Quality Assurance


When you work with the best general contractor, you ensure a better finished product. We are proud to provide comprehensive site development and construction services on all our projects. Our principals are active in the planning, execution and completion of each Gulf Stream project to ensure high-quality results for our clients.

Gulf Stream’s proven methods of quality assurance allow us to avoid potential problems thereby minimizing possible delays, cost overruns and re-work of installed components. The result is a project that remains on schedule, within budget and that satisfies our clients’ needs and exceeds their expectations.

Scheduling


Timing is everything. With that in mind, we train each team member to understand not only his or her individual job, but also how all the components of a project come together. A sense of context combined with our advanced time-task resource software ensures adequate staffing and materials for each phase of development. Furthermore, we own and maintain a fleet of more than 150 pieces of heavy construction equipment, enabling us to schedule the equipment’s availability according to our clients’ needs. We use a critical path chart to guarantee that decisions and actions occur in a timely manner.

Cost Control


We know how much your investment in a project with Gulf Stream means to you. That’s why we calculate costs and research all possible alternatives as we plan each project to deliver a comprehensive budget that intersects the most cost effective and the highest quality components.

After performing a total budget evaluation, we adjust the budget according to design and documentation requirements to reflect realistic project costs. Our clients ulxtimately control any changes to the budget and estimated project costs.

DBE


Gulf Stream is committed to the equal opportunity for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) to participate on our projects. We encourage diversity in all aspects of our work, including on-site construction, material suppliers and support services.

 Value Engineering


Value Engineering (VE) is an integral part of Gulf Stream’s quality assurance and cost control processes. We identify possible alternatives to equipment, materials or systems that can reduce overall project costs and enhance the value of a project without compromising quality or reliability.

Our VE team consists of experienced, detail-oriented individuals with a working knowledge of local subcontractors, material suppliers, traders and market tendencies. Gulf Stream VE experts examine the following elements:

  • Alternate designs or construction materials
  • Application of construction equipment
  • Selection of equipment, materials and systems
  • Availability of labor and materials
  • Life cycle cost compared to original costs
  • Project program requirements
  • Recommendations regarding the feasibility of construction systems
  • Site use and improvements
  • Time requirements for construction and installation benchmarks
