“Throughout the preconstruction process, NEI utilizes our entire team not only for their breadth of experience, but also for quality control.�


Preconstruction Process The preconstruction process is not complete without accurate and detailed costing. No amount of clear communication and constructability insight will benefit a project if the project cannot support the final design, or if construction efficiencies are not realized in budget savings. From the start of the preconstruction process and establishment of the development budget, NEI continually tracks and forecasts the construction costs.

“Detailed project budgets are created during development intervals and incidental decisions throughout the process will be priced to keep the team fully informed of the budget at all times.”

NEI is dedicated to reducing errors and communicating smart solutions to the challenges of design and construction. The process and the project are best served when a team of skilled professionals works together in making development decisions. All of NEI’s preconstruction and company assets are available to the design team and for the betterment of the project. Depending on the phase of development or topic of discussion, additional resources including Superintendent, Chief Estimator, Project Manager, or select subcontractors will have input.

Preconstruction Team Communication is an essential part of the preconstruction process and NEI is one of the few contractors to have a dedicated and structured preconstruction team to engage and advance every project request. Our mission is to make the final connections between those very critical elements of the project to ensure that scope, budget and project vision are ultimately met in the final successful product. NEI’s preconstruction team ensures that nothing is lost between the project team’s vision and the execution of the construction project.

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN Sustainable building development is more than simply following a checklist of strategies to increase building efficiency. Sustainable development is a commitment to the project to advance the environmental, social and economic objectives from construction start to project delivery and beyond. Sustainable building development and building practices are an integral part of our industry; whether the design intent is for a LEED® certification, or simply to reduce energy consumption and maximize building life cycle. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system of measuring building performance across the metrics that matter most: ■■ Energy Savings

analyzed and presented for team review and approval. NEI can also advise on construction practices, phasing and strategies that yield both economic savings as well as energy and environmental preservation. Additional Design Phase coordination examples: ■■ Selection and coordination of high efficiency mechanical systems and equipment ■■ Exterior performance envelope options ■■ Integration of solar photovoltaic and solar thermal systems and equipment

■■ Water Efficiency

■■ Recycled local and sustainable product selection

■■ Carbon Monoxide Emissions Reduction

■■ Building material efficiencies

■■ Improved Indoor Environmental Quality ■■ Stewardship of Resources NEI is a proud member of the non-profit USGBC organization and shares its commitment to expanding sustainable building practices. We are committed to construction methods, materials and technologies that maximize the project objectives and minimize waste. The LEED Professional Credential (LEED AP) signifies accredited participants in the green building movement who contribute expertise to the design, use fewer resources, reduce pollution, and contribute to healthier environments for their occupants and the community. NEI has professional LEED AP team members at every level to ensure each step of the project includes these sustainable ideals. Working closely with the design team, NEI defines and supports the project’s sustainable mission. In the Design Phase, NEI advises with regard to product and material choices that satisfy both the project budget and design criteria. The reliability, availability, and maintenance requirements of alternate products can be


“NEI offers a broad range of sustainable design services in each phase of the project.�


“Final acceptance testing is planned and coordinated long in advance to ensure all trade components are complete, pre-inspected by the design team, and satisfy the testing criteria.�


In the Bidding Phase, NEI further refines the available product and material choices directly with subcontractors to maintain the sustainable design mission within the project budget. Sustainable construction practices and requirements are also incorporated into trade bid packages and pricing to ensure mission consistency. The following are additional Bidding Phase coordination examples:

■■ Oversight of an integrated construction waste management program.

■■ Analyze cost effectiveness of increased LEED/Green measures.

■■ Building to successful project testing and acceptance.

■■ Qualify subcontractors to ensure experience with design intent.

■■ Careful oversight of project durability requirements. ■■ Scheduling and coordination of required benchmark project testing.

■■ Draft construction management plans to incorporate critical project requirements. ■■ Develop alternate scope and cost strategies to adjust project budget, if required. During Construction, NEI ensures that the sustainable mission is maintained from the project administration down to the actual construction and installation. Mission principles and requirements are reviewed through regular subcontractor meetings. The project schedule and team construction meetings include benchmarks and schedule targets for critical team inspections. The following are additional Construction coordination examples:

Sustainable Workplace NEI believes in a healthy Green Environment for its employees and has implemented recycling, energy saving and surplus material donation programs at our corporate office as well as at individual work sites.
