The traditional construction model is often highly inefficient – a challenge addressed by McKinstry’s integrated delivery. Our unsurpassed range and depth of in-house expertise and capabilities provides our customers with single-source accountability for any project – including design, pre-construction, fabrication, and construction services. Close working relationships between our tradespeople, designers, and field professionals lead to streamlined communications on every job. The result – savings of time and money and a finished structure that performs up to the highest expectations.
All Trades In-House
Performing all major trades with our own people gives us a full understanding of every issue, need, and requirement. McKinstry’s in-house trades include:
- Design engineering
- Fire protection
- Architectural metals
- Energy services
- Building controls systems
- Fabrication and installation
- Maintenance and service
All design and shop drawings are integrated and coordinated, creating an exceptionally efficient operational plan before crews even set foot on-site. Project costs are lower due to the elimination of additional mark-up structures associated with multiple subcontractors.
McKinstry initiates the detailing process before the final construction documents are completed. By utilizing BIM and other technologies, our detailers deliver vital routing and layout feedback to designers, helping create final plans in which there is room for all necessary technologies and in which all systems are coordinated.
In our 100,000 square foot fabrication facility, we pre-fabricate single and multi-system configurations in advance of delivery. So instead of receiving dozens or even hundreds of individual parts at a job site, construction teams receive complete assemblies, ready to install – assemblies that arrive the day they’re needed and not a day before. This streamlined delivery system saves our customers both time and money.
Due to our self-perform capabilities with our in-house trades, we can use GMAX pricing strategies on projects. Based on these guarantees, our clients can build their business plans with added confidence.
McKinstry assumes complete responsibility for the start-up and commissioning of all systems. Our in-house team routinely commissions all of our projects, insuring that the completed structure functions as designed.
