CONSTRUCTION SERVICES

Hoeft Builders West Inc specializes in many aspects of the construction industry. With a specific understanding of the customer’s expectations and keeping up with the most recent building practices Hoeft Builders West stands behind a strong belief in the traditional general contracting method of construction. Hoeft Builders is dedicated to providing all customers with personalized services related to general construction, construction management, property management and design builds.

Preconstruction Phase Approach

Hoeft Builders West early involvement minimizes costly surprises and allows you to ask what-if
questions about budgeting, scheduling, materials, and design options prior to commencing work. Our
knowledge of material and construction costs, structural alternatives, and mechanical and electrical
systems can significantly impact the quality, cost, and timing of construction. By partnering with the
design team at the earliest possible stage of the project, we can combine our experience with industrial
projects to make the best value recommendations for the project.

Design Program Review for Best Project Value

We will seek innovative ways to enhance design, mitigate risks, and save money that will be available to enhance your facility and maximize the best use of your budget. Working closely with the design professionals, mechanical and electrical subcontractors, and major systems suppliers, we will collaborate to positively enhance the project, and assist in prioritizing your needs for this project.

Constructability Review to Streamline the Project

During this process, we will use our team’s extensive expertise to eliminate or reduce conflicts, and
proactively re- solve any potential inconsistencies in design documents before those documents are
put out to bid. Hoeft Builders West proactively involves our superintendents, and major local
subcontractors and suppliers in constructability analysis.

Our approach includes early preparation of Hoeft Builders West plans for risk analysis, construction
materials flow, and site logistics using Hoeft Builders West well-established construction procedures to
identify the correct plan for this project, providing maximum safety and minimal disruption. We will
also identify materials compatible with adjacent surfaces and long-lead items that could impact the
schedule. This review also takes into account the time of year in which the construction will be taking
place. The type of structural system, connection details, and exterior skin will vary depending upon the
season in which the building will be built.

Value Engineering /Cost Savings Approach

Value engineering and value analysis are continuous procedures that occur prior to and in conjunction
with constructability reviews. It involves analyzing a building component’s design from a construction
viewpoint with the goal of balancing performance and quality against initial and total life-cycle costs.
A collaborative process, this can result in cost-savings opportunities, along with aesthetic or
performance enhancements without sacrificing quality. Hoeft Builders West will work closely with an
architect to ensure design integrity is maintained throughout value engineering and the entire project
process.

Safety Records/Approach

Hoeft Builders West continually stresses safety with our employees, our subcontractors, our clients
and their employees and the general public. Our goal on every project is to have everyone that has
any involvement in the project go home safely at night.

Our safety program includes ongoing training, on-site evaluation and site specific plans. Pre-planning
and documentation are also important parts of our program. We look at each project and assess the
potential safety risks associated with the project and develop a comprehensive safety program for each
project.

Quality Control

Hoeft Builders West prides our success and reputation on repeat customers. In this highly competitive
industry, repeat business comes in only one way; excellent quality. This can only be achieved by
ensuring that all levels of the construction process are watched in the field by a qualified
Superintendent as well as financially from the office Project Manager.

Subcontractor & Schedule Management, Progress Meetings, Project Reporting and Cost Reporting and Tracking

Hoeft Builders West uses the most comprehensive project management tools to ensure our projects
are on time and on budget. Our Scope of Services document is an internal document which we use as
a checklist started when we first start talking to a potential customer from the feasibility, design/build,
preconstruction, construction, post- construction to the warranty phases on every project.
Additionally, we use project schedules—an overall and a very detailed schedule to ensure schedules
are met. We also use an internet based, real time construction management program that allows us to
share floor plans, files and RFI’s with everyone involved in the project; the customer, the construction
management team, the subcontractors, the architects and engineers. This online tool is a blueprint,
punch list and construction scheduling program that allows us to share up-to-date data with the whole
team in seconds. In addition we hold weekly progress meetings with the owner and the entire
construction team. Project reporting happens on a continual basis.

Project Completion, Follow up and Warranty

Hoeft Builders West works closely with the architect/engineer for project close out items in order to
achieve occupancy for the building. Hoeft Builders West continues working for the customer when the
project is complete. Once an occupancy permit is achieved for the completed project, Hoeft Builders
West remains in contact as the customer moves into the new facility. Building performance is very
important and we work closely with the subcontractors, our clients, and the architects to make sure
their building is performing at the level it is designed for. Operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals
are turned over to the customer which includes; project contact list, construction warranties, product
warranties, products manuals, and as-built drawings. An on-site training will be provided at building
closeout.

At Hoeft Builders West we believe that traditional construction practices and personalized management of the overall construction process create not only high quality buildings but happy and satisfied customers.
