You have a business to manage, thousands of swine to manage, maybe even investors to manage. Do you really want to manage a complex construction project as well? Summit’s turnkey approach to planning and construction lets you focus on your business, while we take care of getting your facility built right, when you need it and on budget.
Comprehensive Project and Construction Management
It’s all about expertise, quality and ROI. Summit brings all three to the construction process. Our Construction Managers understand engineering plans and how to execute them. They know that every detail is foundational to a successful building and consider every factor:
- Soil prep
- Site logistics
- Water sources
- Materials procurement
- Materials transport
- Subcontractor schedules and relationships
Summit’s turnkey approach takes away the headaches and additional expense associated with fractionalized project management. It creates a cohesive, coordinated and consistent level of quality. Most importantly, you can count on Summit to follow through on its commitments and promises.
You get what you pay for. Summit has the relationships and experience necessary to better manage procurement costs, but we don’t jeopardize quality or your investment in the process. A good quality facility shouldn’t be riddled with replacement costs, wiring issues or material failure.
Roofs are a perfect example. Since there’s no warranty on steel for hog barns, the materials you choose must be durable. Summit steel roofs usually last around 20 years, yet some of our competitors’ only last seven. When you consider the labor that comes with removing and replacing a roof, material costs and swine management during the re-roofing process, the cheaper steel becomes very expensive indeed.
Schedules. Materials quality. Regulatory codes. Safety regulations. During a large construction project, these represent the greatest risk to your business. When Summit manages a project, we take that risk away.
Our thorough approach to project management:
- Brings predictability to the job
- Creates a seamless, efficient process
- Insures that all parties work together
- Protects schedules
- Provides a consistent level of quality
- Maintains a safe site
All the options you need
While we are expert at specifying and sourcing all of the aspects of a successful swine facility, we don’t lock you into specific suppliers. Instead, we provide high quality, proven options so you can choose what’s best for your business, animals and overall investment.
