PIVOTEK Experience | Process

The Experience

Painless: The primary need for components in construction can be attributed to the heartache the skilled trades industry has experienced over the last several years due to lost talent.

  • Single source for design, engineering, preconstruction, manufacturing and installation reduces the pain associated to coordinating, scheduling, and maintaining multiple contacts, trades, and scheduling factors for the building’s most labor intensive areas.

Predictability: The need for accuracy in project execution is particularly important now as cost, schedule, and risk aversion is essential due to a reduced labor force and unpredictable economy.

  • The uniformity in design, delivery, and cost of a component reduces inefficiencies while offering the most certainty and best value for the owner.

Productivity: According to forconstructionpros.com, as much as 90 minutes per person per day is wasted simply “looking for stuff.”  Congested project sites and limited space for materials and staging can create massive losses in jobsite efficiency

  • Inefficiencies lead to lost time and ultimately an increase in project costs because the time to finish the project increases although the hours budgeted remain the same. Manufacturing eliminates variance to produce a higher quality produce at a much higher rate on time.

Precision: Today our trade partners and construction managers are often managing multiple people, projects, and scopes of work all at the same time. If mistakes are made, resources are needed for rework which may involve a different crew or reliance on additional subcontractors which makes quality consistency another obstacle.

  • In manufacturing, the design of a component like a bathroom or kitchen can be reproduced steadily while maintaining the same accuracy for every unit each time.
  • Each unit is designed to project specifications and are incorporated into our assembly process where accuracy is measured by a system of documented quality control verifications.

PIVOTEK PROCESS
Feasibility

A detailed review of the project design and early opportunity to evaluate the process and benefits of integrating components into the overall building plan with client and their proposed builder, architect, and engineer.

Engagement

Collaborating with the project team to coordinate approvals on project unit types, design considerations, building plan and schedule, and proposed unit specifications and finishes. Typically begins with project kickoff meetings and recurring communication with designers and key subcontractors to finalize scope of work and establish key design and preconstruction milestones.

Engineer

Our team works with the owner and end user along with the build and design team to ensure that all proposed components meet project specifications, design criteria, and code compliance. Weekly meetings to review important design features, utility and drain connections, and accessibility obligations are finalized prior to the completion of a unit mock-up.

Manufacture

Final approvals of mock-up, design, and finishes are complete and approved. Materials are procured for incorporation into the PIVOTEK manufacturing process. PIVOTEK’s utilizes LEAN manufacturing principles, detailed quality control program, and third party inspection process to ensure that your units arrive on time, within budget, and punch list and inspection complete.

Install

Whether or not our clients utilize PIVOTEK’s internal installation team or available onsite resources, PIVOTEK is committed to confirming that the installation of our components is a success. We work with the construction team early on to establish and installation process that addresses your specific project. We provide onsite support, training, templates, and equipment to assure the ease of installation.
