Hensel Phelps employs a proven management process that we have established over more than three-quarters of a century creating landmark buildings for our clients. Incorporating our experience and insight, as we work with the various teams, results in our ability to provide the most efficient building systems and solutions for our clients. We are world-class providers of all aspects of construction services, and we are leaders in how we apply our use of knowledge, experience, innovation and technology via Building Information Management (BIM), as well as our commitment to Safety, and our extensive and comprehensive Quality Control Process.
Our philosophy is to apply technology in ways that enhance our ability to deliver projects faster, more cost effectively and with a greater level of quality. Starting in preconstruction, we use BIM to visualize the work, quantify the scope and schedule the construction activities.
Starting in preconstruction, we use BIM to visualize the work, quantify the scope and schedule the construction activities. The technology is carried into the field where timely model information management help our field personnel get it right the first time through coordination of the building systems, prefabrication, efficient processing of shop drawings and RFIs, and quality control. Paperless technology and mobile devices allow us to instantly access the model in the field, enhancing quality, cost management and expediency.
BIM has many applications and we at Hensel Phelps expand the concept of virtual design and construction, utilizing it in four areas:
Hensel Phelps’ high standards for quality are achieved through continual, open communication with the client and the Design team by implementing a comprehensive Quality Control (QC) Program that provides the roadmap for the project and includes the following key elements:
Hensel Phelps employs an outstanding safety incentive plan involving every employee at every level to truly “rally the troops” and keep everyone motivated to work as safely as they can. Safety planning is an important consideration during the design process with a focus on both construction safety and the safety of the future client operations and maintenance personnel.
In support of this zero-accident safety culture, Hensel Phelps manages safety proactively utilizing our proprietary Safety Accountability for Everyone (S.A.F.E.) program, performing regular safety audits, daily safety task assignments (STA), and Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) for each definable feature of work. We use the building information model to visually analyze potential safety issues virtually, resolving them before they manifest themselves in the field.
Our project controls, developed over decades of experience, are utilized to monitor the safety performance on the project and assign responsibility for the site-specific programs.
