DESIGN History Menu of Services
Presented for: Developed for each part of the project at the end of design and buy-out, focusing on critical, high priority details Continuing education is an important part of our culture and all Kitchell employees are encouraged and provided the opportunity for further education. Kitchell provides a wide range of formal training to broaden our employees’ knowledge of risk avoidance, techniques, construction materials, and construction means and methods Training & Education Mock-Up & Testing Identify all systems and components that should be tested and/or assembled before actual construction. Confirm acceptability and refine inspection checklists for field use. Mock-ups are digitally recorded for use during and after the completion of the assembly and to refer to by new team members Inspection Criteria The process Kitchell Quality Assurance uses to capture lessons learned from current and past projects and leverage them on your project reinforcing Kitchell’s dedication to continuous process improvement Lessons Learned QUALITY
ASSURANCE Assessment of the project in design based on known and unknown project factors, budget, time, location, materials and delivery strategies. The resulting “risk score” enables the Team to proactively address/target specific areas of concern before design is completed Risk Assessment Reviews of the design documents formally identifies and documents high risk and conflict areas in a prescriptive manner, allowing the design team to proactively address issues or pay special attention in detailing difficult conditions before construction Constructability Reviews Held at the start of each major work element, involve the Client, Architect and appropriate subcontractors, suppliers and manufacturers, to discuss and adjust, if necessary, final means and methods for a total quality installation Pre-Assembliew Kick-Off /
Pre-Construction Conference Continuously provided on all Kitchell projects, directly to the Team as well as Senior Management. This real-time field information based on the inspections is vital in identifying trends or possible issues that can be proactively addressed Metrics & Analysis Using project specific inspection criteria, an independent 3rd Party inspects each element of the Work as its being placed. All conforming and nonconforming items are recorded. Nonconformances are closely tracked, remedied, re-inspected and documented, before that area of the Work is allowed to close-out Inspections & Documentation In 1950, Sam Kitchell came to Arizona and founded Kitchell with a focus on innovation in construction and client satisfaction. It is our firm commitment to those ideals that has resulted in a growing list of long-term, repeat clients who rely on Kitchell, not only as their development partner, construction manager and/or general contractor, but also as their trusted advisor. DEVELOPMENT As the developer on more than 1,000 projects, we’ve conducted feasibility studies, navigated challenging land entitlement and permitting requirements and raised private equity capital. As a result, we are able to provide support in these areas that will immediately add value.
