Architectural Commercial Renovations
Architectural and engineered alterations and additions are an interesting and challenging project. What may look straightforward on a plan, like moving a wall, once started may reveal hidden conditions that no-one foresaw.
We work closely with a number of designers, architects and engineers to get the design and results you want whilst keeping in mind the architectural nature of the building. We are able to incorporate smart designs and the latest technologies creating a contemporary workplace for your company.
We will complete your project within the timeframe and where possible, with the least disruption to your employees and customers.
Sticking to the Budget
At Whyte Construction we use cost engineering, a practice that relates to the management of project cost. This involved activities like estimating, cost management, cost prediction, investment appraisal and risk analysis.
We budget, plan and monitor your project. We will look for the best balance between cost, quality and time requirements.
Our Quantity Surveyors have the judgement and experience required to use principles and techniques for issues of estimation, cost management, budget planning and management science, profitability analysis, project management, planning and programming.
The key objective is to attain accurate cost estimates and schedules and to avoid cost overruns and schedule slips. This goes beyond preparing cost estimates and schedules by helping manage resources and supporting assessment and decision making.
Design & Build Contracts
Whyte Construction has extensive experience in Design and Build contracts. A popular contract throughout the construction industry, it needs a contractor with strong project, design and cost management capabilities to execute it well.
We have strong relationships with our architects, engineers and other consultants, and will work closely with you to design your project, working through the specifications and obtaining any resource and building consents required, and completing your build.
Whether you are building a small addition to your workplace or changing the entire layout, Whyte Construction will apply the highest level of quality to your project.
