFTbuild technology provides a much safer work environment.
