JCM’s full value is realized within the Design/Build relationship. With over 25 years of practical knowledge and experience building mechanical systems for everything from Labs to Mixed Use Residential High Rises JCM fosters a collaborative effort throughout design providing the input and “real world” application knowledge required to produce a complete set of documents on time and within budget. JCM’s unique approach to Design/Build eliminates risk at multiple levels during procurement. Our in-house engineers confer throughout the duration of the design with our operations staff ensuring the client receives a design which utilizes the best industry standards, means and methods. Contact us and we’d love to tell you more about it!
Our Pre-Construction department supports the General Contractor and Developer community by providing information including but not limited to project costing/budgeting, system selection, means and methods, value engineering, market conditions, building code, LEED requirements and plan/specification estimates. This broad range of topics makes Pre-Construction one of the key services we offer at JCM and gives our clients and potential clients the ability to gain a better understanding of their needs and budget heading into a project.
Drafting and Coordination
JCM is advanced in its application of the various Computer-aided design (CAD) formats demanded by today’s marketplace. 3-D design within “virtual environments” is done via Revit and Auto-CAD with Navisworks there to facilitate clash detection, expediting the multi-trade coordination process. JCM’s Coordination department is supported by a state of the art facility where our coordinators maximize the capabilities of the coordination software utilizing numerous monitors and high speed servers built to accommodate the large files the process produces. Our drafting and coordination staff is experienced and passionate about generating clean, precise shop drawings that our field staff can install confidently and efficiently.
Details! Details! Details! JCM’s Prefabrication department allows us to pay attention to all the finite aspects of a client’s project. Expanded in 2012 and again this past fall (16’) our prefabrication process produces piping systems which are constructed, tagged, and tested within a controlled environment, often ready for your job prior to the concrete curing! Working hand in hand with Drafting to produce detailed spool drawings from the approved multi-trade coordination drawings our prefabrication facility allows our operations staff to accomplish numerous objectives including, zero lot line construction, accelerated schedules, installation immediately following re-shore removal, and aggressive sequence of construction activities.
