This comprehensive Construction Services package ensures a commitment to quality and personalized attention by establishing systems to monitor progress, provide coordination, and ensure success. With frequent communication, Cobb Hill is able to educate and guide clients through each phase of construction, building a trustworthy relationship and ensuring that the process is as positive as possible. Its as important to the staff at Cobb Hill that your construction experience is as pleasant. It’s should be a fun and exciting process.
Cobb Hill is proud to offer professional interior design services. Our on-staff designer will assist the client to identify, research, and creatively solve problems to interpret the function and quality of their project. Services include programming, design analysis, space planning, and aesthetics; using specialized knowledge of construction, building codes, and materials. The design process follows a systematic methodology to ensure that the needs and resources of the client are satisfied in a project that meets their goals.
Appropriate project planning is a critical step in any type of assignment. Ensuring that the owner, architect, and engineer are all in sync is just a small part of what Cobb Hill offers as part of their preconstruction services.
The Initial Estimate is also a task that Cobb Hill will manage, working with the owner and architect to distinguish a clear scope and prepare an estimate. Cobb Hill will then work the estimate into a clear and defined budget, to which manpower and material selection can be designated and then worked into a project schedule.
Cobb Hill utilizes Feasibility Studies and Value Engineering to ensure that the design, materials, manpower, schedule, and budget are all in sync. The project schedule will be closely monitored by Cobb Hill throughout the entire design, planning, and construction phases to ensure that the project progresses smoothly.
At Cobb Hill, a Project Supervisor is designated to remain on-site, full time, to oversee all work, including the coordination of any subcontractor work. A Project Manager is also assigned to ensure that every aspect of the job stays on track, and is also responsible for cost control and reviews all subcontractor and material invoicing.
Cobb Hill continually performs inspections on the work that is produced to ensure quality and that it is in compliance with all state and local building codes and regulations. Along with the safety program and administrative procedures, the owner will be provided monthly reports detailing the summary of work performed, as well as any schedule and budget updates.
At Cobb Hill, we take building science and energy conservation seriously. We have invested significant dollars in both equipment and training. Two of our experienced employees, Peter Johnson and Ted Dickinson, have both completed their Building Performance Institute (BPI) Building Analyst Professional cerfifications. Peter and Ted are now fully qualified to preform formal building energy audits.
Cobb Hill has also created and fully equipped a specialized team with the latest tools and technology to analyze a buildings heat loss and to perform measures to correct and minimize those losses as much as practical.
The team has the capability of taking a building down to a negative pressure of -50 Pascal’s buy using what’s called a blower door test. This then allows the team to survey the building for air infiltration and leaks through the use of smoke pencils and an advanced digital Infrared camera that can see what can’t be felt.
With this information, the team can then perform air sealing and weatherization procedures to eliminate and reduce leaks to an acceptable level, thus saving energy and making the building more comfortable and healthy.
As the project is nearing completion, Cobb Hill will ensure that all utilities, operation systems, and equipment is acceptable for project turnover, and assist in the initial start-up and testing with the Contractors. Once a completion date has been determined, a comprehensive “As-Built” document will be developed and provided to the owner which will include required guarantees, affidavits, releases, bonds, keys, manuals and record drawings.
Any work completed by Cobb Hill Construction is covered by our written warranty for one full year.
