Project Management

Putting planning into practice through effective construction management

Planning is the foundation for quality control in any project. Before we take bids, before we select materials, USMS prequalifies subcontractors and suppliers ensuring you get the best value for your project in terms of service, price, schedule and quality of work.

While planning lays the groundwork – putting this planning into practice through effective construction management provides you with consistent, measurable results. US Manufacturing Solutions creates a detailed and specific quality management plan on every project in which key project participants are responsible for monitoring quality throughout each stage of construction. Instead of compounding the impact of potential punch list items, we “punch as we go” which results in less rework, a reduced potential for injuries, improved schedules and lower costs.

Throughout the project we are constantly looking for value engineering opportunities to reduce costs and improve turnaround. And as the project nears completion, we support your operations with transition services that include equipment commissioning, warranty management as-built documentation and more.

Our Project Monitoring and Quality Control Services Include:

Value Engineering for Cost Savings

Value Engineering is a formal, structured process to ensure capital projects meet or exceed cost objectives without compromising project quality. US Manufacturing Solutions’s project teams use value engineering throughout a project, evaluating options with a focus on reducing project capital costs as well as life-cycle costs.

Our value engineering process divides the total project’s scope of work into components, and examines each individual component for alternatives that offer benefits in the areas of engineering design, equipment, material selection, construction, operations and maintenance. It is a structured application of proven techniques, applied at multiple phases of the project, with the primary objective to identify cost reductions.

Value engineering is an area in which US Manufacturing Solutions excels, with an established record of success in achieving major cost benefits for our clients.

Dynamic Staging

The construction process is typically linear, with one stage following another. For most industrial and commercial contractors, you cannot move on to item 2 until item 1 is done. The problem is that there are always issues when dealing with complex manufacturing equipment. Often equipment is delivered at the wrong time and must be installed immediately, parts are missing, or delivered out of order. Or it arrives before base systems are complete. All of this generally results in construction delays.

Not with US Manufacturing Solutions. Or dynamic staging model allows us to adjust our staging process to ensure the most time-efficient and cost-effective design and build. We have spent decades developing this dynamic approach, and can respond at a moment’s notice to change direction, reorder processes, and employ additional resources to ensure your equipment is installed correctly, on time, and cost-effectively, regardless of unforeseen events like weather, inspectors, delayed deliveries, insufficient supplies…We don’t let anything stop our work from moving forward…so your project is always moving forward.

Environmental Compliance & Site Remediation

The team at US Manufacturing Solutions has extensive experience in site remediation, having helped clean up major disasters such as the BP Deep Horizon Oil Spill, and natural disasters including Hurricane Katrina.

This experience provides our corporate clients with the knowledge that we can ensure their job sites, lines and operations will meet environmental regulations from day one.

In the event of a problem, USMS has the expertise to perform remediation and site services, which encompass emergency response, identification of unknown materials, soil removal using heavy equipment, site chemical containment, neutralization and cleanup.

Permitting & Certificate of Occupancy

At US Manufacturing Solutions we love cutting through the red tape of bureaucracies for our clients, so that they can focus on running their business. After 25 years of managing commercial and industrial construction projects all over the United States, there is very little our team hasn’t seen, and that experience gives us an advantage when it comes to working through the various permitting processes. It allows us to identify new ways to save you money by adjusting plans to meet code in ways other contractors may not have discovered. And it allows us to ensure a smooth transition for our clients from build to live operations.

Equipment Commissioning & Warranty Programs

Working with manufacturer reps, or bringing in specialists of our own, US Manufacturing Solutions provides complete equipment commissioning services, testing all systems and lines to verify they function according to design objectives and specifications.

We also provide a complete review of all equipment warranties, ensuring all installation and testing guidelines are followed to ensure that your warranties are protected.

Accurate As Built Documentation

Because our dynamic staging and value engineering processes require flexibility and agility, our skills at maintaining accurate “As Built” plans and documentation are second to none.

Our long years of providing facility maintenance and renovation services for complex semiconductor fabrication facilities has made us appreciate accurate As Built documentation. We are sticklers for ensuring that the final As Built plans we turn over to our clients reflect the current condition of the project with exceptional accuracy.
