Hargrove teams with our clients on all phases of project execution from preliminary engineering through detailed design, procurement, construction, and startup.
Whether we are providing simple construction packages or complex design-build projects, our goal is to deliver a successful project. First and foremost, projects must be completed safely and provide a safe operating environment for your employees. Hargrove works to understand your project drivers while meeting your scope, schedule, budget, quality, and communication expectations.
Hargrove seamlessly integrates the front-end loading, design, construction management, controls and automation, and commissioning and startup to deliver a project as "One Team." Utilizing Hargrove as a single point of accountability for your project will reduce owner risk, reduce owner staffing, shorten project schedules, and increase cooperation and communication among all parties.
Our partnership with the Construction Industry Institute (CII) has enabled Hargrove to adopt best practices as the heart of our project delivery system.
Hargrove strives to see the "big picture" of every project in order to understand the client's objective. It is important to define the success factors, grasp the decision-making process, and understand the client's short and long-term goals, as well as how the new equipment or upgrades will affect their facility as a whole. We design with the end in mind; a smooth construction process, successful commissioning and startup, and facility operability are key factors from the beginning of every project, no matter the size.
Our project management and controls team understands the importance of accurately reporting project status, cost, and schedule. We gain alignment with our clients through interactive planning sessions, scope definition, risk analysis, change management, and the development of key project indicators.
Because we have your best interests in mind, we seek to deliver our services with the best value. Our design engineers understand value engineering and the effects of the project scale, and guard against overdesign and unnecessary spending.
When projects are done "right," they lead to continued relationships based on one another's mutual best interests. While no single customer or industry dominates our workload, we are favored by a high percentage of repeat business with much of it awarded on a negotiated basis or through a long-term service agreement. Many client relationships have lasted since Hargrove's beginning.
