General Contracting New Jersey
GWG Construction Management uses both engineers and architects for all of their projects in order to bring together the best of both form and function.
In actuality, many different types of engineers need to work together to complete a project. At GWG Construction Management, we specialize in value engineering, which means that we strive for functionality at the lowest cost.
The engineering services listed below are an example of the different kinds of professionals that G William Group employs throughout a project. GWG provides construction management and general contracting services to commercial clients in New Jersey.
Civil engineers design, build, and maintain large-scale construction projects having to do with our country’s infrastructure. This includes our transportation systems such as airports, roads, and railroads, tunnels, bridges. It also encompasses water supply systems such as dams and sewage treatment. These engineers need to know the properties of different construction materials such as concrete and steel and what types of machinery should be used with their construction. It’s also important for them to have in-depth knowledge of load-bearing structures and statistical analysis in addition to construction techniques. Furthermore, civil engineers are expected to be familiar with all local, state and federal building codes.
Civil engineers also play a big role in site development permitting because it is central to the success of a project. Indeed, the permitting process is often the riskiest stage of any general contracting project because it can lead to cost overruns, scheduling delays and multiple project changes if not done correctly. In addition to site selection, they also solicit bids from subcontractors, and oversee all phases of construction form start to finish.
Basically, these engineers are involved with every part of a major construction project.
Structural engineering, a sub-specialty of civil engineering, deals with how frameworks of structures are designed to deal with environmental stresses and pressures. Basically, structural engineers are responsible for the safety and stability of bridges and buildings. As a result, they are thoroughly involved in the inspection and design of commercial structures from the initial planning phases right through to construction.
For instance, they make sure that they do not rupture or collapse due to weather conditions or gravity. They typically design floor and roof framing, foundations, walls, arches and columns. Because project budgets depend on the cost and the efficiency of a building’s structural system, it’s important for a structural engineering team to have experience dealing with different materials such as precast concrete, structural steel, timber and masonry.
By keeping the structural engineering process in-house, G William Group can easily adjust plans for specialized equipment such as cranes or add specific service areas like equipment pads or machine pits.
Mechanical engineers, however, deal with things that move such as robots, farm machinery, industrial appliances, and vehicles. Furthermore, they design the control systems and instrument panels for these machines as well. Consequently, they need to be familiar with basic motion and power components such as combustion pressure, gravity and electromagnetism. A mechanical engineer often works with these components to design more complicated devices. For example, many of the machines used by the military such as ships, artillery, and aircraft were designed by mechanical engineers.
In addition, many mechanical engineers handle fire protection, plumbing, refrigeration, HVAC, industrial ventilation and utilities system design for commercial construction projects ranging from institutional to educational to medical facilities.
Usually, they will collaborate with the architects regarding various design elements in order to maintain the efficiency of a project, improve energy conservation, and even to be more environmentally responsible. For instance, a mechanical engineer may be responsible for the review and calculations of equipment size, ventilation, system safety, energy compliance and more. Commonly, mechanical engineers design to fit the specific needs of a facility according to the building program, the site’s climate and the energy utilities’ billing systems.
At G William Group, we recognize that engineering services are the critical to the functionality of commercial buildings and facilities. Our professional team of engineers provides services for warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, food processing, and sports and recreation facilities among others. Furthermore, our company has a longstanding track record of both designing new projects and reworking existing facilities.
