WE OFFER A VARIETY OF PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
Fed One will go above and beyond your expectations to ensure your project is a success.
What does this mean? Fed One is not only a builder and developer. We have extensive real world experience dealing with zoning, annexation, tax abatement negotiation, working with county, city and state officials, and governmental organizations. We can help you move your project through the bureaucratic landscape, and can often shave months off the overall schedule.
Securing financing for a large project is often a less than straight forward process. Over the years, Fed One has developed a working relationship with several regional banks and mortgage brokerage companies, and we may be able to offer assistance through our connections to get your project financed. We also have experience dealing with the Small Business Association.
Fed One is service-orientated. We handle the civil engineering and office space planning in-house. When you come to Fed One with a building project, we can assist you with every aspect, from the initial design to budgeting, scheduling, and throughout the entire construction process.
Fed One works with the owner during the pre-construction phase to identify the owner’s needs, and develop plans and specifications in-house. This results in large architectural fee savings.
FIXED PRICE BUILDING CONTRACT
We use an AIA stipulated sum building contract. This eliminates owner risk resulting from unusual weather patterns or unforeseen site conditions. Change orders are limited to those specific changes in the project requested by the owner.
ON SITE PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Our on site field superintendents have an average of more than 25 years management experience. They are highly skilled in coordinating the simultaneous work of various building trades — plumbers, electricians, steel erectors, hardwall, and concrete professionals who must function in unison on the job site.
FAST TRACK BUILDING
Fed One specializes in fast track construction, where a typical 80,000 square foot building will be completed on four months, from initial groundbreaking to final certificate of occupancy. We completed a 306,000 square foot diaper manufacturing facility in eight months, from start of excavation to the initial production run.
CRITICAL PATH SCHEDULING
An essential part of fast track building is the use of critical path scheduling. Many of our projects are very complex as well as time-sensitive, involving the coordination of client equipment installation while the building is under construction. An example was the FedEx SmartPost project, where the client began installation of their sorting conveyor nearly three months before the building was scheduled for completion. This type of coordination would not be possible without employing critical path scheduling.
