Our Lean Construction approach relies on Target Value Design to maximize the output and efficiency of a project while minimizing waste and time delay. Our Vice President of Operations, Dwayne Fleming, leads our on-site pull-planning efforts, wherein team members and subcontractors work together to plan the outcomes needed for a project. Through this process, workflow becomes more reliable and efficient as the waste of waiting, redundancy and over-processing are eliminated. This up-front collaboration is critical for allowing the team to identify and eliminate potential conflicts at the outset, making for a smoother, more cost-effective construction process.
Our advanced Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) expertise uses Building Information Modeling (BIM), which consolidates every aspect of a project – design, performance, cost and schedule – into a shareable, interactive dashboard that’s ideal for multi-stakeholder collaboration. This allows the project team to create a full “virtual build” of the project before a single beam is put in place, improving efficiencies during preconstruction and facilitating quicker, more accurate estimates during construction.
Maintaining a safe work environment is not an add-on or a premium, but rather a natural extension of a quality plan that’s well executed. Each Arc team member is responsible for consistently following all established safety procedures, and for fostering a proactive culture focused on safety.
Led by our Senior Environmental Health and Safety Manager, Danielle Zientek, we work to empower staff, subcontractors, clients and designers to learn, discover and work in a manner that protects human health and the environment.
Additionally, Dani brings decades of experience managing projects with environmental issues ranging from building components with lead and asbestos, to soil and groundwater contamination. Whatever environmental challenges arise, Arc team members have the added value of carrying forward these successful collaborative relationships to ensure a project’s success.
